This blog post says everything and more that I would like to say right now , and I really couldn't put it better than this:-
OVERPOPULATION TODAY!: HEARTY SEASONAL SALUTATIONS!: "We take this opportunity to wish our countless readers a very happy holiday season! May all the usual family quarrels be just little one... Wishing you clarity, instead. And now the social criticism for which this Blog is becoming famous...."

'Facts Are Sacred.' Oh, Really?

Then may the facts be with you!

The Assumption of Identity

Lacking a genuine identity we have to assume one (i.e., take it up, put it on). Such is education— from day one we learn what to assume. Because each must assume something. One cannot legally be nothing! This educated sense is the human assumption, which we put on each day. In fact, we have to assume our identity each moment, and only through this constant repetition does it become that perhaps all-too-familiar sense of 'ourself.'

Occasionally, the assumption can lapse, and it's strange how completely lost one can feel without it. It could even result in a panic attack. Not to mention complete unexcelled awakening.

Back To The Future

To put it another way:-

Preoccupation (that is, plans and worries) about the future involves a huge amount of thought. The fact is, though, that however hard we try to anticipate the moment, the future NEVER ARRIVES. We remain always in the same place, the place of consciousness.

Knowledge Is Ignorance

And vise versa.

What!? Ignorance is knowledge?!?

Well look at it this way—once you have a piece of knowledge, you are equipped to ignore; once you don't know, you are equipped to look, to find out, to study. But if you are full of knowledge, why should you bother about anything? You know it all. You know where you're going, what you are doing, who you are and where you're at.

A person going about his business, full of the knowledge of all the things he is going to do, is an ignorant person. Knowledge is like a cocoon. To be full of knowledge is to ignore. And you have to ask: does Truth need knowledge? That about wraps it up.

The Future

There is NO future. The future is completely illusory. We never get there. We never, EVER get there! There is no THERE. That's why we can't get there.
