We live in a dream world the  Hindus call “Maya”

 All is illusory–

a cosmic dream from which we will awaken

when we die.

 Just as a baby may think

it is the “end”

of  life as he knew it

when he is being shuttled through the birth canal

while being born,

so, too, we may think it is the end

when we are dying

to this world of delusion.

 But we will be born to something real,

something just beyond the veil of illusion

in which we are so enmeshed during this “life” as we know it.


“When we awaken in God we shall realize that mortal life is only a picture made of shadows and light, cast on a cosmic movie screen” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

    Right on.
    The Buddhists call it “Maya” as well. Interestingly, Buddha’s mother’s name is Maya. Now that, I don’t care for; but hey, all the religions are patriarchal.
