Not realizing that the whole world was an illusion and that everything is created by your own thoughts. All propaganda traps people who are unaware that they create their own life and experiences. The world has no power, only you do. Life is what you create it to be, not what others, your government or the world says it is. You are free to create whatever kind of life you want regardless of circumstances or conditions. There is a power within you that can create anything. Once I knew this, everything suddenly changed forever.
