The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra – The World as Illusion

The ultimate learning in Buddhism is the understanding of Emptiness. What did Christ say ?

Christ said ” Give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, give to God the things that are God’s” and also “For those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance”. How to resolve such contradictions?

Jesus taught us that the world is an illusion. If material things are a dream, it makes sense to pay them no heed. The mind is pulled away from spiritual goals by mistaking money, possessions and status as real.

Separating illusion from reality doesn’t usually happen all at once. What we experience as reality changes in different stages of consciousness.
