"In the post-meditative experience become a child of illusion" is a slogan from the Tibetan mind training tradition. We engage the world as we experience it all the while realizing that reality is not as it seems to be.

This person's life philosophy
I want to call your attention to a post over on Democratic Underground called "Cards on the table..." that has moved me considerably. Here's how it gets started:
I am a liberal. No matter who is in charge at the moment.
I stand for the little guy. I stand for the underdog. I stand for the working person. I stand for the poor. I stand for the oppressed. I stand against war. I stand against torture. I stand against the rape of the lower classes to enrich the wealthy. I stand for my planet. Not my "country", my PLANET. I stand for love. I stand for joy. I stand for life. I stand for freedom. I stand for laughter. I stand for music. I stand for art. I stand for my friends. I stand for my family. I stand with other liberals.
If this means I have to stand against Obama when he is supporting war then so be it. If this means I have to stand against Obama when he is supporting torture then so be it. If this means I have to stand against Obama when he is supporting Wall Street then so be it.
I will stand with Obama when he acts like a liberal and I will stand against him when he doesn't.
