Truth is relative up to a point, that point being when we merge back into the Source, which is Ultimate Truth. Paradox rules in these matters, not logic or reason. Is the physical plane an illusion? Yes. Is it also real? Yes.
And each subsequent inner plane is more real than the slightly more material plane just "below" it. Whatever we experience is real, is our truth and is ultimately an illusion.

Wrong. When you factor in the millions of lives we've had and the karma we've accumulated, we are all getting exactly what we deserve, and in most cases exactly what we wanted. We reap what we have sown. And desires sown in previous lives are reaped in future lives. Also...before this life, we had a plan for it, and then the memory of that planning, and the desires we had is erased when we are born. So we wake up in this world and say "why"? Why am I sick? Why am I stuck with this relationship? Why can't I have the job I really want? Etc...
You are living the life you planned and wanted, and you create your future by what you desire in this life. So be careful what you wish for.

True. In the inner planes, we don't have "time" as we have it here. Time enables us to experience our karmas sequentially, go through them, put them behind us, and grow spiritually. The memory loss ensures growth. If we knew all the "answers" how could there be growth? We have the opportunity here to make right choices, to exercise free will, even though ultimately there is no "free will." It's all Divine Will.

Real love has nothing to do with our wants and desires, but is losing our SELF in the beloved. That's mystical love--no conditions, putting the beloved first always, rising above the self, the ego.
