Let us look at the dictionary and find the official description of an 𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧.

Hmmm… something that deceives provides a misleading impression of reality.
How can it be that there is a 𝐬𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐮𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐝 of the Coronavirus at all, and a 𝐡𝐮𝐠𝐞 𝐜𝐡𝐮𝐧𝐤 𝐨𝐟 𝐜𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐞 𝐟𝐞𝐚𝐫. Are the people not living in fear of Corona living in an illusion? Or are the people that are afraid of Corona living in an illusion?
Answer – 𝘼𝙡𝙡 𝙤𝙛 𝙪𝙨 𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙣 𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣.
We all create a world view based on the 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝘄𝗲 𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗯𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝘂𝗽, the 𝗲𝗻𝘃𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 that we are in, the 𝗳𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱𝘀 we hang around with, and our 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 in what we do and what works and what does not.
By already realizing this, you are already becoming aware that 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗲. Is this a bad thing? Not necessarily.
I fall in the crowd that believes in the law of attraction, I also fall into the box of spirituality. So for me, I see every challenge as an opportunity.
I was bullied as a child, I could be either sad about this or create an illusion that I gave compassion to the ones bullying me, they might have had a terrible home situation and I sacrifice my body and mind so that they can feel happy.
𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀, 𝗜 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗶𝘁 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝘆 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗴𝘁𝗵𝘀.. I became tolerant towards the dominant 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 and the opinions of others, it does not negatively 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 me that much if it is contributing to my strength.
Another example would be my 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗲𝗻𝘃𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁, I had the pleasure to work in seven countries around the world, had over fifteen different jobs and my most fond memory of a great work environment was in an amazing hotel in 𝗕𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗻, 𝗨𝗦𝗔
This place had all the things in the right place that you had full control over 𝗴𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘀𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻. The whole hotel was geared towards making guests happy and the more you make your guests happy, the more money you find in your salary.
I 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆, and I love money so I can even make happier. It was a great experience!
Then, returning to my home country I worked in the same industry and this industry was 𝗳𝗼𝗰𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗿𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗮𝗴𝗲𝘀, 𝘂𝗻𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗱 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 and in some hotels, it was not about giving guests what they expecting, not even finding a solution to make it better for them due to 𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀. This made me feel miserable.
𝗜 𝗳𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝗶𝘀 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆, 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗽𝘂𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗹𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴. As I had to lead a team where we were just focusing on gaining income for the owners of the hotel, and not making guests happy.
This caused me 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗳𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗮 𝗯𝗶𝗴 𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗺𝘆 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴. The second time within a year after being hospitalized.
Now, enough about me. Let us talk about you.
Knowing that illusions are out there and that these illusions create energy is the first step towards a stronger you. Allow me to show you one of the most typical illusions of them all. Please watch this fragment of the movie “The Celestine prophecy” on YouTube.
As you can see, the man in the movie was trying to 𝗱𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗲 the woman, the woman 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝘁𝘀 and walks away from the conversation. Then, the guide in the movie mentioned to him that his energy was trying to dominate her 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝘆. Which is very strange in the environment of 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 the scene is based in.
If you ever been in an 𝗮𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽, or you might still be in it. Then the above video looks familiar. Know that the illusion of the one dominating you is not reality.
The technique he or she is using is called 𝗴𝗮𝘀𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴.
Here is the definition of 𝗴𝗮𝘀𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴.
“𝑮𝒂𝒔𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒊𝒔 𝒂 𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎 𝒐𝒇 𝒑𝒔𝒚𝒄𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒐𝒈𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒑𝒖𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒊𝒏 𝒘𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒉 𝒂 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒐𝒏 𝒐𝒓 𝒂 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒑 𝒄𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒕𝒍𝒚 𝒔𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒅𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒅𝒐𝒖𝒃𝒕 𝒊𝒏 𝒂 𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒈𝒆𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒅𝒖𝒂𝒍, 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒎 𝒒𝒖𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒊𝒓 𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒎𝒆𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒚, 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒄𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏, 𝒐𝒓 𝒋𝒖𝒅𝒈𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕, 𝒐𝒇𝒕𝒆𝒏 𝒆𝒗𝒐𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒎 𝒄𝒐𝒈𝒏𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒔𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒆𝒔 𝒔𝒖𝒄𝒉 𝒂𝒔 𝒍𝒐𝒘 𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇-𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒆𝒎.”
In other words, 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗶𝗻𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻.
Have you ever wondered why you always feel so behind everything? Because you are surrounded by the illusions of others. The diet program you should follow to become skinny, there are millions of them. And being skinny is even an illusion because a huge part of the civilization loves you as you are. It is just 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐫𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮.
We all live in an illusion, and 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐚 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐬, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐛𝐞. A great example would be a current World leader, he believes his illusion so strongly, that everyone else is wrong. Everything that does not serve his agenda is “fake news” And he truly believes it. As he can influence so many with his energy, his illusion is extremely dangerous. And the people that fall into his illusion have the same ideas as him, ideas of hate, jealousy, anxiety, separation, and believing the whole world is against them.
Still, I do not blame them, the best thing you can do is be compassionate towards them, they truly do not know what they are doing.
As Jesus said before according to the bible
“𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫, 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦, 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐝𝐨 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐝𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠.” – 𝐿𝑢𝑘𝑒 23:34
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂, 𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝗻𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿, they do not know any better. And as you are a compassionate and kind person, you allow them to keep their power.
If this is recognizable for you, then you already took your first step. You are aware that everyone lives in a fantasy world in their mind. You 𝗴𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗴𝘁𝗵 by being surrounded by people that can recognize your Illusion, and you 𝗹𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗴𝘁𝗵 by hanging around people or circumstances that do not contribute to your illusion.
How do you know if something contributes or not? It gives you’re a feeling of happiness. How do you know what happiness is?
Happiness is a dilemma that is hard to grasp, you know when you feel happy, you understand the feeling. And you also know what is unhappy, because there are feelings associated with that as well.
