(+) Pretending is neither bad or good

You can pretend to be someone, who believes in god and you can also pretend to be someone, who does not believe in god. It does not make a difference, because what you pretend you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You can pretend to be a person, who see a cup as half full or half empty. It is the same amount you see, but how this amount is interpreted depends on the person you pretend to be.

When you are fighting with your weight for example, and you experience to be sad and frustrated, make sure to pretend, that you are a person, who has weight problems, as that cancel out the problem as real, and so it does not affect you to deal with it, as if it is real!

Feeling bad is also to play a game. You can pretend to feel happy instead, if you choose so.

If there are specific characteristics of others you do not like, you have chosen to pretend being a person who does not like these characteristics. Should that turns out to be troublesome, you can instead choose to pretend being a person, who likes these characteristics.

Nobody pretends being a person, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to pretend something. In other words, pretending to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is just like everything else in such a world make-believe. But since what you pretend to be, you are not, this belief undoes itself and therefore the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This cannot be known as a person, because a person is not real. That is why being a person is pretended.

In the moments before death it can be almost impossible – or entirely impossible – to pretend being a person or any other things, as you need a fully functioning brain to do this. Yet having pretended to be a person until this moment is a big help when the body is about to stop breathing, because it is easy to leave an illusion behind.

When you have nothing to live up to you are free to pretend being a person, who lives up to the expectations of the world.

There is no need to search for that which is you, because it is not in the world where you believe to be. Just like you are not in a game, that you are playing. Consequently all that you can find there is what you are not. And this is exactly what you find, when pretending to be a person in a world of duality.

In a role-play you pretend to be a person, that is not there. Likewise you pretend to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, who is not there.

If you are red-haired, you cannot choose to be blond instead. But you can choose, what kind of red-haired person, you want to pretend that you are – just like you can dress up a red-haired doll in different ways to change its personality.

You can choose to love the person you pretend to be or not. It is your own fabrication, so if you do not love it, why not pretend to be another person. As the world is in the eye of the beholder, it is all make-believe and therefore up to you, what person you pretend to be.

For sure you know how to pretend to be a person in a make-believe world. Think about when you are on a dating site or social media, play a game like Super Mario or do role-play – or think about playing air guitar.

Pretending is neither bad or good. It is just the way you can appear to be someone  in a make-believe world.
