The Conquest of Illusion

May 11, 2014 § Leave a comment

“When we have seen the vision of Reality our world is changed, utterly and almost beyond recognition, and yet nothing has changed in things as they are, it is but that we have gained a new vision… It is the new vision, which is born when (we are) freed from the tyranny of illusion, that the whole world is changed and appears radiant with love and beauty, apparently utterly changed, though the change really is (within our self) alone.

J. J. Van Der Leeuw, 1951
