more statements of the obvious

the core of the delusion (or dream) is not the perception of differences, but the assumption that those differences are owned by selves.

the delusion involves constant effort on the part of these imagined selves to somehow change their perceptions in order to obtain some state of perfection or happiness or meaning and thereby validate, once and for all, the belief in this existence in the self.

instead of trying to change perceptions, investigate the assumption that there is a self to own perception.

there is no self. there is nothing at the center of this need to change perception. there is nothing at the center of the belief that you are rooted in delusion or dream. there is no person at the center of experience.

the dream IS the delusion that this me exists at all.

Make the lie big,
make it simple,
keep saying it,
and eventually they will believe it.

Why are you unhappy?
Because 99.9 per cent
Of everything you think,
And of everything you do,
Is for yourself —
And there isn't one.

To write something and leave it behind us,
It is but a dream.
When we awake we know There is not even anyone to read it.
