how to navigate reality

The Key to Navigating Reality is Letting Go

Understanding that navigating reality is not something that can be done.

Trial And Error

You already are navigating the universe, but there is no way to do so in a manner more optimal than your current method of trial and error.

This is because the concept of doing so presumes that there exists some way to exist in a universe without being an integral part of it.

A kind of ‘ghost in the machine’ if you will.

This is of course not possible, as you are a part of the universe. You cannot be separated from it.

The nature of your existence dictates that you will always use trial and error to navigate reality.

As such, there is no way to be aware of the universe in a manner that somehow exceeds what you currently are doing.

There’s nothing but that – trial and error.

There is no secret to navigating reality because that’s how it works.

Understand that this is a dream.

Just like you are dreaming of your life, this entire world around you and everything within it is all just a dream.

There is no such thing as “1” or “0”.

All the numbers that we see and count are arbitrary symbols we invented because there was nothing else to do at the time.

The same goes for every other symbol in our language; from letters to punctuation marks! , even words themselves.

Words are only symbols created by humans out of need.

In fact, every symbol and every concept we have in our minds is just another way of representing something that can’t be truly represented.

You might say that love is a universal language, but it isn’t. Love doesn’t exist outside the mind; it’s simply a chemical reaction between two individuals.

Now, here is the question that you need to ask yourself: if this world is a dream, what’s real?

The answer to that question varies from person to person. For some people, there might be nothing beyond reality.

For others, there might be something in the beyond.

The afterlife is a concept that doesn’t make any sense to me; it’s simply an idea that someone came up with when they were afraid of dying.

It’s like religion – one man’s religion is another man’s poison.

As for me, I believe that beyond reality exists the ultimate truth.

But it’s not something we can reach by our own efforts; it will reveal itself to us when we’re ready.

And how do you know when you’re ready?

Well, if you’re asking me about this, then I’d say that the most important thing is to be free of all attachments.

Only once we are detached from everything else will reality reveal itself to us.
