Shine On - You Crazy Diamond

The main reason for slavery is belief that inner (thoughts) and outside (world) events are true!

These are the first words of truth - not truth in quotation marks but truth in the real meaning of the word; truth which is not merely theoretical but truth that can be realized.

Everything, including the sense of “I” is fake. The world is but a show, glittering and empty. All is nothing. Desires leading you. All objects including your relation to mother, father, children, friends etc. are untrue. All relationships are ready to fool you. See your own meaninglessness and stay there. You need a real courage for that.

When you see for yourself THAT, you will collapse in fear and confusion but you will acquire the greatest virtue of this world... humility. Until that happens to you, changing your beliefs is all theoretical, irrelevant.

Everyone wants to be somebody, and no one wants to be a nobody. You are frustrated in your quest for significance. Present social system of elitism allows a select few to "succeed". For you, the life is just wanting. You can agree that humility is a nice quality in others, because you feel safe and comfortable around people who are humble. But when it comes to yourself, you may consider humility a hindrance to success and a recipe of failure.

Changing your beliefs has nothing to do with personal ambitions for worldly success. Real fulfillment in life is achieved only through knowing who you are. A clear sense of false identity cannot be seen from external point, it can only be seen on the foundation of humility based on a deep conviction of your own nothingness.

When you for a brief moment see that the "you", that, what you take yourself to be, is a fiction – when you actually recognize this, not just intellectually agree with it but actually see it – what happens? ....... nothing. Nothing actually happens.

The "you" full of fear and emotions and delusions remain firmly in place.

Well, not so firmly as before seeing it, but you still get caught up being fearful and selfish although you might understand the fiction of it. You may start recognizing your life as a drama, and that does bring some relief.

But, still, there is no explanation of what life really is. What you can say about a son of a barren woman? It’s a simple thing, really. It is the fiction, although so damned pervasive and persistent. It’s everywhere, in every concept and emotion and thought. You're easily carried away by daily events instead recognizing this fiction.

"Well," he said, opening the door to his car, "all you can do is put on an appearance of confidence sometimes. And after a while, others will start to believe it." He grabbed the door handle to pull it closed. "And then you die." Slam!!! - Neil Strauss

~ Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Pink Floyd ~

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
