It's the illusion that is real:

Better a dish of illusion and a hearty appetite for life, than a feast of reality and indigestion therewith.
~ Harry A. Overstreet ~

It appears to me that almost any man may like the spider spin from his own inwards his own airy citadel.
~ John Keats ~

 

What is may not always be what it seems to be

This world is sometimes wildly tipsy turfy; things happen that are so unexpectedly strange they are almost unbelievable. Yet the wider variety of experiences we have, irrespective of whether good or bad, the better it will be than the mundane being repeated in a vicious cycle of experiencing the same experiences over and over.

Life is the chance to experience; the more limited our exposure to a variety of occurrences the less interesting or more mundane our life will actually be This life is our chance to be, to walk in the light of day with all our senses receptive to what the world has to offer; to be mortal, to feel, touch, communicate, to live.

We bind our mind as well as our physical ability by the restraints, real or imagined, that we create ourselves, these limit our life's progression potential. We are able to remove the imagined restraints by dismissing them, then moving beyond the barriers our mind has set for us. Actual restraints are also surmountable if we stretch our mind to challenge then overcome those restraints. We each have within us the capabilities, knowledge and fortitude to overcome any obstacle that we may be presented with during our life. It is up to each of us to embrace the challenges and grow.

Oh, how powerfully the magnet of illusion attracts.
