Flexibility Not Rigidity
I was looking towards the ocean and I saw a plane in the distant sky. I noticed that the sky and the clouds and the plane were all moving together in the same direction and at the same speed.
I could see that it was real but I also realized that it’s a perfect example of an illusion. Many times we read spiritually and philosophically that our world is an illusion and yet, it’s hard to deny isn’t it, because of its physical evidence.
So I realized that our world is flexible because when I look back at the plane it was clearly the plane moving and not the clouds but then I looked at it again a moment later and both were moving together in the same direction and speed as before.
So it was reminding me that this was real. So I come to the conclusion that it is an illusion what we see around us but because it’s a physical world and a physical place it’s an illusion with physicality.
So it’s not meant to be denied but rather it’s meant to understand that our world is more flexible than we may realize.
My feeling is this then, to set our goals towards the most benevolent outcome for all beings and even if our goals seem impossible to accomplish take it one step at a time, gently, and do as much as we can towards bringing our goals about. Goodlife
