Filters are the energetic waves which lie in front of you as you. They can be emotional, psychological, physical in nature, or be something very different. The filters give you the view of Universe you are experiencing. So to peer through the filters, in order to expand awareness, it is advisable to understand what your filters are, not to dwell on them per se, but to understand what needs to be worked through. Love them, and then release them, for expanded awareness and the ability to more fully choose your illusion.
The illusion of physicality is strong. But it is surmountable.
I spent a few months in Denver at an AirBnB which turned into a longer term stay. Great space and great place in Denver, walking distance to shopping for the basics and to Wash Park. An interesting time. People do create their own realities, or their own illusions, based on the way they perceive themselves. Voids can be created, where whirlpools of energy keep people in the same thought paradigms. Going into a situation like that is quite a learning experience. Disruption is good. But the disruption has to create a path where the end result of that disruption does not make a situation worse.
Travels with Charley refers to John Steinbeck's book about his travels across America with his dog Charley. It was a great book, a book of great discovery. So I borrow it here to share my experiences....
The limit one has in how much of their illusion they can create is directly defined by what they believe their limits are.
