Seeing the Illusion to Create Paradise

Every day I see headlines in the news, and I wonder how much of it is true.  I see so many people who have been brainwashed into believing a particular viewpoint based on what may very well be a lie.  The illusion has been so well built into our system, that even when we are … Continue reading Seeing the Illusion to Create Paradise
