Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

Delusion

At its core, delusion is self-centredness; likewise, self-centredness is by nature, delusional. Delusion is creating a world of my imagination that is all about me, my needs, my wants, my fears, my prejudices, my beliefs, my expectations, my sense of entitlement—and believing that this self-centred world I created is “reality”. I then use that self-centred version of reality to filter out experience of the real world. When I can see through the delusion of self-centredness, then I am awake.
