Being Disillusioned ?

Being disillusioned?


Being dis-illusioned is good!

Who wants to live in an illusion;

A lie fabricated by ones mind,

Or someone else’s opinion,

Or ones fears?


A life in illusion is not life,

Illusion is a lie fabricated in our minds,

Founded on fantasy,

serving our pride.


Who determines what is real for you?

Your mind,

Your heart,

Your conscience,

Your culture,

Your god?


Who wants reality; really?. Reality is a life free

from Illusions. Free from self serving pride!


Being dis-illusion-ed is good,

Disillusionment is real,

It’s painful to ones pride.

Being real hurts our pride;

Our self-serving ideas feed our pride.

Our self-serving ideas become our guide.

Our pride must be crucified!


Someone said;

“You worship what your fear”!

We bow down and reverence, we worship,

conforming our perceptions to align with the demands of what we fear.

We serve what we fear.

If what we fear is not real, we can fabricate illusions to make us comfortable;

safe from what we fear, thus creating an illusion we live within.

We then are living a life outside of reality.

We live a life of pride.


Being dis-illusion-ed is good it brings us into reality!

Reality is good! But it hurts ones pride!

Our pride must be crucified!


Realty is humbling, its then our pride is crucified.


“The way of the cross is the way of abandonment”    *

Abandonment to what is real and true,

Letting go of our expectations for ourselves and others we

engage in what is real, reality is living on the cross of Christ!


The cross of Christ is our place of humility,

The cross of Christ is our bridge into reality.


Live in reality. Fear God alone!


Truth, grace and mercy are real;

They are found at the Cross of Christ

When we are willing to let our pride be crucified,

Becoming free, becoming alive, being disillusioned.
