I'm good with delusion for the most part. I recognize that most of what I do in life is simply to avoid being bored and essentially acts as a form of distraction and entertainment to keep me thinking about death dying and all the problems in the world. I'm probably better that way. Aikiweb is a big part of that too.
if there's nowhere to rest at the end

Ten days in this temple and my mind is reeling!….
If you come some other day and ask for me,
Better look in a fish stall, a sake shop, or a brothel……
The spirit of Zen is manifest in ways countless as the
sands of the Ganges.
