You need only consult a dictionary to discover the difference.
But that reality of dream is exactly same with the reality when you wake up.
Yes, except that we call the one illusive because it evaded our comprehension. How is it then that we can equate reality with illusion, and to add insult to injury, say that the Buddha's view is one of illusion, one of apprehending a deception? Say that reality is illusion and you nullify the very basis of distinction. You might as well say up is down.
The errors in the above posts, from assuming the whole is merely the sum of its parts, to confounding words, down to spelling, are simply an example of carelessness in expression. Perhaps if we had to write out these posts by hand and mail them to each other it would be a different story. In any case, Wittgenstein said all our philosophical problems are rooted in language. Freedom of speech, greater more open communication, liberty in the arts - these are all signs of a liberal trend in our civilization which in its present phase often errs on unbridled perversion. We are obsessed with having our say. Wasn't Tenpa Rinpoche put in jail for the liberties given to him? Don't we all resent the unreasonable dictates of our bloated legal systems that say one thing and force us to do another? Doesn't what goes for art these days sometimes just make you want to laugh? We have so much liberty in expression we hardly think to listen, much less to ask.
The next time you suspect a non-sequitur, or a black cat walks past twice, maybe you should take your foot off the pedal and consider that the words might not be all there is to the meaning. Trying to simplify reality into a metaphor is a task best left undone.
