The Power of My Disillusionment

So many illusions, so little understanding. Where is the power in that? I feel a little disillusioned. Disillusionment is a feeling resulting from the discovery that something is not as good as one believed it to be. How might I re-imagine my disillusionment differently? What if I chunked it down – like this:

  • Dis – divide
  • Illusion – believing a falsity
  • ment – the condition of

Disillusionment, then, in my “new dictionary of Enlightenment” might be, “The condition of not believing in falsity.” Ah, wouldn’t that be useful!

Did I also mention that disillusionment is a gateway to Third Degree of Illumination inquiry? “How so?” you might ask.

What Truth?

As long as I defend illusion as truth, I reside firmly within the First-Second Degree of Illumination bubble. Desire for change often carries within it the seeds of inquiry in the form of, “What else can I do?” That “else” is key to unlocking a Third Degree world by questioning the truth of things as they are – the status quo.

SO – next time you feel disillusioned, rejoice! Then ASK – “What else could this mean than what I think it means?” and, “How might I be incorrect or at least inaccurate in my assessment, evaluation, or interpretation of this?” then, “Why does this appear as it does to me at this time?” and finally, “Who is perceiving this and believing it to be true?””

Disillusioned? I certainly hope so!!
