Still...life

Still...life

The current lockdowns and life changes we have all had to make have demanded a complete reassessment of our priorities and life goals. What is our true purpose? do we even know what it is? We have had a great opportunity to do plenty of introspection and I have been no exception as I have to look at what really fires me up and drives my daily life, what makes me happy and how do I see my life going forward...it may seem obvious that I still love creating images and I see myself as primarily an image maker, creative photographer and...

When someone says "it's all just an illusion" whilst referring to the manifest world, what do they actually mean? In our waking state this physical realm seems so completely real that we build our whole lives around it. The duality we observe through the working of the "rational" mind appears to be just how things are and there is no real impulse or need to question this undeniable "reality".
