If The World Is An "Illusion," Do Your Thoughts Even Exist?

Do you often find it difficult to function around “normal” people who are pursuing “normal” goals? Do you often feel as if you simply do not belong “here”? Do you often wonder if you’re “happy”? (or are you sometimes confused as to what the concept even means). Do surface conversations or small talk often cause you to suffocate? Do you have difficulty with conforming to the “rules” of intimate “loving” relationships? Do you sometimes find yourself interpreting the world as some kind of absurd anomaly that makes no sense? Do you often find yourself puzzled by the things you feel you must do? Does watching or reading the ‘serious’ news frequently make you laugh?

Do you find this blog to sometimes make sense?


Fear NOT silly finite “human”!

You are NOT ALONE…

These are merely signs of your growing desire to play infinitely in the EGO’S finite games of fulfillment. 

But the ego-self, that you’ve relied on to teach you what “you” and the "world" are all about, fights desperately to maintain your SERIOUS allegiance to all the things it demands as MEANINGFUL.

After all these years of independent “self-reliance” (sometimes to the point of desperation) do you really think “you” will give up without a fight?

And now, my friends, because you’ve worked so hard all these years, in your serious self-development, it seems a pity to finally see it ALL as a complete waste of time.

But pointlessness is obviously the final culmination of all your life's work.

All those years of education, all those career promotions, all those loving relationships, and here you are, still plugging away at extracting some sense of fulfillment, some consistent sense of “happiness.” Not to mention your years of diligent exercise, eating right, spiritual mediation, and just doing the “right thing.”

Yet, you never really seem any happier or less stressed. You never really seem to become anybody, but what YOU ARE.

And sometimes, in the wee small hours of the night, just before waking to start your “work day”…

…you consider just how absurd your existence really is.

Nothing has ever really changed and your disappointments have been mounting like a pile of nuts in a squirrel hole. Love eludes you and “happiness” is a fairy tale told by an idiot (and now, just look at the fooked up “economy,” threatening to dissolve all your hard work into nothing but a column of negative numbers on a piece of paper).

Have you had enough yet?

You can’t stop playing the world’s ego-games (because nobody can be an ego-self and NOT play ego-games). But you can learn to play them differently. You can learn to surrender self-fulfillment and discard your desire for the "right" outcomes and results. Because all that never really never mattered anyway.

Let’s face it, the ego-self (or package of beliefs you consider “you”) can never achieve fulfillment, simply because it is only a PART of your mind. Fulfillment is a delusion of the part that has lost contact with the whole. And isn’t that exactly what your world symbolizes? isn't that what you see when you look out your eyeballs?

The ego will desperately chase its dreams of fulfillment. It will pursue its “happiness.” It will never stop trying to find “love.”

But IT will never find what IT is looking for…simply because it can't.

It was NOT programmed to find, but only to seek and seek and seek, on and on and on, seemingly ad infinitum, until, after years of exhausted depletion, the very instrument it uses to measure what it seeks, up and dies on it. Oh boohoo!

Let it ALL go my friends. It simply does NOT matter. It wasn’t there UNTIL you starting seeking. Your seeking unloads it all. Your seeking merely perpetuates the very duality you continue to seek IN... and find nothing.

When you finally see clearly, you learn that not only is the world not there, but “you” are not there, nor are any of the thoughts you covet as meaningful, that fuels your seeking, is “there.”

But the cognitive abstraction you call your "self" will never let "you" go.

Nevertheless, a good way to accelerate clarity of this is to simply deny reality to the thoughts in your head. Your thoughts are as meaningless as the world you “think” you “see” (Yes, even the drivel you’re reading on this page…completely and utterly meaningless).

But woe to those who deny the reality of their own MINDS. You will, no doubt, have a rough time of things. That is, until the breakthrough occurs and you finally see the WHOLE shebang.

However, ego-self will mightily resist your being utterly meaningless. It cannot possibly see “you” as ONLY a dreamed up abstraction, because its very existence is contingent on the dream being “real.” The eyes of the body cannot help the “self” that demands the body define what IT is. Your goal has always been to see beyond what the body’s eyes show you, because what the eyes see is not “there,” although in your dream it sure seems as if you’re “looking” at something. That must no longer matter, because the body is as much a dream as the eyes and ears that seem to measure the “world” as REAL.

Some bright mind I read along time ago explained that, the moment you "forgot to laugh" the whole damn delusion took over and stupid things became meaningful.

IF everything that you are aware of is ONLY a dream, ALL must be included and nothing excluded. IF the world is ONLY a dream, your body is also a part of that and, hence, the self that believes it is a body is itself ONLY a dream. Your freedom depends on your seeing it as it really is and it really is…not “there.” (contemplate on the concepts "here" and "there" for awhile and see what comes up for you).

Sorry, but to accelerate clarity, you can no longer pick and choose what you want. And please, dump that fooking “spiritual” bullsheit. For chrisakes, all it ever did was perpetuate the need for the body to continue measuring duality and, thereby, make the whole delusion "real."

Thoughts that seek to represent and describe a dream world are as much a part of that dream as the images that seem to move around IN it. The dream is no less whole than the truth that you will awake to. Only difference is, the dream is NOT true, but ONLY a dream. Hahaa!

See ALL your dream in its expansive wholeness, so you are no longer victimized by the disparate and disconnected parts. Your thoughts about others are no more real than the images you see and claim as representing other minds. You are not “here,” nor are your thoughts, images, beliefs; nothing is “here,” because it is ONLY a dream.

The belief in “your” mind, as separate from the wholeness of the delusion, is as delusional as the belief in “other” separate minds. Believing that your mind is “the only mind” is no less delusional than believing in "other" minds and that all minds, including yours, are owned by the heads that seem to house them.

It's just not "there," dude.

Hence, your finite “spiritual” thoughts cannot save you. Go ahead and dump all that too.

Now you can be free to play infinitely in your world. Now you can remember to laugh.

What have you got to lose?

It’s only a fooking dream….

  1. I like you’re your blog a lot and I agree we largely live in a world of illusion. But what puzzles me is why certain properties of the dream seem so immutable. In an actual dream (or a dream within the dream if you prefer) those laws are mutable and you often find yourself flying or observe that your surroundings change from one second to the next, or if you try to read in the dream the words change as you read them, etc.

    But no matter how convinced I am that the world I perceive is merely a construct of my egotistic self, merely the discrimination between ‘self’ and the whole of the non-dualistic ball of wax, some things are immutable. Like the physical laws of the universe. It would help my believe in the concepts presented on this blog if those infinite players that have seen through the illusion of the dream could demonstrate that they no longer need to be concerned with the immutable laws of what we collectively perceive, it seems they can only ignore, and play in the infinite of non-material construction.

  2. "...if those infinite players that have seen through the illusion of the dream could demonstrate that they no longer need to be concerned with the immutable laws of what we collectively perceive..."

    Indeed! But then, this begs the question, would YOU believe it if YOU saw it? If they showed you what is possible, how frightened would you be? And later, how would the ego define it to only make it part of the dream?

    They are aware of possibilities we would not even consider. But since I am NOT an infinite player, I can only write about what I do see and what I see are people who respond to the world much differently than you or I.

    Sorry, but I cannot give much more than I am presently able to comprehend.

    But stay tuned!

    One that I know of is beginning to show me things...


  3. "They are aware of possibilities we would not even consider…..Sorry, but I cannot give much more than I am presently able to comprehend….One that I know of is beginning to show me things..."

    Hmm, sounds like magic, I am skeptical…but what else would I say. I doubt any ‘born’ into our condition will ever escape from our condition.

  4. Yes, that did sound like "magic."

    Alas, I'm poor at describing what I have yet to understand. But as I learn more, maybe I can describe better.

    Nevertheless, I won't stop trying...

    Glad you've enjoyed the blog!

  5. Lets all be looked upon as bodies of energy that have the ability to create or destroy.
    Now lets look at ourselves as bodies of energy that have nothing different about them apart from the ability to create and destroy.
    That is freedom of the mind.
