The Five Illusions of Man



For years, many philosophers and spiritualists have claimed that we live in an illusion.

I agree with them, and I believe the illusion is founded by the following illusions, which prevent us from reaching spiritual maturity and living a happy life.

The Illusion of Expectation

We always think that everybody must be the way we expect them to be, and we hate it when people don’t behave the way we want. We fail to realize that we’ll live peacefully with other folks when we learn to embrace their flaws.

The Illusion of Attachment

The illusion of attachment occurs when we think that we are one with our material possessions. It also occurs when we trust that our skills, academic qualifications, and achievements define us. This illusion leads to the rise of the ego.

The Illusion of Immortality

Today, we seldom contemplate the fact that we are mortal beings because we think we will live forever. This illusion of immortality prevents us from treasuring every moment of life because it makes us forget that life is short and death can occur at any moment.

The Illusion of Achievement

Today, most of us believe that we will be blissful and worry-free if we achieve success. We are unaware that we might be more vulnerable to worry, anxiety, or depression when we achieve success.

Most of us don’t know that many successful individuals have committed suicide because they lived in the illusion of achievement. They believed success will eradicate all their problems, but to their surprise, they had more problems when they succeeded.

The Illusion of Disunion

The biggest illusion is that of disunion. We think we are separate from God.

There is no separation between God and every creature, including us, because God manifests himself through his creation. Therefore, you are one with God.

Lastly, we are one with The Creator because life itself is God, and without God, we perish.

Have a good day.
