Try not to believe all that you see. Life is an illusion created by you for your learning. Yet, when you are in the illusion, because of the Self, you cannot see through it until you begin to raise your vibration.
What is an illusion? It is having an expectation that something will happen, and then it does not. The majority of humanity lives in an illusion. The world is all about illusion. Illusion is connected to the Self part of you, it is how the Self lives; creating illusions so you cannot see what the Higher Self part of you wants you to see. The Self uses illusion to keep you a prisoner in your own life, to hold you back and to delay your spiritual progress. How does your Self create the illusion? It does so because all it can see is its own pain, suffering and difficulty. The Self makes up stories about how it is being punished, how people are hurting it, and how life is creating problems for it. The Self can see all of the faults of others, but never its own faults! The Self sees itself as perfect. It will argue with you to preserve its own truth. It can never see a positive outcome of any situation! The list is endless of what the Self will do to reign supreme. The Self will feed the ego by its emotional responses, drama, and taking offence to what others say or do. The Self can never see the true purpose of life, because it lives in the illusion it creates.
