What is life?!

Question from the Internet:

“What is the one problem of life that you wish can be permanently eliminated for good?”

The single greatest problem of life is that we do not know what life is, we do not know how to live.

We are all closed into our own, limited and distorted “Plato’s Caves”, thinking we live a real life while in truth we are dreaming an illusory existence projected, organized by our inherently egocentric and subjective consciousness, perception.

We are all locked into the Matrix we built for ourselves. And most of us — even if we knew how to escape this Matrix — would choose to remain in it, as it is ‘ours”, this is what we “know” we are used to. Moreover escaping this instinctive, egotistic, subjective Matrix would require to start living, existing for the sake of others, to sense, perceive reality through the desires and viewpoints of others while we give up everything our own mind and emotions give us.

But real life is something much higher, qualitatively much greater than what we call life right now. real life is what we can experience, sense through selfless, altruistic, unconditionally serving, loving Human connections when a new circulation of energy, communication of experiences, emotional impressions start flowing between us.

Real life is what we perceive through an unprecedented collective intellect, consciousness we build together and we can all access.

So we have a choice, we can stay within the Matrix, continuing this flat, aimless, limited, and temporary existence, or we can learn how “be born” into true life between us.
