We all have things, people and beliefs that define our position and keep us floating in this illusion. All these reference points are just anchors into this self-created illusion of our minds. Throughout our lives we are proven that all these reference points are not so important and in fact might be just our fear creating them as we are holding tight to a securing rope while being in a high ground.
All these fake ideas are challenged by life and this is the reason why we experience mostly misery, because we are enforcing, creating and holding onto these fake props in this ephemeral existence while experiencing this human body. If we are aware enough and stop this frenzy of continuously defining the existence, analyzing and interpreting it, we would suddenly realize that we are just pure existence, as a tiny little particle unbound by anything, free in the infinity of the Void. But that may scare us, because we are so used to being tied up to some secure place, a rock, a building, a person, something that would feed us the illusion of safety. Forget about safety and you’ll experience the Self, that true Higher Being that you are and always been.
The need for safety comes from fear, comes from the conviction that we are in danger, comes from the ignorance of not knowing who and what we truly are, hence not trusting life fully. You should know that this is a game and all those concepts, ideas and beliefs are part of the game program to keep you ignorant, to keep you enslaved, to continuously feed it with your fears, insecurities, desires and continuously wasting your energy trying to fix and control things and people that aren’t fixable neither controllable.
Wake up and start dropping everything that is so familiar, that gives you security, drop the idea of being a man or a woman and misogyny will vanish, feminism will vanish,.. Forget the color of your skin and there can be no racism. Let go of the desire to control and everything will be always as it should,.. Perfect!
Do you see it? It’s not that we become knowledgeable and get rid of the ignorance by accumulating information, but by getting rid of all the information that we were storing and relying our reality upon. This is the thing no one wants to say, because it’s not easy to understand from a complex, logically and analytically inclined person. Drop all points of reference and ideas and the result will be the Ultimate knowledge dawning on your Being.
From my observation I have noticed that it is very hard for people to let go of things that they believe that define who they are, a doctor (as an example) is not ready to accept its ignorance, because this is the “virus” that academic knowledge is planting into us, the belief that we know, which is the attribute of the very ignorant human.
When true knowledge is born within we are suddenly realizing how ignorant we are (still) by still lacking the full image of everything and by realizing how different reality is, compared with what we were assuming and projecting that it was. Even when that inner knowledge is born inside, it is not enough for us to decide that we are now knowledgeable.
So to summarize: the true spiritual knowledge will be humbling us down; on the other hand the academic, dry and bookish knowledge is just feeding the ego and empowering the mind more and more until the moment of the rigidity reaches its pinnacle and that being will get to a point of no return in this lifetime, hence fast degradation of the physical body takes place culminating with the demise of the person.
Imagine your existence in the middle of a canvas, with all those chords and safety ropes, all those needles pinning it into the center of that canvas as a captured insect pinned for the amusement and study of a biology student. You are there on that canvas almost unable to move because of all those things securing that position. As soon as you start cutting all that unnecessary things away, the movement of the being will slowly slowly enhance, until full freedom is achieved by removing the last chords and pins and realizing their obsolescence. The fake point in the middle of the canvas, that was imagined and created by the ego will disappear along with the canvas itself and the whole limited image about self and the surroundings are vanishing, knowing that we are not in a box or on a canvas, but we are in the Infinite Body of the Absolute, free to roam everywhere, free to explore the individual, limited experience in the world, but unbounded by it and with the full knowledge of being One with everything.
By cutting everything that you are not, you discover slowly what you are truly, and the separation starts vanishing, because there has never been anything other than Yourself existing out there.
