Realize that this is all story, a play, an act in which you and everyone else are playing their part. Like a movie we become attached to, entrenched, engrossed, and entangled in the drama. The stage is a false reality, a dream, a matrix. So, how do we get on with what is real? How do we wake up? How do we realize the truth?
The stage of the world is as it is. The set is here and the drama plays on. When you realize this, you may also come to realize that you need none of it. None of the drama will be worthy of you. Then, you will free yourself from it, though the game continues on all around you.
“Do not and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no spoon… Then you will see it is not the spoon that bends. It is only yourself.” – Young “potential” to Neo in, The Matrix; https://youtu.be/uAXtO5dMqEI
To truly live is to be unattached to anything this worldly system offers. If you are able to observe the suggestions, the offerings being laid at your feet, begging for your attention, all the propaganda; and if you can recognize the potential prison for your soul, your mind, your body in these things, you have found Wisdom.
