World of truth and world of illusion (part 1)
The world of truth is the world of “life.”
Only life really exists; nothing else essentially does.
This is one inseparable world where life weaves various tapestries moment by moment.
There is not a single thing separate, nor is there an “individual,” or a “self.”
Humans have a cerebrum (brain) that can only think relatively, perceive through the five senses, and recognize the world as a patchwork of individual things.
In other words, humans tend to be deluded that countless individual entities exist, one of them being themself.
Conversely, if you see the world of truth assuming your self exists, then it looks like a mixture of separate individuals.
That is merely the world of illusion, however.
How can we see the world of truth?
The world of truth becomes visible once the sense of self disappears and blends into the whole.
Humans aside, plants and animals have no human-like thoughts, and human babies have brains that are still developing; they live in a straightforward manner in the inseparable world without a sense of self.
Actually, at the instinctive level humans also live in a straightforward manner in the inseparable world of truth, independent of the brain and the sense of self.
You can observe this fact instantly from the various instinctive functions of the human body.
Humans are aware of the world of truth not only through the body but also by instinct or somewhere beyond, while perceiving the world as fragmented by their brains.
Even though the perception is an illusion, it is also true that humans live in the world of truth, including the illusion.
This is because nothing leaves the inseparable world of truth.
The only fact is that it feels somehow unsmooth.
Nonetheless, that is also a manifestation of life.
Perhaps, life manifests itself in a human way with some kind of intention.
How does the sense of self disappear and melt into the whole?
That is unknown.
One cannot say when or how because it just happens when it does.
It might be triggered by meditation.
It might happen when you reach a literal dead end of something.
It might happen while you’re walking casually in an absentminded manner.
It might happen while you’re washing the dishes in the kitchen.
Still, it is not that the world of truth exists somewhere.
The world of truth exists here and now.
Here and now is the world of truth.
It’s never been separated.
In the world of life, everything is complete as is and everything is fine beyond thoughts of good or bad.
