Living in  a material world

We must understand the system that we live in. Almost everything around us from the material point of view is a fake need created by those who want to enslave and take advantage of others. Only when we try to understand it, we can get rid of the illusory reality, and that is part of the awakening process. The best part is that when we start asking this question we are on the verge of breaking through and awake from the dream that has become a nightmare. Our needs are so basic in the physical world that if we look around 90% of the stuff we accumulate is useless. Every single commercial was tested and perfected for years to entertain the eye and create a fake “perfect” world. Everyone is rich, happy and funny in all those commercials and that makes us want to be like them, to have that pair of $600 pants or that fabulous purse that cost $3000, or that car and so on. Our mind is being played to the extent that we start to chase all of those without questioning and making sense. More than that, all the amnesiacs around us are confirming our thoughts, and we want even more. Our poor souls are crying out loud, but we refuse to listen.
What do we need to be happy? It is whatever our minds tell us. We must go back to the time when we have controlled the mind and not the other way around. Our basic needs to be happy is shelter and food; everything else will come naturally. If we want to see new places, we will, if we’re going to enjoy the life we will because we do not need the latest car model, the latest TV model or the latest anything — most of those we do not need at all. Let’s try to stop watching TV for a day or a week, and we will see we did not lose anything.
On the contrary, we have gained more time for ourselves and clarity of our thoughts. Media these days is clearly a channel that interferes with the Source and makes us zombies on our own planet. Well, we can continue for so long with logical and well known ideas, but it is time to put them in practice, and everyone can start with her/himself. That is the trick that will fix the world.
Please give a chance to my book “Fulfillment” if you want to hear more, because I put all that came to me in there at the time of writing. I am not trying to sell my book here and if you really want it I will be more than happy to distribute free copies. That is the way we should share the ideas and help promoting true values to the world.
