Have you known That and by knowing you have known everything and without knowing you have not known anything.
Have you known That?
What is That?
That is yourself.
"Know Thyself", said the wise man from ancient Greece.
The wise man from the East said, "Awake, arise and realize your self".
We read in the scriptures, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free,".
Know the truth about yourself and the truth about yourself shall make you free from your false self.
Why should you know yourself?
Because the enlightened one's throughout the history of mankind said,
"An unexamined life is not worth living and has no value, examine yourself, know thyself".
How can you know yourself?
You can know yourself through the process of self-examination aka retrospection. Looking back and reviewing the content of your mind, examining, analyzing, understanding and becoming aware of -
Why you are thinking what you are thinking?
Why you are doing what you are doing?
Why you are saying what you are saying?
Why are you thinking one thing and saying something else?
Why you are behaving the way you are behaving?
Why you are believing what you are believing?
Why you are attracted to some people? Why you are attached to some people?
Why you hate some people?
Why you like some things?
Why you are attached to somethings? And why can't you let go of those things?
Why you hate some things?
What is thought?
How did you get stuck with the thoughts you borrowed from others?
What is the origin of thought?
What is time? How did you get stuck in time?
What is the origin of time?
Who are you?
Why are you here on this planet?
Where did you come from?
Where are you going to?
What is the meaning of life?
What is the purpose of life?
So, when are you going to start the long journey into yourself?
Do you know that it is the most important journey that you have to undertake in your life?
I am here to remind you that it is never too late to start the journey into yourself.
If you have already started the journey to know your self , I am there to guide you all the way toward the very end of your false self.
Remember, "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." ...
To know yourself is the ultimate fulfillment of your life.
Only intelligent people are guided to this teaching.
Only intelligent people are capable of knowing the truth about themselves.
Who are those intelligent people?
They are the one's who question everything.
They rebel against everything.
They have a great sense of humor.
They are open minded.
They are well learned and well informed.
The rest of the crowd allow themselves to be led by fanatics who are blinded by organized religion. The blind leading the blind. They live a worthless, miserable life with the hope of going to heaven and finally fall into a ditch or pyre. The not so intelligent people believe in this god or that god. Sometimes, they leave this god and go after that god. These fools claim that the god they believed in the past was not the real god, but the god they believe now is the real god. You see some fools leaving this guru and going after that guru. You may have heard them saying why this guru is better than the previous guru. They say why the previous guru was a fake and why the guru they are following now is the real guru. Little do they know that the greatest guru, the guru of all guru's is within!!!
Some fools become religious fanatics and this is what you hear them say:
- Our god is the only real god.
- Our holy book is the only holy book that has the truth.
- Our holy book can't be wrong.
- Our holy scriptures says kill nonbelievers, so we kill them.
- Our holy scriptures says blasphemers will go to hell, so let's send them to hell.
- We are willing to exert our worldview onto others via violence.
- You can spit at me, torture me, or kill me, I will not change my faith.
- Shit is happening to you because God is punishing you.
It took billions of years for the universe to create you.
You are unique. You are one of a kind.
Do you know that the atoms in your heart that pump blood to your brain came from stars that died in a supernova billions of years ago.
You are a glorious child of the universe and you are most beautifully, wonderfully and magnificently made by the laws of the universe.
There was no one like you in the history of mankind.
There will not be anyone like you in the future of mankind.
No one was better than you in the history of man.
You are no better than anyone in the past, present or future of mankind.
This is the mindset you need to start the journey into yourself.
You are intelligent and you want to know your self.
No matter what, you want to realize your self.
You are not a mediocre.
You are a fierce seeker.
You don't care if you live or die. But, you want to know if there is anything to be known. You want to know even if there is nothing to be known.
Who are the enlightened one's?
What did the enlightened one's say?
Why did the enlightened one's say what they said?
By asking you will understand, by understanding you will practice and by practice you will come to know yourself.
And by knowing yourself -

If you are not here, who care's about anyone, anything or nothing?
If you are not here, who is there to think of those holy people, holy books and holy places?
If you are not here, who is there to think of the observable universe?
if you are not here, who is there to think of the non-observable universe?
Do you know what I mean?
Do you see what I am saying?
You are the intelligent one, and yes, you can comprehend what I am eluding to.
If you are not here, then nothing matters. You are here, so everything matters. You don't have a choice but to deal with "this "and "that", everything and nothing and whatever the yadi, yadi, yada is.
Intelligent people know that gods and religions are created by humans based on fears and emotions, especially, the fear of death".
Most people believe in a god, gods or goddesses because:
- They want a father / mother figure to protect them for all kinds of mishaps in the world.
- It gives meaning and purpose to their lives.
- They get comfort from believing that death is not the end and their gods and goddesses will protect them after death.
- Their gods and goddesses make them feel like they are privileged, they are the chosen ones and they are VIP's in the world.
- Their gods and goddesses love them, respect them and take care of them in this life and in the after life.
A great philosopher thought that religion stems from the individual's experience of having been a helpless baby totally dependent on its parents. The infant sees its parents as all-powerful beings who show great love and satisfy all its needs. This experience is almost identical to the way human beings created gods and portray their relationship with their gods. Religion is a mass-delusion that reshaped reality to provide a certainty of happiness and protection from suffering.
I am not against humanity. I love humanity. I live for the betterment of all mankind. But I am against ridiculous religious belief systems and good for nothing rituals and superstitions which are detrimental to the development of human consciousness.
You are the intelligent one with the potential to become the enlightened one.
Knowing yourself is realization. Going beyond yourself is enlightenment. The enlightened one knows nothing. Nothing is not nothing. Nothing implies everything. You have heard them say, "There is one thing I know and that is, I know nothing."
You are the intelligent one and you should not take anything I say for granted. You will have to question everything I say and find out for yourself the truth, nothing but the truth, the absolute truth of who you are and what you are. Not only that, you must also know who you are not, what you are not and why you are not. Neti, neti, you are neither this nor that.
