If you’ve got a ticket to Nirvana, why should you stick around ’till the curtain closes?
A reader observes that people are unreal, that suffering is inherent in life, and all he wants to do is get to that state we call Nirvana. He feels he could just dissolve into it. So why stay?
Once you’ve even tasted such a thing as non-existence (his term, not mine), why remain? Is it to help other people? Do good works? Goodness (gag). Doing good and helping people is a byproduct of your nature, not a goal or reason in itself. Besides, suffering here is endless. You help one and another takes their place. Isn’t that so? Who’s up for a Sisyphean Adventure? Anyone want a ticket for that ride?
So, how do we approach this duality of Real/Unreal and Existence/Nirvana? Let’s look.
Are you real? I know I am.
I have read your Article “Are people in your life figments of your imagination” and ask myself if reality itself is my dream and I am the dreamer. I do not perceive other people as myself like in a dream, but I perceive them not as real as well. Several times I bend reality and the past to my will further than I believed possible. I had love, extreme wealth and Music seems to be written for me for special moments.
Having only unreal people around me successfully questions my will to exist and that causes many problems, i.e. I now spend far too much money. That’s why I asked whether you were real or not.
I have been to Nirvana and know how it is to not exist. Basically I am looking for a reason to continue existing or I will completely dissolve the next time I go. How can I go on when there is nothing to go on for? I have had what I wanted for myself and now all that is left is doing good for others. What stops you from wanting to dissolve (considering all that suffering existing brings)?
I had been previously working on immortality, but now all I want is to reach Nirvana as fast as I can.
