¿Have You Ever Felt Like Nothing Is Real?

Fernando L. Romanó (@trovadorandino) 8 years, 11 months ago

Well, recently I’ve been feeling that everything is like an illusion and I feel like life is passing by so quickly, I feel to slow for time, I feel that I need more time for everything.
So, I would be grateful if you could help me knowing “¿why?” And if something like this has happened to you, share your expiriences

Time is illusory scaffolding used for the mind to perceive space. Keep your awareness on the the unchanging present moment. Think of this, when a flower blooms open, there are signs to let you know its progress such as a fragrant smell, beautiful colors, ect. When your become more aware of yourself, certain qualities open up and are noticed by more than just you. :)

@trovadorandino, I have had long stretches of time that went by way too fast, but lately I’ve been filling my days with activity and adventure and that makes the day seem plenty long enough as well as well spent. Being outside a lot is a good place to start. Also, visiting new places.

@trovadorandino, I used to be hell worried about whether my existence was ‘real’ or ‘just an illusion’. I oscillated between ‘it is’ and ‘it is not’, and after all that settled down, I realized something. It doesn’t matter. Take a look around, what do you see? Let’s say you have plenty of evidence that your reality is an illusion. Does it change the things you’re seeing? I don’t think so. Don’t worry about your reality that much. Calling it names(illusion, simulation, etc) will just limit your experience, it is just our constant search for meaning in things that makes us wonder what is that we call ‘Reality’.

About the time factor, I don’t think there is something you can do to slow time down. What you can do is take this as an opportunity to start enjoying the moments in a better way. Keep in mind that these moments will pass by fast and there you have an opportunity to enjoy it.

everything is an illusion. it is all like a huge dream. a theater piece in which we have roles and dont know the lines. we are sacks of water covered by skin. wobbling around uselessly destroying this marvelous planet for no reason
i have little faith in reality as you would like to believe exists.
and im wondering seriously what this dream is all about……

all i can say is keep flowing with it,
and keep breathing, in and out…..

@trovadorandino, if you read my post in metaphysical “on the outside looking in, vise versa” you can under stand my situation more in depth. But some times i wonder if any of this is real. I wonder if i can actually die. If im alive. If i exist. If every one is a figment of my imagination. If im delusional and trapped some place but pretendinng im not. Am i in hell? Have i died? Why do things happen the way they do? The though train goes on forever. Some times i wonder if my mother is really my mother. Or maybe me who life is a lie…ive been lied to so much. And all these come from your question “is it real?”

Life is life. Don’t call it names. It will only limit the experience to the very definition of the word you call it.

If you ask people what they think about life being a illusion or not, you may hear stuff you don’t want to. If you want a tip, find out by yourself, and I am pretty sure you will stumble upon a beautiful meaningless experience which you will never put a label on it anymore.

@fercgomes, I echo this

Whether this experience that is life is real or not is doesnt really matter. Youre still having the exact same experience.

Just try to enjoy it. Be present. I know its hard, Im struggling with it.
I think its fun though trying to figuring out how it works.

@stonedragon21, Yeah I know. Sometimes I wish I didn’t even start this whole “exploring”.
But once it started its too late.

everything is magnificently in perfect working condition regardless of state of awareness. shit is genius. some people are sad, some are happy, but it works perfect. nothing isnt real.

@zachrie, dont be sorry about that. if you dont explore you are like a robot. or some kind of zombie. keep up your good humour with the thing and your eyes on the road!

How fun to be human… the way knowledge and logic work there’s no way to prove right now you’re not a computer simulation. I realized this when i was 13 or so and it felt like i left my body…scary ****

go outside and stare at the sun…that’ll remind you you’re real

When I’ve felt lost or that I’m a surreal situation. I remind myself…what sit’s comfortably in my heart and makes sense in my head is all the reality I need to know

Nothing is just as real as something. Remember life really can’t be explained, but more so understood in a sense. In order for nothing to exist, something must exist. TruthContest.com I would highly recommend checking out this site.
