The world can be so beautiful..

I beleive that reality isent real. Everything is temporary and pointless. Consequence and control are words of fiction.
But theres something beautiful and blissful about that. A complete lack of control. Existing for the sake of existance, able to leave whenever you want with no impact! Full choice. Do what you want!

Teachers of Zen allegedly used to have a technique for dealing with students who make claims like "reality isn't real." They would take a bamboo stick and tap the student on the head with the bamboo while asking the student to deny the bamboo stick.

Anyway, I agree with you that there's great beauty in our existence.

@ElwoodBlues maybe she means its temporary as all humans pass away one day

kinda like a hotel not a home
@Laddu OK., I hear you. But from my perspective, that means [i]we[/i] are the temporary ones.

When the Japanese zen guy Dogen was in China he was meditating in a monastery when the guy beside him slumped forward. The Master gave him a good wack with his stick and shouted out:- "How dare you sleep when seeking to drop body and mind!"

Dogen had a moment of deep insight.

How on earth can Reality be unreal?
