For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Acting the true self or acting the fake

Where a Buddhist text may say "Be nice/act right and you are right with the universe" - that is in fact a false emulation. The truth is that; "in-line with the universe, you are nice/acting right". If you act then you are acting the fake as there is not even a real I who could act.

All false and bad action comes from an "I".

This has been my living meditation of the last few days - "I'm not 'doing it'".

Even still, we can not "do it" as the reality we see is always a little behind the true present. The notion of time and self are ideas so we should not then tie qualities to these.

Something that has become apparent is the dialectic between doing what is right for the world in its current state of unrest and non-action when in truth there is no such choice. One who is working for the betterment of the world is acting in tune with the way of the universe already. Right action is the action of the universe, the unrest in the world is of fake I's forcing against the current - this is why they have to try so hard and it is so apparent to us that what they do is wrong.

As always there is a fine line between non-acting and acting the fake but the pleasure in having it right is only there when you have it right. Self awareness is a key to loosing self awareness and regaining self(the universe)awareness.

It could be like surfing the edge of a silk thread, so easy to push it and not realise, easy to move away and not notice, but perfectly smooth when right.

The fake i will suffer as ever with "aaa i'm not in control" or "oh i will do as i like and reach out for the closest lazy act or vice of the ego" - both cases being bondage.

~~~

All we can do is feel in tune with it as to have a noisy mind that treats the past and future like things it did is a waste and undue pressure that clouds the present.

By being in tune with 'the way' your actions are with it and more powerful more real and the most basic 'act' more magical.

and also why they prefer humanity to too be acting the fake not the real.
