How to Master the Cosmic Illusion

Everyday life, the time between sitting calmly on your cushion, is an important time for a meditator, in Tibetan Buddhism it is called the post meditation period and is seen as just as important as formal meditation, if not more important. After all the time spent on your cushion is only a fraction of the time you spend in every day life.

A powerful method for keeping an enlightened meditative composure throughout the day is to be mindful that everything experienced is dreamlike and illusory. Masters of illusions are people who can move through the world while staying detached and still keeping their compassion for all the dream-like characters that they meet.
