Why Live a Life of Illusion?

Post by AiR_Ravimelwani on Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:48 am

Should we live a life of illusion?  The question that comes to me is that if I know that the pizza in front of me is plastic, would I still pick that plastic pizza and put it on my plate and then admire it, smell it and look forward to eating it?  When I know that it is a plastic pizza, then what is the point in dreaming of eating this “delicious” meal?

I  know that this world is like a plastic pizza, it is not to be eaten;  because this world is a transitory world, a temporary world.  This world is not real! At the end, death will face me.  I know it; I know that I am not this body, this mind - I am something else.  I am the Energy that is inside, I am the Soul, the Divine Power, then why do I live a life of illusion?  Why do I get so engrossed in this world, in buying properties and enjoying pleasures, building relationships that will eventually surmount to be nothing,; everything has to be left behind.  It seems real today, like the plastic pizza is real in front of my eyes, but I can’t devour it, I can’t eat it, and similarly, I can’t have this world – I can’t because this world is not mine.  It is like me checking into a hotel room and thinking that the hotel belongs to me.  No, the hotel doesn’t belong to me; the room doesn’t belong to me.  I am just a guest and I have to move on eventually.  Life too is like that.  I know I have to move on.  Then why am I living this life of illusion?  Should I not wake up?  Should I not get on to truly living a life that is real?  Should I not realize the truth?
