The wonderful world of Maya

May 15, 2011

There’s a moment of truth when the traveler, having taken the healing path of light, is faced with the paradox of ego. Having learned to think of others before one-self, can you now take the separation of ego-lessness a step further?

Can you praise yourself as you praise others?

Can you love yourself as you love others?

Can you feel compassion towards yourself as you feel towards others?

Can you see yourself as you see others?

Can you listen to yourself?

Take care of yourself?

Be generous, forgiving, accepting?

Can you forget whether you’re looking at yourself or another?

Ah! That’s the crunch, isn’t it? We already have.

The veil thins, and the wonderful world of maya, illusion, is revealed as just that: a veil that tantalisingly lets in the light of the real, dimming it only to allow soul to experience this world of play and game.
