The Secrets of Existence

Picasso's Museum in Malaga, Spain

My friends, here I am going to reveal to you the great secrets of life, of existence. I'm not asking you to believe me. See it for yourself...

You're living life with a mistaken identity!!!

You believe that you're body with the mind, an entity with unique personality. You erroneously believe that you are born in an existing world where you have been moving around acting by your own will.

That is not a fact. 

You need a lot of energy to understand this secret I just reveal to you. It is the greatest secret of existence.

The goal of your birth

Try to take advantage of your birth. If you make a small effort of understanding Who are you?, that will change your entire life.

The birth is not for doing just household and worldly duties engaged in mechanically repetitive activities. One day you will surely die, what will remain then? Just another wasted life in an endless number of births.

Think of why you were born, why are you here.

The purpose of birth is to obtain ultimate bliss by realizing your own Self. Instead, you involve yourself in various things, you waste this priceless human body.

You, for yourself, must discover Truth in order to obtain the ultimate peace. This is called the goal of human being.

I urge you to find out who are you and to behave accordingly. You are all pervading awareness without quality, without shape and you are not entangled in worldly life at all. Realize your Self and be what you are.

Identification with body and mind

Your sense of "I" does not reside in any particular part of your physical body. Your physical body is a mass of flesh, bones and blood, it is a collective assembly of parts such as hands, nose, liver etc. All of these parts you call "mine" and the body is considered as "my body".

However, "I" sense is not in the body neither as tenant nor as its owner. The sense of ownership over a body is IDENTIFICATION with the body. It is accepted because it is taken for granted, never investigated.

Once you have accepted, the identification with the physical body creates birth and death and life's passions: greed, desires, hatred, cravings and pride (self-importance) which are natural qualities of bodily expressions.

Identification with the physical body is mentality - the state of mind or conviction, understanding that "I" possess the body, that "I" is related to the physical body.

In truth the physical body is driven by emotions. Whatever emotions put forth is carried out by physical body. 

Your entire knowledge of this world is based on comparison, "something is like this" or "something is like that", it is a knowledge of contradictory thoughts.

The world

This world is like a dream, and it in this dream-like world whatever is considered to be good or bad, merit or sin or anything in the realm of morality, is of no consequence in the process of awakening to the Self.

The whole humanity has become entangled in illusion from birth, and lives in bondage. 

You have to understand by careful investigation that material objects are only temporary appearance and you have to become convinced that objects, comforts, attachment cannot really provide true happiness, then apparent reality of the world automatically fades away. The false nature of material objects must be understood.

Because of transient nature of things, the fear of dissolution is inevitable. You are overpowered by the fear of death and you constantly strive to see that something is not taken from you. You take every precaution to save your money, try hard to stop aging and struggle to keep your social status and authority. 

Only self-knowledge continues after death and it should be known why you're living. The self-knowledge makes you fearlessness, of being free from self-imposed fears.

"I" sense

The secret of the existence is that "I" sense is just that - the sense. 

The awakening is to break the identification with body and mind. Once you understand that particular thing is not yours you become indifferent about that thing.

Understand that body-mind is not "yours" and whatever kind of properties your body may posses will not affect you. Keep the physical body in mint condition, treat it as a tool or a vehicle, but understand what really is.

Separate "I am" sense from body, emotions and thoughts. It is only a thought that binds "I" as a possession of body and that thought is to be broken first.

Desires, fears, love, hate... you think it is "you". You get stuck talking to yourself, explaining, hoping but life has no explanations to give. It is an empty, meaningless flow of events that just go on and on.

Whatever happens has little or no importance. You are born and you live, I mean: you sleep, eat, shit, fuck, work and work and work more until you die. 

Be aware of your mortality!

If you know the exact date of your death your life would be quite different. You're still young and healthy so you're not thinking of your mortality. You cope with the life by focusing on the things more directly in front of you. And your world is as it is.

What would happen, though, if the secrecy surrounding your death was taken away? What if you are born with the knowledge of the exact date and the way of your end? While this is, of course, impossible, it's an interesting hypothetical scenario with the great influence on you as an individual and your life in general.

No matter where you are in the world, your day-to-day life would fundamentally change as a result of knowing when and how you were due to die. Your life's only purpose would be a question of how to spend your limited time on this Earth. I wonder why this is not a case now.

My dear friends, the real secret of happy life is not giving a shit about anything or anyone!

This society drill into your head, day and night - people who made it! Made what? Maybe they become rich. So what? They are still or even more frightened and confused, they are puppets like the rest of this modern society. What does it mean, "They made it"? Having a lot of money, a big house and an expensive car have nothing to do with being a success. Do you call that making it?

What "success" really means?

Answer for yourself, I just want to tell you that you are being cheated all your life, living in the world of false beliefs, false preconceptions, having the personality based on nothing but imagination.

You give a shit and that's why you are unhappy, stressed and depressed. You create, project, maintain your own image of reality.

Have you seen them? Articles, books and internet pages about how to get rich, how to change your habits, how to change yourself from a looser (as you are now) and become a winner (something in near or no so near future). Those articles and books are designed to give you a bad feeling about yourself. Nothing else!

Take this truth about life. Don't complicate simple words. You are pushed to believe that you have to succeed in whatever you do, you follow ridiculous ideals which you will never attain. You follow lies in the name of truth, and display enormous ignorance in the name of knowledge.

There is a Blue Universe on other side

I'm not telling you to meditate, pray or chant. I'm not concerned if you do yoga or not. I'm not trying to purify your soul, move you to 5th dimension or get you happy. I'm not trying to save you. Save you from what? From yourself? 

After all these years of dedicated and honest spiritual search for the answer of "who am I?", after reading tons of spiritual literature and practicing meditation, I had an expectation that heavens will somehow open up with bliss and love, carrying me up into celestial glory. My expectation never materialized.

In these years, I had a lot of unusual spiritual experiences. I had literally broke my mind couple times, but at one point in 2008, I had a period of clarity with no thoughts in my mind. I did not grasped any truth, there were no explanations, it was just simple clarity. When there was no feeling of "I" or "me" sometimes I saw a blue universe with white planets in it...

Experiences come and go, I am not attaching any importance to them, I take the spiritual experiences just like any other, the passing show. I am after clearly discovering, without any doubt, that "self" does not exists. And to behave without individuality.

I have stopped seeking anything because there is nothing to be found. Now I just do ashtanga yoga and try to be humble and aware in interaction with others. That's all.

The enlightenment is not written in the script of daily life, nor is it writable at all. All that happens in life to us is to exhaust us of our personal self, to break up our pride.

So live life without self-concerns. You must be brave to lead this kind of life otherwise you'll remain in the herd finding a comfort in the company of other deluded souls.
