Zen

Q. I know that I create everything in my life, and that what I think and feel becomes my reality, but it seems that I still want and need drama in my life. I feel exhausted. What am I doing wrong?

A. The fact is that you are possessed with the illusion that you know it. If you were sure that everything in your life is created by you, you should know that not only your feeling exhausted but also the question ‘What am I doing wrong?’ is of your own creating. That is, if you really knew that you create everything in your life, you would not be challenged by the problem you have now since that is also part of the drama.

You are not aware of the fact that you are being deluded by illusions. Your question is not different from saying, “I know that I am on dry land, but please help me, I am drowning now.” This means that even though you say you know that you are on dry land, you are actually feeling exhausted by floundering in the water. The best way to escape the situation is to realise that you are really on dry land.

Try to realise what you are and what your reality is. If everything, including you, is drama just as you said, it should be under the control of the creator. If it is beyond your control, it is not a drama to you. How can an image of a drama on a screen be exhausted?
