' Illusion is an illusion '...
The mind passes through a stage when, seeking after truth, it finds out that the world is other than it seems to be, and that its material substance is not matter at all but energy: its form is illusory.
But this is not the end.
For the seeker does not stop there;
if he proceeds farther, he may find that illusion is itself an illusion.
It is next found to be derived from reality and to be a form assumed by reality.
This is the sage's enlightenment, this is his experience.
