Illusion and Positionality

Q: What, then is illusion that we hear about so much?

A: The entire perceptual illusion that the ego claims to be reality is completely and totally the product of positionality.  This is very important to unravel and understand in one’s own experiential awareness.  If you observe carefully, you will note that at the time the mind is taking a position, that position stems from choice, training, desire, emotion, or political or religious viewpoint.  From that positionality stem all the pointless sacrifice and sufferings of the world.
