When a puppet on YouTube makes just about as much sense as any spiritual book I've read, or any mystical guru I've heard, that says a lot.
About what, I've got no idea. But whatever it is, The Truth According to Puppetji vaguely gestures in its direction, insofar as a puppet with arms stuck to rods is able.
No contest, really. Puppetji wins. And it won't cost you $29.95 to learn his take on The Truth.
You can have anything you want. But I ask, "Who is wanting?"
Who desires the need to want?
Who wants and desires the need to want to be needed and to desire to want to need something it only thinks it desires to want? [a rough transcription; Puppetji talks damn fast]
The truth of who you are is…nothing.
So getting the necklace, or the new car, or the house, or the hot crazy Tantric sexual relationship—all merely feeding the ego. And will not bring you happiness.
The desire to have more things and more stuff just perpetuates the grand illusion.
Therefore creating the desire to want more and more desire, and more and more things, and more and more stuff, ultimately leading to…bankruptcy.
And then more suffering. And more desire. And more and more desire not to suffer. Therefore creating more suffering.
Pretty good. For a puppet, or indeed for anybody, the little guy makes more than a little sense.
Puppetji would suggest to you that peace lies not in our past or future, for they are illusions created by the mind. Peace, true freedom and LOVE are not found by following our addictive patterns, for they are but temporary remedies for that which has no meaning and needs no cure.
You will never find that which you seek in any thing outside your temple...or someone else's temple, or Shirley Temple. YOU are that which you seek. Stop the search and remember this... You are not special, you are not important. You are LOVE and Love is all.
