The World is Conditional

Jason Nuggan

Quote:Do enough reading about enlightenment and you’re bound to come across the idea that “the world is an illusion”. It’s easy enough to believe. We can look at many things within our world and see that they don’t exist, yet still affect us. Money, debt, political borders, laws, and countless other ideas have a strong grasp on our daily lives. We can even look at the fabric of matter, space, and time themselves and see that on the smallest levels there seems to be nothing there at all. We’re just a hologram brought about by some mathematical waveform interfering with itself. It’s easy to then say, “Well, if none of this is real then nothing matters”. However, this isn’t what is suggested by the statement that the world is illusionary.

What the world is, is conditional...

..But we can become aware of the unconditional. You might say that that is what having an awakening actually is. By following any of a number of traditions – Magia is the one of choice for me – we can somehow miraculously, divinely, gain an awareness of things which seem to have no prerequisite for their existence. The experience of being aware of unconditional things has its source, a moment in time where a revelation occurs, but the things themselves have no external reason for their existence. They just are.

Quote:When you have a dream, you find yourself in a world which is completely internal to your mind. You can be present within it, move around, interact with others, and feel like it is the whole of reality. You can identify with your own perspective in that dream and say “this is me”, and look at other people in the dream and say “this is not me”. Yet everything within that dream has come only from your own imagination. When you experience something unconditional, you can see the illusion of this world as if it was dream. You can see it as a shadow of another world, or like you’ve confused your reflection for yourself.
