What is real and what is illusion? Is there really any difference in making a movie compared to being a character in a movie or experiencing this world from a personal perspective? What constitutes acting as contrasted with being an actor and with being authentic and real in this world? From the world's perspective there is a distinction made between real life human dramas and the movies. However, from the Spirit's perspective, there is no such distinction. All is one ... everything is connected. Life is a state of mind, a state of being, and is far beyond error (the world of bodies and events and dramas and scenarios). God is the only cause. Truth is true and only the truth is true!
