To be in the world but not of it

When the body and the personality are used as instruments for pretending to be someone in a world defined by time and space, that which is you is not there, because what you pretend to be you are not. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Appearing to be someone living in a capsule of time and space, you do not have the power to change the events that seem to happening inside it. But you have the power to choose how to perceive them, so if you choose a light and happy perception or not is up to you.

Not believing to be someone in the world, you instead pretend to be there. What and where you pretend to be has no power of its own but is powered by that which makes it possible to pretend something that is not real.

Where you pretend to be you are not
Choosing a light perception you do not feel the limitations of the capsule to be real, and so it easier pretending to be there instead of believing to be there. Yet we cannot appear to be in a world defined by time and space without pretending to have a body and a personality to govern it.

My hands, my legs, my eyes and so on are tools, that my personality use to navigate in the world. But it does not identify with these tool and do not care much, if some of them have to be replaced along the way.

When you do not believe to be someone specific, the personality can easily change and for example appear to be humble, if that is the way to obtain a loan in a bank, or to be angry if that seems to work better. It is just different attitudes, and not that which is you. The personality is a tool, that can be used in many ways. Unfortunately it is mostly used to make you appear, as if you are someone very special and real.

If this is what you want, you will hold onto the specific thoughts, feelings and behaviors, that you think will make you more important or loved and hide those that seem to belittle you, so the resulting image of you appears to be someone insignificant. This can be compared to playing a video game and only tell your friends of the heroic things you accomplished in it.

But if you do not care about being great or someone at all, the personality is not seen as a tool for promoting a specific image of you as if it is real but for pretending to be in a world encapsulated by time and space, though that which is you is not there, because it is not different from the formlessness of that which is one.
