Each today, well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and each tomorrow a vision of hope. Look, therefore, to this one day, for it and it alone is life. - Sanskrit Poem

Ok, its Neelam.

Freaky photo! I feel as though you are right her, next to me!

MAYA = AN ILLUSION OF THE ILLUSION!
Weave your story as you dream it to be and it shall be!

Re: MAYA
*laughs*
Does my picture make you dizzy?

I think the illusions are good. For without the protection of MAYA, I would see a reality that I am perhaps not prepared for.
Ultimate reality is veiled because of the number of constraining factors that are imposed on our body and mind. What we have created is MAYA, the way the world is, at least as we see it. One may regard MAYA as something negative, but I believe that MAYA can be very beautiful. Without it, we would not enjoy life the way we do now, since it is the root of all institutions, intellectual ideas and social interactions.
Everything is beautiful, yet everything is an illusion. Everything in MAYA is beautiful.

Art is aesthetic MAYA.
Math is logical MAYA.
Literature is emotional MAYA.
Religion is spirutual MAYA.
Philosophy is speculative MAYA.
Science is fruitful MAYA.

So would it be wrong for me to say that for NOW, since I am not ready, I like living in the world of MAYA, because it is a beautiful experience in itself...

Re: MAYA
Just something I forgot to add:

We are condemned or blessed to lead a life that is both distorted and enriched by a variety of maya.

Re: MAYA
MAYA is a gift to us, for us to play with, for us to experience emotions, create society rules, do as we please. If we do not utilize MAYA to its fullest dimension, then who will? Do not feel guilty in living your experiences through MAYA, it is all just a film - you call the shots!

To experience the reality of MAYA is a shock to both your existence and your entire concept of duality. Use it and learn from it!

Re: MAYA
thank you. =)
Everything you have said makes sense.
I'm definitely taking advantage of MAYA...
