This is the only distinction between the dream and the real: reality allows  you to doubt, and the dream does not allow you to doubt....

To me, the  capacity to doubt is one of the greatest blessings to humanity. The religions  have been enemies because they have been cutting the very roots of doubt, and there is a reason why they have been doing that: because they want people to
believe in certain illusions that they have been preaching....

Why have the people like Gautam Buddha been so insistent that the whole existence -
except your witnessing self, except your awareness - is just ephemeral, made of the same stuff as dreams are made of? They are not saying that these trees are not there. They are not saying that these pillars are not there. Don't
misunderstand because of the word "illusion".... It has been translated as
illusion, but illusion is not the right word.

Illusion does not exist.
Reality exists. Maya is just in between - it almost exists. As far as
day-to-day activities are concerned, it can be taken as reality. Only in the
ultimate sense, from the peak of your illumination, does it become unreal,
illusory.

Commentary:


The butterfly in this card represents the outer, that which is constantly
moving and that which is not real but an illusion. Behind the butterfly is the
face of consciousness, looking inward to that which is eternal. The space
between the two eyes has opened, revealing the lotus of spiritual unfoldment and
the rising sun of awareness.

Through the rising of the inner sun,
meditation is born. The card reminds us not to look outside for what is real,
but to look within. When we focus on externals, we too often get caught up in
judgments - this is good, this is bad, I want this, I don't want that. These
judgments keep us trapped in our illusions, our sleepiness, our old habits and
patterns.

Drop your opinionated mind and move inside. There, you can
relax into your own deepest truth, where the difference between dreams and
reality is already known.
