There may be better ways to put it, otherwise ...
Imagine the clouds descend so low that we can hardly see our hand in front of our face. Everything would be obscured, blanked, we would Be blinded to all around us even though it was there. We would still be the same person through this, nothing would change there, but what we perceive would be hazed and misty.
The soul never changes at its essence, it remains pure. I "AM" pure and peaceful, hence, victory is our birthright. Victory is so emphatic because we were pure souls all the time while the low clouds of illusion have been creating another picture, one of illusion.
What is real and what is illusion? The short answer is that, WE are real. Really pure. The illusion seems constant, always pulling, a never ending stream of distractions and negativity and illusion. It is no wonder we start to believe it. I don't know how accurate it would be to say this but, the illusion of life is so good that it almost seems real.
It can be used as a method otherwise.
It can seem like there is someone up there who's job it is to shovel fear and negative illusion into the soul just to challenge us. Indeed, I seem to remember it said that the Sat Guru (Shiva) sets the tests, whatever that means. It is time to get heavy on negative illusion, then we can experience lightness, if you know what I mean. We simply need to just let go, Gods children, house, car, world etc. We should respect nature, but not matter perhaps. I have heard it said on another forum that the skulking demons beyond can re emerge accounts within us which have already been settled, thus creating the illusion to a complete soul that they have issues to deal with. Why am I not disagreeing to at least the possibility of this?
When a soul says that we are already complete/perfect out of understanding, they have crossed a certain bridge, the glass of water is half full, but it should never mean that they have no work to do on themselves, it does not mean that, the weaknesses will always be there, there is therefore the need to check. I just need to take my own ADD VICE :| We are all pure and peaceful, already, we just need to be it. The Murli says that, if we want the world to change, we just need to change ourselves and it will change. It does not need all to change their perception of them-self to bring this about.
