What does "Arise from the Illusion" mean to me? That would depend on the definition of Illusion.
The Illusion of Not Enough: where the belief that you can't be who you are without having enough; resulting in feeling incomplete.
The Illusion of Time: focusing on what you don't have instead of what you do have.
The Illusion of Certainty: when the NEED to know an outcome, keeps you from acting
Hope can actually keep people from doing what they can do. Hope can keep us waiting, rid us of our power, and keep us doing things that don't benefit us for much longer than we normally might. I'm certainly not saying Hope isn't good. There are people who produce HOPE...and they are called creators... people doing what they CAN do. That's what it's all about. You don't have to look far to see people in the world...doing what they can do. We are the "producers of Hope".
Are you a "consumer of hope" or are you a "producer of hope"?
When you look at it this way, how can you find happiness in that materialistic world?...It's fundamentally impossible. When we expect something, it's often related to an attitude that we deserve it (entitlement) and when we feel we're entitled to something it changes from a desire to a need. The playfulness is gone. It's do or die. Black or white. I didn't think this was a great way to have fun, or live into greatness.
