Attraction to forms, external or internal, is afterall a craving for illusion. As all creation is out of and within nothing, it's existence has to be an illusion only.
The ultimate truth is the void, from and within which everything springs up and goes back, yet nothing actually takes form and dies out! It is like continuous disturbances in the filed of nothingness in eternal moment of Now by the self-aware nothingness as per the dreams/desires of its self-aware smaller parts of nothingness.
While watching a rock, we get an illusion of its solidity, color, smell etc. Yet when it is seen with eyes of powerful microscope all we will see is play of energy waves waiting for someone to observe them so that they can take the form desired by the observer.
When in dream, we feel the dream/astral world also to be so much real, yet on waking up we find it to be just another illusion.
The universe manifested in duality (+1-1=0), has every existence within this band of duality existing either on positive or negative side operating as a great orchestra playing out the music of life!
The one going on any degree towards positive pole or negative pole will soon be swinging to the opposite side. As a witness we can be a part of this play yet witnessing it with detachment. The one taking the middle path and playing as a witness is bound to realize the ultimate truth sooner or later.
All our beliefs, past experiences, desires and emotions help create the illusion that we call our reality. A witness in the eternal moment of Now will go beyond this illusion and find the ultimate reality. Can we know what it will be without being there?
