Thanks Howard Shiffman for your thoughtful insights and feedback. You are not preaching to the choir. We are all on a journey in which we keep learning and training our mind and beliefs.
The notion of reality is a very complex one. To your point, what our mind and body perceives is an illusion. But I haven’t gotten to the extreme that ‘everything’ is an illusion either.
Your words inspired me to continue digging deeper. I just wrote a piece on the notion of identity and self and would appreciate your feedback: https://betterhumans.coach.me/the-shadow-of-the-man-i-used-to-be-c13dcc7c65e7
I will definitely check your blog. Looking forward to learn from you.
