“An illusion is a static image, displaced in the stream of time, and for that reason is unreal.”
In this fast paced era of telecommunications and media messages, it is easy to fall sway to the subliminal patterning of mass minded marketing dynamics. With so much bombardment from external stimuli, it is important to distinguish the illusory from reality. Only an awareness and acceptance of the present moment can combat the illusory values of materialism, competition, and commercialism. While the ubiquity of foreign values may seem overwhelming, tools exist to penetrate the illusions of the technology age. One such tool is amethyst crystal, whose properties are related to the third eye chakra and penetrating illusions.
