Meditation is the way. Through meditation we gradually learn how to recognize the difference between projection and reception. The mind projects illusions. The consciousness receives inspiration. The mind creates fantasies, meanings, interpretations, etc. The consciousness receives inspiration, insight, visions of reality. Superficially, these seem the same to us, because we are so asleep. Yet with experience one begins to learn how to tell the difference between them. That is known through intuition, a power of the heart.
"Do not worry; cultivate the habit of being happy." - Samael Aun Weor
