Words are slippery. If these terms are of no use to you, discard
I/You/God/The World just IS.
- Maya, the great illusion.
Maya is the world that makes itself known to us through our
senses - but not only that, it's more like the illusion/reality/existence
of the whole creation.
It is illusory and fluid, but that does not lessen its importance,
beauty, or reality.
It is / is not. (You decide what is and what is not).
Don't let its reality get a grip you or its unreality weaken
you into confusion.
The reality which is an illusion is real after all. Matter
You're the one in charge.
Similar in their meaning to Maya, but not entirely the same:
Matrices are more like creations within Creation - frames
They are a step between Maya and individual realities, if
you wish to see it from this point of view.
A matrix is a thing that comes closest to the idea of objective
There is a part/aspect of All where we can observe/experience
stability, continuity, relativity, complexity, causality,
structure, various structures of space and time.
Including what we usually mean under 'rational' and 'logical'.
A good word for this is Pattern.
It is a more fluid alternative word/perception for 'Maya'
More accurate, also, if there's such a thing.
There are patterns within patterns within patterns.
There are patterns which are Matrices, and the whole Pattern
(if you like to believe it's definable) would be Maya.
But then again, there is non-stability, non-continuity, non-relativity,
non-complexity, non-causality, non-structure. All that we
Things that elude strict formulation, but not necessarily
That's the beauty of it!
These are two sides of the same coin.
Most of our problems originate in being stuck in one reality
with heavy self-limitation, and I don't mean our 'objective'
reality only, our matrix, but more importantly the exclusive
individual realities we create.
Perceptions of realities are realities too.
There is no problem with creating individual realities, but
if we make them exclusive to the realities/thoughts/feelings/energies/consciousness
of others (if we put harsh limits to acceptance), problems
like the ones we can observe in our society come into creation.
Become conscious and shift perception!
