Death is the Way!
"What?? Are you crazy?!" That's what a lot of people is thinking. Actually, I am not crazy, and please
do not even think about picking me up to therapy because I know exactly what I am talking about. How do people live in modern society? They live by attachment. All attachment is from the ego. Society values the ego. Attachment lead human beings to separation. One of the reasons why separation exist is because of labels. My uncle was talking to me about voting before the election and he asked: "Are you thinking about voting?" The first things that come in mind is nope. Then he was disappointed and tried to make feel guilty for my choice all because I am an American Citizen as if there is a way an "American" is supposed to act. Just like people have the right to vote, I also have the right to not vote. To die is to transcend the American, Haitian, Chinese, Canadian, or any kind of damn culture!
Another kind of attachment is the way people see love. I am in the questioning phase to whether or not I should have a girlfriend. Living with my family for many years, I can see how stressful it can be being a member. You have to live to their expectations. If you do not, they will yell at you, call you names and they
might even call you a disappointment. When your family love you, they will love you because of what you are doing but they will never love you for who you are. It is like I am in some sort of clan. It is because of clan human beings are so separated. Because many clans are created, racism will always exist. Clans are never at Zen because they cling so much in the past; therefore, they are never present. To me, they look nothing like walking corpses. The only to not become a zombie is to transcend the concept of 'clan'; so you have to die!
Religion! Oh my God! Religion is one of the worst attachment I have seen in years. What I see is that every sage like Jesus Christ, Buddha or Lao Tzu teaches the same thing: to get rid of the ego. Religions are doing the exact opposite: they are enhancing your ego. They deluding themselves by believing that their ego is the Way; in fact it is not true. I wonder if the Christians have read the Bible attentively. Even Jesus said: "Those who believed in me will do great works, and even greater works than I have done.." He is already telling you to not worship him but to go beyond him! Buddhists seem to be close to each other but the only thing is they worship Buddha, which is against what Buddha wishes. Basically religion see life as worshiping someone or something therefore they are attached. If you try to wake these people up, they will do nothing but argue back to you because they have been conditioned into a certain mold that they become walking corpses as I said. They are constantly competing because they became stoned. They are stoned because each religion think they have won so called Holly War! Haha.
As I described in these paragraphs, I described some of the mess society has created. There are probably more mess than what I just wrote about. You cannot describe truth because anything said or written will always be a partial truth to what the reality is. Truth can only be lived by dying. When you die, you are in silence. That is what I call true living.
