I read today that there is a heated discussion in Ontario about COVID-19 measures. I laughed at those discussions. In general, I don't like masses, a lot of people expressing their opinions at one place, in particular, I don't like people at all. 

They care only about their families, mortgages, car payments and they have their BBQ parties. They are not into going to protest and fight for freedom, they don't want to spend their time and money for such things, well, they are saving it for the retirement. 

One thing alone is certain, that man's slavery grows and increases. Man is becoming a willing slave. He no longer needs chains. He begins to grow fond of his slavery, to be proud of it. And this is the most terrible thing that can happen to a man...

There is no compulsory, mechanical evolution. Evolution is the result of conscious struggle. The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness, and 'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously.

- Gurdjieff

People will never realize that life itself is only a vision, a dream. Nothing exists, all is a dream. Life, mankind, world, sun, moon, stars - all a dream, all without existence. Nothing exists except them. And they are but awareness of "I" thought, a useless thought, a homeless thought wondering the empty eternities.

Strange, indeed, that they do not see that universe is only a dream, vision, fiction! Strange, because look at their life, it is hysterically insane - like a dream.

They are not sincere, they believe in god, or they're really trying to. They really, really do. They're trying to believe that there is a god, who created them in his own image and likeness, loves them very much, and keeps a close eye on things. They're really trying to believe that, but I got to tell them, the longer they live, the more they look around, the more they realize, something is fucked up.

How could they believe in something so ridiculous like god?

They believed in god who could make good guys as easily as bad, yet he preferred to make a lot of bastards. They believed in god who could have made everyone of happy, yet he never made a single person happy. Finally, with divine apology, he invites this poor, abused slaves to worship him.

Religion is the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it.

Religion has actually convinced them that there's an invisible "something" living in the sky who watches everything they do, every minute of every day. And the invisible "something" has a special place for them if they don't follow him, the place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send them to live and suffer and burn and scream and cry forever and ever until the end of time.

But they say... He loves us!

Something is fuck up here.

Constant struggle to save money, pills for depression, drinking alone on their backyards, emotional pains, stress, worries, and finally old age and death. Something is definitely wrong. This is not a good work. If this is the best god can do for them, I am not impressed. This is the kind of shit you'd expect from an office bureaucrat with a bad attitude and not god.

Do you perceive that these things are all impossible except in a dream? Do you see that they are pure inanities, the silly creation of an imagination that is not conscious of its freaks. It is your dream my friend, you are maker of it.

There is no god, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven, no hell. Leave the fucking society alone, the common, masturbatory people, who the fuck cares for them... Pay attention to yourself. Stop all worries, everything is nothing. How can nothing touch you?

When you forget the world, the objects around you, when your stop worrying about your fears, when you feel just the presence of "I AM" sense, you feel bliss, peace and love.

The understanding of reality is the understanding of illusion... it is understanding that nothing is, nothing exists. The world is still here in front of you but it has no reality. That is what is called self-knowledge. It is realization that "I AM" sense is only reality and that the world is only illusion.

Man, you've got it all wrong,
there's no creator or creation here,
no gross and fine, no wind or fire,
no sun, moon, earth or water,
no word, no flesh, no faith,
no cause and effect,
not any thought of knowledge.
No God or devil.
No mother, father or son here.
If you understand now, you are master,
I am your follower.

Be strong and have fear of nothing and no one, for everything is nothing.

You need courage, the capability to accept that everything is nothing and the nothing can not touch you. Your mind must come to this understanding. Don't ask if you can achieve awakening, because you are already awaken. First of all, go out of the mind circle. The mind is nothing but your thoughts. Get rid of your identification with your thoughts.

Real happiness is inside you, and it can not be find outside yourself. In deep sleep you are happy. You forget the world. Therefore, happiness lies in the forgetting of the world. Leave the world as it is but understand that it is not.

Do whatever you want to do but be detached by understanding because whatever you perceive, and achieve is illusion. It does not exists except in your imagination, and your mind must accept that.

Stay in the world, play with it but know it is not true. Everything depends on your capability to accept this fact. Whatever happens in the world, it is only imagination, and in fact nothing ever happens, it is only a long dream. You should not be touched by passing appearances.
