The show must go on

Empty spaces - what are we living for?
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score.
On and on!
Does anybody know what we are looking for?

What is the mysterious center of experience which we call "I"? What are all these problems of life and love, pain and death, and the question of whether existence has meaning or not? As I see it, everything is just vague hearsay. No one knows for sure what we are and what we are doing here. But who cares. Life goes without these answers.

As far as the search for truth is concerned, 98% of what we have heard is rubbish. The remaining 2% is garbage. Throw it all out and start thinking by yourself. Although we're lacking clear direction, we clearly sense that there is more to life than met the eye and that society as it is now, culture, religion, science, philosophy and psychology are missing the point.

The root of the awakening is the way in which we feel and conceive ourselves as persons, our sensation of being alive, of individual existence, identity.

Another hero - another mindless crime.
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime.
Hold the line!
Does anybody want to take it anymore?

We have this false and distorted sensation of our own sense of existence. We have the sensation that "I" is a person, the bunch of feeling and emotions, living inside of the physical body. We are inside the body and we look through our senses into an external world of people and things, making contact with them and having relationships - girlfriends, boyfriends, spouses, children, co-workers etc..

We are programmed to believe that "we came into this world" like this world existed before our birth. We say without thinking that our parents existed before we were born and they have seen us coming into being... bullshit! What this has to do with us? Did the world existed for us? Of course not. It is all hearsay. This belief gives us the feeling of being lonely as a temporary visitor on this planet.

We are not born into an existing world, in the moment of birth we create our world! 

We create our world and we live in our own world. Our world is not the common world of streets and buildings, borders and countries. That is just a stage. Our real world is inner psychological world of ideas, thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess i'm learning,
I must be warmer now.
I'll soon be turning, round the corner now.
Outside the dawn is breaking,
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free!

Every person is an expression of the whole world, a unique experience of the universe. This fact is not known and it is not experienced by people. In a book The Active Side of Infinity, Don Juan tells Castaneda that our Earth is being invaded a long time ago by creatures of condensed darkness, the so-called Flyers, which use us as food. Don Juan challenges Castaneda to reconcile our intelligence, demonstrated in so many achievements, with the stupidity of our systems of beliefs... the stupidity of our contradictory behavior.

Don Juan relates this blatant contradiction in human intelligence to an alien force from the universe at large that keeps us in prison. Don Juan said that human mind has been infiltrated by the alien intelligence:

We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so... 
They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary and egomaniacal. 

According to Don Juan, the predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind, a cheap model: economy strength, one size fits all mind. It is the foreign installation, which exists in you and in every other human being. The effect of this installation is seen in mental conditioning and brainwashing. Our mind has no concentration whatsoever.

Don Juan gives advise how to get rid of the foreign installation.

The only alternative left for mankind is discipline. Discipline is the only deterrent. But by discipline I don’t mean harsh routines. I don’t mean waking up every morning at five-thirty and throwing cold water on yourself until you’re blue. The discipline as the capacity to face with serenity odds that are not included in our expectations.

And a great saint Ranjit Maharaj tells us the same thing in a direct  and simple words...

"I" is illusion and all is illusion but to understand the illusion, illusion is needed. All is only beliefs and concepts of the mind. Don't be touched by anything.
Don't fear. Nothing will happen. The world is not going to change because it does not exist. Understanding should be changed nothing else. It all depends on your thoughts.
Everything is your choice, you are the power. The world is yours. Many, many troubles happen to you but don't worry for anything. So do everything but be out of it, nothing else. You take touch of everything and you make confusion.
By words you have become bound, and by words you can be free.
- Ranjit Maharaj

The Show must go on! Yeah,yeah!
Ooh! Inside my heart is breaking!
My make-up may be flaking...
But my smile, still, stays on!
