Immortality, Fantasy and Reality

Immortality, Fantasy and Reality.

Do you realize that humans are elusive thinkers? We are unaware that we live in a hypnotic world. Our mental process is hypnotic. The words we think have a conditioned response in our subconscious minds. The meaning of the words is irrelevant, but they elicit genuine emotions.

The subconscious mind is analogous to a piano, and the words we use are the keys on the keyboard. They make a distinct sound. We play a tune on this keyboard twenty-four hours a day, and most people have no idea how their minds work.

We must use our brains to think and reason. We will not understand how our minds work unless we use our brains, and without this self-awareness, we will continue to live in a world of delusions. I’m going to try to explain how we delude ourselves here. True, reality is stranger than fiction. You are not required to believe what I say; however, please try to disprove it in your mind and see if what I write makes sense.

Do you realize that words have a strong hypnotic effect on our perceptions and thoughts? We use words to express our thoughts and feelings as well as to communicate. Words transport us through time and stimulate our imagination. We would be trapped in the present timeless reality if we did not have words. We have been using words to communicate and think since the beginning of time. The ego is the result of self-hypnosis. It cannot manifest in the conscious mind without the use of words.

It has to remain in the background without words. However, in order to survive in this harsh world of reality, the ego must constantly use the brain and its thinking process to appear in the conscious mind. Thus, thinking and speaking become ego-boosting tools and habits.

To comprehend how elusive our thought process is, we must first comprehend how words affect us. Remember that only the ego generates words; no one else does. For example, the word “soul” conjures up images of immortality, of something that never dies. It makes no difference whether such a thing exists or not. When we say the words’spiritual’ or’spiritual,’ we immediately imagine a world other than the one we see in front of us. The same thing happens when we use the words “heaven” and “hell.” They instantly create a world that exists outside of the present. All of these words give shape to our emotions. Every day, people use words created by an ego seeking immortality in their daily lives. It immediately creates a world of dreams and eternal life.

Consider the’sun’ and’moon’ as another example. They are real objects that create an instant mental image that is not based on any belief. Consider the terms “angel” and “Santa Claus.” They also produce an instant image, which most people do not regard as genuine. However, using words like ‘God, Allah, or Bhagwan’ can instill a strong spiritual reality in many people. Why? Because these words are associated with a belief system. The ego is always looking for immortality, never the truth. Using words like’resurrection’ and’reincarnation’ conjures up images of a world beyond the present with the comforting prospect of survival after death.

How can one not fall for such a lovely world of delusion? The more we think about it, the more real it seems to us. As a result, we create an entirely new dream world in our imagination to provide us with a sense of peace, permanence, and security.

Is there a difference between our current civilisation and previous ones? In all cultures, the beliefs and philosophies created by the ego provide a safe haven. They are evidence of our efforts to align our thinking with our actions. They try to make sense of our stressful, unhappy lives and existence. Sadly, people are willing to kill and die for their beliefs because they do not understand the mechanism of delusion and have no understanding of how their mind works.

Yes, all of the words we use elicit subconscious responses in our minds. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow have the same effect. When we use these words, we travel through time, from the past to the present and the future. However, there is no such thing as time.

When one looks at the world today, one can see how the ego uses the hypnotic power of words to survive and build in this harsh reality. Words have the power to make us happy or sad. We use words when we pray, and we use words when we sing. When we fall in love, words amplify our emotions. Music without words does not have the same impact as music with lyrics. It touches our hearts and emotions, causing us to cry.

We are immersed in a hypnotic world of words twenty-four hours a day. The radio, TV, cinema, newspapers, books, and so on all keep us in the hypnotic world of a time traveller—no wonder the ego does not want to and cannot stop thinking. It is afraid that if it stops thinking, it will vanish from the mind. Because the ego can only manifest in our conscious mind through words, continuous thinking becomes a habit, transforming the mind into an endlessly turbulent mode.

Thus, in its quest for immortality, the ego conjures up and creates a world of dreams out of the knowledge we gain from our surroundings. It would rather remain in a world of delusion than confront and comprehend reality. That is why academics are hesitant to study the ego because they are afraid of looking in the mirror and having to change their perceptions and direction. The medical profession must be joking when they claim to practice evidence-based medicine.

Do you recognize that we live in a hypnotic world after reading the preceding? How do we confront the timeless reality in front of us? Because you now understand that your thought process is hypnotic, simply become aware of the words and how you use them in your mind. Develop an awareness of your emotions and feelings. Recognize your tendency to express your thoughts and feelings verbally. Examine what happens when you temporarily stop speaking.

When you do this, do your thoughts and feelings have any substance? Learn to recognize your own hopes, fears, and desires. The ego wants to be in charge of everything. That is simply a bad habit. Make yourself aware. Bring your thoughts and feelings into balance. You can only do this if you are aware of what you are doing. Awareness frees you from hypnosis. Straighten out your perceptions. The sooner you understand how your mind works and how your ego operates, the sooner you will realize how eternal and peaceful the mind is.
