Image-in-Nation (Imagination) is how we navigate existence.
We do not see the world but our interpretation (based on IMAGES in the mind) of it.
We do not see an event but our internal IMAGES about it.
We remember through IMAGES in the mind.
It is these IMAGES that cause us pain or pleasure (actually 2 sides of the same coin).
These images, whilst having such potency on our selves, our bodies, our sensations, are illusory in the sense that as they shift and change our feeling states do too.
They are also illusory in the sense that they are akin to screen-shots or recorded scenes on a piece of film — they can be faded in direct Sunlight. They can be purified into pure Light.
As they fade in the mind, using this Light, their potency fades and they no longer have a hold on the self.
The image itself, whilst experienced as real (with all its sensorial and somatic impact as well), can be seen to be chimera-like in its essence. Essentially it has no essence. It is nothing more than a mirage.
So next time an internal image has a hold on you (bringing you into the grips of fear or anxiety or hurt) allow Divine (Perfect) Love into it to completely dissolve it and see how free you are.
