People's world is so immersed in materiality that they consider ′′ real ′′ only what lies on the material level. Poor mortals, don't realize that, in the end, nothing can be less real,
closer to dream, more transient and fantastic than this world of material.
The higher the soul rises along the ladder of existence, the more real her experiences become, the further she descends towards matter, the more unreal her experiences become.
When the nature of earthly things is understood, they lose every grip from the human soul. When she understands the deceitful nature of the universe's phenomena and realizes that the spiritual world is the only real, then the bonds of material life relax and the soul begins the struggle against its limitations. The only reality is the Spirit that dwells within each of us.
