Does the World Exists Outside the Mind?

54251_5b47Does our world exist only in our imaginations? Is it possible, we constructed our world from memories, desires and fears? Until we came into the knowledge of our mind and body, the world did not exist.

Several spiritual messengers contend, ‘before the world, the creator was.’ This was and still remains a plausible explanation to the existence of an infinite being.  Unfortunately, the explanation became lost in extreme definitions created by our imaginations.

Illusory stories of battles against good and evil, diminish the one-line explanation, and unjustly, presented more dramatic reasons. For instance, the warrior, born in a hostile world must battle against her personal imperfections and against her evil nemesis. The victorious prize for the warrior,  acceptance to the after-world, where she receives pleasures throughout eternity.  However, if defeated, she receives eternal imprisonment to the dark abyss controlled by her evil nemesis.

The manufactured narratives erects boundaries for the infinite being who finds herself in the world. Unfortunately, nothing could be farther from the truth; we were not born into the world, the world exists only in our minds.  The world cannot bound our existence.   To the contrary; we are the background for the world’s existence.

However, the acceptance of a lower consciousness, which display humans as actors, sadly bounded infinite beings into illusory bondage. We sadly wrote ourselves, a theatrical part in a television reality show, based on our past recollections, needs, and fears.  We enslaved ourselves in this world that does not exist.

Unbound the Infinite Spirit

**

We proceeded to create more television plots that resemble reality.  Dramas of pains, elation and difficulties, and soon we became trapped on the television set. The only relief comes when an true-identity experience occur, where our television shows 234851_c6f8cuts off, and we are without thoughts.

For example, in deep sleep where the world does not exist, we are in timeless space unaware of time. Only peace and stillness exist in this place. Some of us pray for this place so to remove our repetitive thinking.

Why do we feel this need to escape from our thoughts? Those thoughts are not real, they are induced pain-filled illusions. We feel helpless in the scary delusional world we created.  What can one do?

Our minds and bodies constructs the temporary world we see, cut it off, and it vanishes. Awaken from the movie scripts we have fabricated, and discover our infinite being.  We can achieve this spiritual link while being inside the world, surly, this message is not new. You have heard, ‘how to be in something but not of it,’ so unattached the consciousness from the drudgery of fiction.

If temporary, it is fiction, made up.

The Powerlessness of Religious/Spiritual Books

3076_bbc5The Tao Te Ching is powerless; also, the Bible, Koran, and all remaining religious/spiritual manuscripts. These works of art occasionally have influenced love and peace or death and annihilation to fellow humans throughout their conceptions.

The beliefs in Gods’ books as models to spiritual mannerism appear ambiguous and self-interpretable.

Our quest for infinite importance digests supernatural books for a glimpse into our eternity. The popular public forecast theorizes we are more than our physical composition. In addition, we also stand to inherit unlimited materialistic life prizes after death; compensation for obedience to our selected Gods’ books.

Who Created Who?

**

Nevertheless, I imagine no such agreement of Gods and humans preceded our arrival. Why would Gods write in human outlines to convey our assurances for what lies ahead, for the good and not so good? The premise suggests Gods of limitations and uncreative imaginations.

To determine our Godly actualization, Gods relied upon humans to explain their mystic procedures. Some teachings so surreptitious, we would need special humans with titles to read between the astute lines.187414_aaa8

Would infinite Gods behave in such manner? Could they not vision the difficulty this would cause humans? I contend with tentativeness, no such Gods exist from those books. Although, my apprehension is not one of indecisiveness in my judgment, but human alienation from my human relatives.

I am but a minority who assert stories in our Gods’ books possess their share of fiction. Even if the stories  evolved directly from the Gods’ mouths, the hollowness of humans tarnished their truthful significance.   Consequently, humans constructed a caste system of Godly interpretations and demanded our membership.

Weary to Lean an Ear

**

The peculiar viewpoint that Gods are in partnerships with human messengers creates an uncomfortable peril. I doubt humans, embedded with chronic mistakes, possess flawless supernatural intuitions.

However, the phenomena may exist, unfortunately, I do not possess a Gods’ book for its model to thrive.  Are there unexplainable incidents? Yes. Do I need humans to interpret those occurrences? No.

(If Gods exist), it rest well above the ego-driven mind.

The Dreaded, Body-Mind Divorce

397738362_4c68cb9e61A marriage with the unseen remains dubious. The body-mind entity, a determine opponent seeks a permanent connection.

Sadly, the forces of unreasonable desires, unobtainable happiness, and chronic worry; believes it owns me.

I blame only myself. I conditioned the beast with chronic lies of, “I Am This,” and “I Am in Control,” dialogs. The marriages to these falsities, both sad and distressing, currently obstruct my egotistical divorce. After years of professed devotional commitment, ego refuses to permit my exit without a fight.

**

“I Want Out”

Spiritual freedom from an egotistical marriage comes at a lofty price. My true nature is a foreign invader that met furious resistance to become my new mate. Sadly, in the beginning, I fought aside my ego; believing its lies that began in my youth.

The attachment to self-identity began at an early age and quickly flooded my thinking. Our family, society, and world, all shouted! “Who Are You?” Who AM I, and how do I insure my position in this world. I soon attracted my flirting ego. My quest for self-identity propelled a insatiable appetite of unreachable desires.  Ego and I married soon after my tenth birthday.48162_4faf

My infectious marriage erected a house of illusions. For example, some of my ego’s illusionist magic, (1) desires just out of touch, (2) happiness always fleeting, or (3) need just one more break and everything will be fine.

The cheating ego produces only unresolved past issues and hopes of better future. It flooded my mind with unobtainable requests relentlessly.  Remarkably it turned around and provided the anger for my dissatisfaction.  Cheating Bastard!

**

“Leave the Keys on the Dresser”

Possessed by a cyclical unsatisfied mind I proceed through life a married malcontent.  I did not recognize my true nature.   I begin to disguise my beast, at my height of delusion people wondered about my sanity.  I exhibited constant anger and stress.

Family and friends questioned who would appear, pseudo-happy brooding breast or Mr. Unrecognizable. So many identities required countless disguises, I lived in a marriage of lies for years.

My divorce from the egotistical mind is hard-hitting and undecided. However, I experience new conscious experiences often, which boost my faith. A prescription for divorce from ego rest not in text or advice. No one can help you with this process.

**

“How to Start Over”

You must free yourself.  The person, whom said, “I Do” must challenge the ego marriage. External supplements possess no value.  Praying, meditating or yoga are clever egotistical props.  A egotistical trick, wrapped inside of God, a old stale trick to induce attachment to an external object.  “You Are What You Seek!”

Stay in your heart, change your consciousness and the divorce will occur. Your natural being, needs no instructions, you will find truth, when you look for it.

“The Sin Remover”

690985_887e

“Do you feel anything? Nothing. Absolutely, Nothing!”

The Invisible Dragon, replying to a television evangelists.

**

Refresh the Spirit

Wash sin away with the water I was told. Several friends swear by the practice steadfastly insisting water removes the horrors of misdeeds. I got wet. A low audible mystic mantra a friend persisted wash away all dreadful transgressions. After several mind-numbing minutes, I forgot why I was mumbling, and in addition, the incoherent jargon frightened me.

Close your eyes and listen to the heart on a city park bench and sin vanish. After filling out the police report of my mugging, I tossed the practice. Read the Koran and Allah will take away sin, I received a full-cavity body search while flying to Cleveland. I am positive the airport official had a wedding ring on before he…oh God! I shudder to imagine where his ring..Agggh!

**

Sin No more!

Stop eating pork! There rest your trouble your filthy diet! I like goat. Can I eat goat? Yes what a foolish question my friend shouts back. God cleanse all things except pig. Trust me on this, it is complicated, God and pig have issues.251077_a18b

Give away all your position and live in a tent in the middle of the desert and follow us another friend requested. The first night several people became really ill after drinking some punch, so I called home for a plane ticket, another body search, ouch!

**

What are Friends for?

I have friends who suggest sin remedies. Over the years I tested some and contested others, all the while seeking “the fix it” to my soul. ‘

There remain more friends and sin remedies; the search for total sin annihilation my noble cause. Out there somewhere, a cure, I travel the world over looking for the elusive spell.

“The Sin Remover.”

Gods and Our Selfish Motives

433207_36c7I imagine we are all selfish for some acceptable reasons. My children garner my undivided loyalty protecting our communal relationship a reasonable cause.

As well, the relationship with my wife, I would not ransom her for the universe. And so, without wavering I refuse to compromise those relationships to secure the relationships of others. Am I alone in this predicament?

By the way, I demand total autonomy to follow my own spiritual intuition.  Freedom to be wrong, right, or insanely childish is a God-given right–would you not believe?

I want my God, my Way

**

I define my own existence.  I seldom desired following another person’s perceptions. Remarkably as a child I rebuked my Mother’s views on religion.  I steadfastly dismissed her demands to accept the formal practice of religion.  I wanted the freedom to create my own God, that is if a God needed to be created. A ravening freedom manic at conception; I did not want to be led.  Am I alone in this predicament?569396_5cde

Are we not ultimately coerced by family, culture, and tradition in selecting deities?  I proudly predict selections are self-interest rationales that suits personality, characteristics, and cultural norms more so than faith.

The Perfect Fit

**

We select Gods that best evoke our contentment. Our spiritual selections do not relinquish spiritual facts or unexplainable religious artifacts as proof of a deity. Not surprisingly, the Godly engagement, most likely occurred, while being guided by parents, prodded by friends or in your bedroom after a night of unprotected sex.

Some select Gods that resembles humans, statues, or silence space.   Ultimately, we select Gods who care about our well-being.  We desire a selfish God.  Do we not warrant those attractions? We desire deities, where if one does right, the deities does right by us. Did we not negotiate this deal for our obedience?   Are earthly happiness, acquisitions, and ever-lasting eternity our ill-gotten gains for keeping the faith?  I wonder Am I alone in this predicament?
