This is one of the most profound moments in the history of movies. The movie “Fight Club” will teach you about the society and modern lifestyle more than any other movie. I recommend this movie for everyone. I’m not really a Tyler Durden. I will never hurt my body intentionally. I rip apart the ego,not the body. But I share a lot of Philosophy with Mr. Tyler Durden.
Descartes was a fool to say “I think; therefor I am”. Instead, I say “I think I am; therefor I am”. It means you are who you perceive yourself to be. This will also give you the answer for “what makes you suffer?” You cling onto various things like your job, your car, your money, your man/girl. This creates bonds between you and other things that you have no control over. You can only be your god. You can only conquer yourself. When you cling to these things such as money, the changes in them affects you and breaks you. You’ll start depending on these things instead of depending on yourself.
When you give up everything you are only left with yourself and yourself is what you think it is. Thinking differently will customize your very existence. If you want happiness; you are happiness itself. You are the all singing all dancing joyful essence of the world when you think you are. In deep Buddhist teachings, nirvana is the samsara itself. You call it samsara when you f@<k things up. There is no base for misery or happiness. It’s your own delusion and you can delude whatever you want.
You are free to do anything from the very beginning. You are just violated by the society to think differently and so you are what you think of you as. Happiness, freedom, suffering, fear, confidence…….. All these things are just states of mind. After giving up everything in your life you can mind your own state of mind. There is only one theory of everything and that is causality. There are no rules. Only causality. You cause yourself to be whatever it is.
Just go and take over by not being affected by anything. Then you’ll be the all singing all dancing crap of the world when you think you are. You’ll be freedom itself when you think you are. For all your life you were chasing excuses to be felt in certain ways. Now you may know how to delude yourself into the things you like being felt and this is the ultimate extension of it. If you want more, you can try transcending feelings and emotions which would be one hell of a task.
You don’t become a certain person step by step. You just simply be. Your state of mind is who you are. Along with your mind you constantly change who you are. It doesn’t even take a wink to be intoxicated in happiness. Just see yourself as the freedom and happiness. This perception is your reality.Don’t try to enjoy life. There is no such thing to call a life. Be the enjoyment itself and know yourself to be.
