We are all puppets, we are all toys.

If you think you’re not, you are clearly wrong or you wouldn’t be bothering reading this.

Puppets think the world they’re living in is real. Puppets don’t realize that they are actually nothing but toys somebody plays with.

There’s nothing wrong with being a toy or a puppet. That is in the end the only reason we are walking around here.

It’s only when you start realizing what our societies and cultures are really about, that you see the futility of it all.

If you think humanity as a whole made progress these last thousands of years, again you’re wrong.

The people responsible for our technological and social advancement these last millennia couldn’t fill a football stadium. What does that say for the rest of us? People are gullible and they are taught to think like puppets, thus becoming the toys of the system.

System itself hasn’t changed…there are masters, there are slaves, there are puppeteers, there are toys….

More than that, in order to perform our toys role, we are fed with “values”, with “principles”…aim for Prada and Gucci, diamonds and gold, expensive big cars, rare food and so on…we are keen to perform the perfect successful living role, to wear the best fitting mask in the society…

All these things make as much sense as watching TV and going to the circus… there is no sense. There’s only experience with or without a lesson to learn from it. And most people go over the same lessons hundreds of times, because they’re stupid, but again, nothing wrong with that. Stupid just means not knowing all there is to know.

But we can be the master behind our masked toy life. We are asleep, we are blind, but we can wake up and throw away our masks.

OK, life will still be a play that does not allow testing. But let’s write the script by ourselves. Let’s sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no applause.

Also keep in mind that it’s not the length but the excellence of the acting that matters.

And while you play, do not take life too seriously–you will never get out of it alive.
