The only reality you will ever find is the reality of your Self, not the reality of the world, not the reality of the universe. It has no reality. As you begin to study, investigate, intelligently look at your own existence, you begin to see the world as an illusion. It’s an appearance. And as you unfold on the path of knowledge, you no longer take this world seriously. This doesn’t mean that you walk around not caring about anything, not being concerned, not giving a helpful hand to someone. You do not become sarcastic, or belligerent or cynical. You realize the world changes constantly. Therefore it cannot possibly be real. So how can you take the world seriously? Yet you also realize that if you can’t get rid of “I am the body” idea, or “I am the doer” idea, you have to sort of become a little serious in the world. It’s a paradox. You are not to take the world seriously, yet if you can’t get away from the body idea as being real, then you also have to see the world as real and take it seriously. You were brought up to take everything seriously, to have goals, ambitions. Where do these things lead you? Look at the precarious condition the world is in today. Man’s inhumanity to man is everywhere prevalent. Wars, these dastardly conditions have been going on since the beginning of time. Yet what do you have to do with these things? You didn’t come here to straighten out the world. You didn’t come here to make peace. You didn’t come here to teach people anything or to show anybody anything. You are here in order to wake up, to awaken, to awaken from the mortal dream. That’s all you’re here for. You’re not here for any other reason.
