A Curious Puzzle.

Do you have a favorite Masturbation Fantasy, or a Day-Dream, or BedTime Digesis that you throw yourself into as you drift off to sleep?
Do you ever find yourself desiring, more than anything else, To leave this world, and live in that Improbable Land of Nod?

The Bible Says : ‘Ask & Ye shall Receive.’
The Krishna’s believe that you can achieve any desired thing by simply reciting ’Nom Yo Ho Ren Gay Kio’ Over & Over again, Every Waking moment.
In The Matrix; Neo could do anything within The Matrix, So long as he ‘Really’ Believed that he was in The Matrix.
Ordinarily; Logically; You First Believe something, Believe it for Good Sound Reasons, And then; If it’s True, You Can Know It—
But in The Matrix; Neo & Mobius Knew they were in The Matrix,
But only Neo really believed it.

i Believe that i Know that this world is Fake.
There are things about this World, Our Reality, that are just Impossible.
There are many, many deeply suspicious things, like The Tides, or Vision, Consciousness, All sorts of things that Should Be, But Aren’t;
And The Paradox of Fundimental Particles.
But there are Other Things that are even more impossible.
Things that Prove that This World Can’t be Real.

It must have been Created by Some External Intelligence,
And while Not at all Necessary;
This Intelligence should be able to fulfill Any Desirous Thing that Residents of This World would Request.

The Question is; How?

Christians & Other Milquetoast Religions have suggested that by Doing Good, One will be suitably Rewarded. But to my way of thinking; Any Rewards that are Either Promised or Tacitly granted for Doing Good, completely defeats The Functionality or Sincerity of Goodness.
One must always do good for The Sake of Goodness & for No Other Reason.

If there is some way to Communicate to The Creator(s of this reality,
And request a change of Venue;
What is it?

i further believe that this is possible;
As there are ‘Stories’ or ‘Anecdotes’ of Saints & Unsuspecting Pedestrians that have been granted extraordinary powers, visions, visitations, artifacts or Knowledge that could only have delivered by Agents that exist at Tangental Angles to Any Line of Sight that The Pine Cones of This World are Capable of Drawing upon.

In all such stories;
The Common Denominator of Being Granted such Endowments is always;
Not Wanting It.

The Saint never wants to Levitate or Cure The Sick or Walk on Water,
They just find themselves, Watching themselves, Levitating, Curing The Sick or Walking on Water, and they routinely report that they are horrified by this turn of events.

Upon Reflection; They may concede that it is good to Cure The Sick, and Submissively request ‘Jesus’ to allow them to Cure Another Retched Soul from time to time, But each time; They are filled with Wonder & Dread at allowing such Powers to be poured through them.

This is similar to another quandary that i have long puzzled over;
How can i bring myself to Believe something that i have no good reason for Believing?
And now; This; How can i Not Want something that i very much desire?

Is This The Root of All Spiritual Knowledge?

It has been suggested that A Butterfly does not fly,
It floats on The Wind.

A Baby Bird is sure that it can’t fly,
And finds itself pushed from The Nest by it’s siblings or Mother,
Only to find, As it Flutters to The Ground in Panic, That it is flying.

No fish swims, They just exist in The Medium of Water,
Flowing along their own path of determinism.

Lao Tzu said to Follow The Dao.
But how does one, Not follow The Dao?

Many Creative People insist that they are most creative when they least desire to be Creative; While others insist that every creative work is nothing by arduous labor.

To be a really good typist, you have to forget about typing.
To Ride a Bicycle; You can’t think about riding a bicycle.

My Grandiose Wish is return to The Garden of Eden & Express every feather of Disdain for The Tree of Knowledge.
Is this what The Ancient Jewish Scholars ( Moses ) were telling us;
Knowledge will bring nothing of any value,
To be truly happy and receive everything we desire,
We must Truly Not Want It.

[ Is ] This is what The Garden of Eden is all About. ( ? )

If this Story has any Usefulness to it at all ( ! ? )
Then is its substance that Gawd -Wanted- Adam & Eve to Betray him and Eat of The Tree of Knowledge? Would Gawd have been very disappointed in Humanimals if they were content to live in The Garden of Eden forever ?
Would Gawd have shunted That world away to some corner of The Universe and Created another World with more Impudent Shaven Apes?
Which Version are We ?

It is Another of my deeply heretical beliefs that only atheists will be allowed into Heaven. This assumes that The Gawds want dynamic personalities with sufficient force of will and beliefs of fundimental notions of Goodness, to turn away from edicts that promise Eternal Damnation.

But The Garden of Eden Model Contradicts this.

How can it be Reconciled that The Ξ.6 Controllers want Vigorous, Spunky & Passionate Souls to Occupy Heaven; But are willing to Grant The Meekest Empty Minded Zen Buddhists All of Their Earthly Desires?

Raymond Smullyan in his Book _The Tao is Silent_;
Suggested that A Successful Person may become Successful, And Accomplish Great Things, By Not Wanting Them. Such a person would not strive for success, but allow success to be inflicted upon them, by simply doing all The things that they enjoyed doing, without really working on them.

Practicing is doing something over & over,
But what if you enjoyed doing something over & over,
and never considered it The Onerous burden of Practicing?

But all this still assumes that it is possible to Not Follow The Dao.
Although many things may looked terribly forced, That they happen at all must mean that The Universe meant it to happen all along.

Only Possible Things are Possible.
Everything that Happens, Could Not have Not Happened.

As easily as a Egg falls from a Chicken,
Sir Edmund Hillary Climbed to The Top of Mt. Everest.
