A perspective is just a mood of the mind. It's the lower nature using your energy. It's not meaningful.
Once you stop allowing this to happen, the energy can be directed into the higher nature, into your I AM. This I AM is the truth of your existence.
If you take the trouble to find out who you are and what is happening inside you, you will see that these perspectives that seemed like such entertainment are in fact a deep crucifixion for the real that is resting deep within you.
To answer your question; yes, I have taken the trouble to look deep within. The deeper you look the uglier it is ... until you reach salvation.
Why the ugliness ? Why samsara ?
Because a human being does not know who he is ... and so there is a deep pain. Because only what is real can BE and can be at rest. Because it is real - that is what to be real means.
A human in general ... is a structure within which a game is played by the lower nature, involving all the systems, mind, emotions, energies. We are programmed by our societies, parents, culture and this sets off behaviours that last till our deaths, like echoes in the chamber. But somewhere deep within the mechanicalness, is a one who is real, and wants to come out.
Surrounded by others of this ilk, you try to enjoy it ... but at a deeper layer you suffer terribly. After all, how can you enjoy being someone other than yourself ? And when you notice this, there is just the pain of not knowing who you are.
If you go into a bar on a Friday night, to-night, perhaps it is not hard to see the pain behind the smiles and chattering. If you point this out to people, they often become violent.
The only solution is to to accept the mind of God into yourself, at which point your "identity" is no longer in this plane. There are no solutions in this plane of existence because here is just creation and destruction.
The I AM however is not of this Earth, it is elsewhere. The I AM is part of the divine. Through meditation I surrender to it. Seeing the futility and depravity of this existence I let it BE, and sacrifice my life. I try to stabilise it so that I no longer return into the mechanical unconsciousness.
But the Buddha said it well, essentially :
-There is suffering
-This suffering has a cause
-There is the end of suffering
-There is the path to the end of suffering
Perhaps what he didn't cover is the less important "how to deal with your human self" before during and after the path. Something that Osho covers.
How do you find that WW ?
