We are surrounded by illusions that only become real for us based on what we believe them to be.
Some, in fact many of these illusions are ridiculously convincing to the point where there seems to be little value in questioning them and our immediate response is automatically to believe.
Perhaps the most destructive of these on the level of our reality, is the concept, suggestion and the accompanying belief that the way the world works and can only work is with a hierarchical structure that you might otherwise know as ‘Top-Down’.
We live a life that tells us that someone always has to be at the top or at a higher level. That for anyone to win, someone else will always have to lose.
By doing this, we completely miss the point that by accepting and by playing an active part in this system and way of thinking at any level or in any wat, we have instantaneously bought into the myth that a world that values everything based on money, greed and that values that we attribute to every form of material wealth is normal and right.
In fact, this whole way of being, thinking and doing is representative of a world that is completely upside down.
