When you hear the world described as Maya, or illusion, remember the intention is not to disregard, or devalue the world of phenomena.
The intention is simply to point to that which you really are.
Regarding the world, it is inseparable from the Absolute, an expression of God. It is not an accident.
However, don’t over identify with the form of any object or phenomena, remember what it is in the deeper sense, literally an energetic expression of All-That-Is.
