Keep it simple, silly

Fairies are real

The girls are chanting, “Fairies are real.” And why not? Why would they be any more or less real than the notepad in front of me, than the words forming on the page? “I do believe in fairies, I do, I do,” they now chant. They have the method for making them real, just as Peter Pan did: believe. Everything that appears real is no more than a belief. Don’t believe your eyes and see where that takes you. Please let me know, for I still tend to believe mine.

I fill my mind with facts, when the simple truth is all. Bereft of all else, that is all that’s left. What can change cannot be true, for the truth remains constant, so what I see is a lie, believe it or not. Why would I tell myself such things? Why would I do this to me? Because if I didn’t, there would be no me. My reality makes me real.

"dreams are real as long as they last. Can we say anymore about life." One of my favorite quotes by...somebody Havelock.

Show me that which is eternal, beyond change, and I will believe you. So far I have found nothing that does not change. And this is the truth as I experience it.

The ego isn't a thing, it's a habit. A way of interpreting our experience. That's all. Simply a point of view. Whether we should have that point of view is irrelevant. We have it. But there are other points of view. The more points of view you have, the more you see. There's no limit to how much seeing is possible. Like you say in your profile, the difference is perspective.

Someone once said to me a believer is one who will "be (in the) lie (for) ever".

So believe nothing.
KNOW, from your OWN direct experience, not what the mind thinks, or what others say, or from books.
Peace.
