A question about what is illusion
There is the illusion that we are separate beings. We are not.
There is the illusion of time. Time is not.
All of these illusions occur because of any attempts to fix the image. Life is a moving thing. Everything changes yet we are ever eternal. The difference between illusion or reality is in the ability to be transparent to every change and keep filled with the certainty of each moment along the way. Let's just say that the answer you received is not the gospel of what is really going on. We are given the concept of illusion so that we can recognize the changes and that these changes are in themselves malleable through the influence of mind.
In this sense your fears are illusions because a change of mind brings the rays of light which shine through the fears, dissipating them, making them transparent and leaving in their place the certainty of each moment. There and only there is the reality in the changing movement of the eternal as we reflect (enter vantage point upon vantage point) on these changes causing indeed the very changes we are reflecting upon.
That is why in an instant a person's life can undergo dramatic changes as your mind changes, adjusts and recognizes now the eternal being that is becoming. What exists is I AM in and through everything. When your identity rests there every thing is possible. Using this analogy the creator rests within the soul of the created. Every attempt to find the creator without is meaningless. It's like looking for your glasses when they are on top of your head. You take it with you wherever you go.

Free Your Mind
What is there to be free of? It is the reactions that are unconscious and upon us even before we realize it and then it becomes difficult to snap out of this negative pattern. What works best is a return to an active or non reactive mind set which moves forward at its own pace. It dismisses the feelings that cause these reactions and rises above them in order to accomplish its own momentum. Using that momentum is the main reason why higher thought always gets you out of the doldrums you may have the illusion of experiencing. When you can let go into higher thought this is where your mind starts to become free, because then you connect with the super consciousness or the highest mind and the ego mind identification with the separation reality is no longer engaged. The focus therefore becomes like unto the explorer who quest for new visions and adventures knows no bounds. Always even in the midst of discovery be ready to move into the next realm of the imagination so that you come let go and not be tied to any kind of pattern based awareness.
The point is not to be locked in by repetition of any form. The new pathways appear always. It is our perception which must always too, be on the lookout for these pathways to rise up into. Just as now there are things that cannot be understood, there is the subsequent strivings for which are the keys to each level or attainment mastered. Mastery then consists of alertness, awareness, fearlessness and an open intellect to allow for these pathways to become integrated into your being.
Be careful in unguarded moments of reverting to a reaction based mind set. This type of mind-set calls for tit for tat which takes you endlessly downward in a negative spiral. Let's deal with how to avoid these downward turns and what to do when you find yourself in the middle of a downward turn as your higher mind clicks in to tell you something is not going right here and that it is time to listen. No rationalizations are going to be of any help here since they are part of the problem of the reactive nature which is always rationalizing its actions. There is only one cold turkey type approach. That is forgiveness. It is the letting of the emotional impetus behind the reaction and then turning the mind like a big 14 wheeler around to face the other way. There are then three steps to follow.
1) The higher mind makes you aware that it is time for action and not reaction.
2) Apply forgiveness. Let go of the emotional impetus behind the reaction now beginning to unfold. Utilize the opposite emotion in its place not as a reaction but as a way to dissipate the negative feelings that have caused a way of thinking that you know cannot do you any good. All of these actions of forgiveness or letting go, or reversing the emotions are energies applied within. They cannot be directed without towards another person or situation because then this is simply another kind of reaction. The point here is to change your mind from passive to active.
3)Now you are ready to turn around your mind and set into motion actions that are directed from above. You will know that they are being driven by the one when your actions are not towards another but inwardly focused to bring forth revelations and understandings that can help you grow your awareness. None of us are immune from reacting. It is in the recognition of our reactions that we can find a way out of this pattern of hiding ourselves from ourselves. Move in from among the clouds and part their curtain with the sureness of grace and the perfection of your straight ahead approach.
Practicing the active awareness:
Use words of power that actualize your will. Be active in the present moment. Use every affirmation that you can think of and then keep on thinking of more. Remember turning your mind around is difficult at first because of the resistance factor built in by the negative momentum that had previously been built up. Watch for sudden turns which may distract you from your efforts. Keep tuned to the positive momentum coursing along now as a result of your efforts. Soon there will be breakthroughs and they will occur throughout this process as the turning becomes more pronounced and then your efforts begin to acquire a sureness all their own. The initial frantic pace is reduced because you realize that you are finally on the right course and that it is taking you where you want to go and not what your reactions would have directed you. Bless yourself from within. That is to apply the energy of self to the self in opening up further the awareness to move on its own level accord.
What is moving on the inside is what you will see. It is all in anticipation of the flow and learning how to deflect the inertia into areas of promotion
I move within everything out of the sense of the completion of my purpose.
All around me are those good thoughts coming from the genesis of higher awareness always taking form within the thought patterns I listen to in each and every moment.
I fill myself with understanding each day by making every connection. Some more profound than others.
I meet resistance through dissipation flowing through and around softly and gently never disturbing the onward flow.
I learn much about will and the eternal sense of being that I am.
Will it is the primary focus never to be undertaken without purpose.
It is only with the slightest touch that I strum the chords of Will.
I make everything not only easy for myself but set in motion that awareness which returns abundance to me in each moment.
I move forward with the momentum I have gained and remember in each moment to resist the reactions which take me back into the flow of negativity

Over a Long Running Stream
Over a long running stream the night fell swiftly amidst the closing leaves on the forest floor. Softly padding along he felt the darkness seep into his paws giving him the power of stealth along with a heightened awareness of things seen and unseen.
Movement through time and space
In order to rise up beyond the inertia of lower energy fields, active awareness is encouraged. The active awareness is encouraged in order to direct your attention to the building of and maintenance of cascading levels of enfoldment. Attention is thereby directed to opening up the mind for the inflow of higher thoughts combined with their counterparts in form. Instead of being insinuated by this inertia, start an upward flow through lifting up your consciousness to the unknown. The still point is the place of contact within.
It truly is another form that you are working with which explains the changes you are going through. It is the process of and the aspect of opening the will to describe what the world is around you. Yes it is life as energy but a conscious energy filled with your awareness. Watch therefore for every subtle change. While in this world retain your inner dimension. The concentration you've learned all along will come in most handy now. Within that inner dimension are the worlds of form into which you inject yourself.
Keep moving especially within the perspective of using your active awareness. There is no other consideration other than that which has been internally derived. All that I am is everything that is come to be. By defining the self awareness unity can blossom. The seeker then no longer chases after shadows but instructs in every way the reality of being, the advancement of perfections, the limitless wonders of imagination let fly. This does not happen by chance but in a clearly directed manner. Once the illusion of time is removed, the distances no longer are those of millenia but of mere seconds and sometimes instantaneous.

It does all go together. It is one perception for one world. Yes it really is about the transformation of this world into the next and so on and so on. I only have the power to change my mind and its perception. Like it is said to be looking through a clear pane of glass.
First make the connection with all life, with everything around not seeking to block anything but rather to encompass everything with your newly designed or intended vision. This includes your immediate world and the enfolding world around you. Into every molecule let your vision pass through and into. In this way you can be said to be connected in omniscience. Proceed in this way everywhere and at all the time. Be in this mind with everyone in every way. There can be nothing between you and your holiness. All matter is permeated with this holiness. It is your vision that changes and brings about your awareness of the matter around you. It isn't how anyone else views their world but is directly related to your own vision taking place from moment to moment. In order to see my world as loving and giving I must look through loving and giving eyes. In order to experience in my world the opportunities I would like to experience, the lens of opportunity is what I must look through. Instead of waiting for the abundance of the world to come my way, I embody that abundance and send it into my world as a blessing. Oh what a subtle change of mind it is. It is the key to overflowing.

What comes upon me now is the certainty of this very moment. It is a certainty born of the elevation of Will. Will is the intention carried forth into action first as thinking then as being.
The openings that occur as a result of this direction occur in the most surprising of places. The best bet is to go with the moment and let it become that which you are seeking. What you are calling for or intending is also by like means calling for or having the intention of becoming one with you.
What becomes important then is not so much what you know but it is what you re willing to let go of and how quickly you can move from realm to realm in the pursuit of being.
