The opening statement of A Course in Miracles, which has teachings from the Jesus Christ, reads – “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”
In the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Shloka 16, Lord Krishna teaches – “The unreal hath no being: the Real never ceaseth to be. The truth about these two has been perceived by the seers of Truth.” (Translation from Sadhu Vaswani’s The Bhagavad Gita: The Song of Life)
Guruji Krishnananda has taught that the whole Creation is made of Light, Consciousness or God. Without Maya we can see only Light. Maya is a gift. It is not a curse or a limitation. God gave us the faculty of #Maya through which we could see the Creation as He created it.
When #God created many beautiful earths, mountains, trees, butterflies, etc. we found that we could see only Light everywhere. Maya helps us see things as they are created. Everything is Light. Since Light is the Source of everything and Light is real, hence all the forms that emerge from #Light are also real.
Thus Creation is real, not an illusion. Guruji taught that to believe Creation as permanent is an illusion.
Creation and our life in it are as real as we want it to be.
William Shakespeare said this in his own way – “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.”
The same timeless Truths are taught by Masters in different periods of Time or #Yugas. Such Truths remain the same for every human being throughout history irrespective of their cultural, social, religious, regional and gender identities. Immense gratitude to the#Spiritual Masters and my Spiritual Guide – Guruji Krishnananda.
