The world, as we perceive it, is not real
A famous quote from Ramana Maharshi is “the world is not real, the Self alone is Real”. Isira explores how maybe a more useful expression of this is “the world AS WE PERCEIVE IT is not real, the Self (Pure Awareness) alone is Real”. This recognises that Pure Awareness is the only constant, unchanging ‘reality’. Everything else we experience is while on one level ‘real’ it is in ‘reality’ highly subjective based on our perceptions!
