Our bodies are so cool. Sometimes they can seem primitive, like when we feel change and pain. They are the most basic stage of life – our door to freedom. Being primal is their job – to connect us to the simplicity of everyday life. Bodies are beautiful illusions that cover up the infinity of our bright, cosmic light. And that illusion can be tailored the way we want it. Your body is not you, but a projection of yourself, capable of interacting, indulging and stunning others with every breath that you take.

Are you living life or are you faking it?
Most people lose themselves in the idea of what they want. I see this happening in all areas of life, such as advertising, religion, music… It’s everywhere. Why? Because our mind is lazy, and would rather settle for a fake expression of what is, rather than putting effort into creating original stuff. An everyday example:
On the left we see Miley Cyrus lost in the idea of what a model looks like, and on the right we see a model. Both of them have great cheek bones, but one of them is fake. I think you can tell which one is who.
Selfies can seem quite a small example, but it’s exactly this mindset that also messes with religion. How many people get lost in the idea of God? In the example above, we see religion as an excuse to war (left) and a true expression of spirituality (right). My take is that if you understand God with your mind you haven’t found God at all. Struggle is opposite to spirituality.
So, stay true. You might trick a fool’s mind, but you won’t trick your soul – the only one you should be worried about pleasing. Faking is like taking a shortcut to a dead end. And let’s face it, why spend your time struggling to fake anything at all?
If you want to know if what you’re doing is true, and not fake, ask yourself one question: ‘Why?’. If there is no obvious answer to this, you’re faking it.
