What constitutes an illusion? The first thought that comes to many people is magic. Magicians are masters of illusion. They can make us think that something has disappeared or that something is there that really isn’t. What else is like an illusion? Life has many things that can be illusory in nature. The key is learning to distinguish between real and fake, and also understanding other people so we can get along rather than fall for the illusion of rumor and gossip. Today we have a story about illusion from Joel Ben Izzy and we have a couple other stories from Anne rutherford and Bob Reiser.
