The following pages are written mainly for those people wondering who we are, what we're doing here and how do we make our lives better. I've tried to write down some of the things I've looked at that have ended up making my life better.
All I was looking for when I started this was to find ways to make my life in society tolerable.
I guess the first thing I looked at was that life might be best defined as everything that is. This got me moving out of mistaking little life situations as life. Little situations like relationships with people, my relationship with society and so on. It also got me moving away from what I thought of as "My Life". My life became my relationship with life, not some little event taking place within another little event.
What will happen when we adopt this "life as everything that is" concept is our world gets bigger, roomier, less confined and restricted. This isn't something that might happen. When we see ourselves as part of something bigger, events become less of an issue. The problem with really seeing life this way is the same problem we have with changes in general. Once we've accepted something it's very hard to rid ourselves of it.
This how to chapter and all the pages written of my experiences all deal with moving from an accepted reality to a different reality.
The other thing I ran into when I started dealing with myself was my brain. This shouldn't come as a surprise since everything I've come to accept here on earth has been filtered by the brain. Things get filtered, accepted or rejected, values get forms, things get known, once known they become thoughts and possibly identities... more on this throughout...
