Everything, including yourself, is fake

In article, Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World, published by Waking Times, it is said that our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing. What the author has missed is the very important fake item... "I am" is fake, "You are" is fake.

It is not so difficult to define freedom. Freedom is an abstract term and it is related to bondage. If there is slavery then there is freedom. Indeed, the basic restrain in this world is your psychological state for a feeling of identity, personality, "me". Slavery is the feeling of the self. The feeling of yourself is the bondage. And the freedom is freedom of "yourself".

Interesting. When you know this can you be instantly free? Can you stop this imagination of yourself at once, and not go on always being free? Yes you can. To be free moment by moment is the only way out of this dreaming misery. Perception always takes place only in the present. Clearing of confusion can be done and must be done every single moment.

This is done by being aware in your relationship to yourself and another. Be aware what you are in your relationship to your spouse, child, boss, neighbor or to your car, house...

Society by itself is nonexistent. Society is what you, in your relationship, have created. It is the outward projection of your own inward thoughts - it is "yourself".

Do whatever you want to do in your life but be detached by understanding because whatever you're doing is an illusion. Things, events, people do not exist except in your imagination. It is impossible to perceive the truth, you can only see the false as the false, that is all that you can do.

According to a well-known theory in quantum physics, things exist in accordance to whether there is an observer or not. New mind-blowing experiment confirms that reality doesn’t exist if you are not looking at it. It basically suggests that world is a kind of illusion and exists only when you are active participant. Numerous quantum experiments were conducted in the past and showed that this indeed might be the case.

You are part of the illusion of time and space. Time is also an illusion. It is an illusion created by movements of your thoughts. The events - A causes B causes C is also just a very convincing illusion. The reality that you are experiencing is by no means an “objective reality” as you presume. In fact, it is more like a virtual reality.

In this illusion, going to be awake invariably implies the desire to attain something - and that is what you want. You follow teachers - if not that of a person, then of a book, of a teaching - because you want a result which will be satisfactory, which will give you security.

Ideas, imagination, hopes... are not truth. Truth is related to circumstances, from moment to moment. Truth is not a static thing. When you can go beyond your mind - which is the "me", which is the thoughts, which is the time, which has continuity - only there is a state of truth, everything else is fake.
