“I’m so happy, cuz today I found my friends, they’re in my head” – Nirvana(Lithium)

Specific people are not particularly important. They are only significant for what categories they represent, and these categories are projections, ‘in your head.’ If you can come to understand the categories of the people in your life, or the people you wish to be in your life, specifics become less and less important. WHY are the people in your life important? WHY do you want the people, or sorts of people, to be in your life, or play whatever role you would like them to play? Any answer you give could be re-stated through the usage of categories. There are MANY people in this world who could fit these basic categories that you are, in truth, looking for, but getting caught up in a specific manifestation of. Understand this.

Understand that it is certain CATEGORIES of personality, physical features, or experiences that you are looking for. Understand that these categories are not particularly unique. If you can truly see this, that itself can give you a whole new outlook on life. Now that you can see this, ask yourself if these categories are absolutely true in an objective sense, or if they are subjective, and based on your own viewpoint? Their subjectivity should become clear, if you are able to see beyond ego-lenses. This means that they are your own projections. You’ve created this classification system, that does not inherently exist in reality. You’re projecting these things onto your environment, and its inhabitants.

Do you notice how certain patterns repeat in your reality, how the same types of people continuously appear? This is because of your own categorization, that inevitably results in them. Change your classification system, change your reality. What do your friends, or anything or anyone that you enjoy in your reality, really represent? Categories. Where do these categories originate? Your mind. So relax. It’s all in your head. Your classifications will inevitably manifest in your reality, and through changing them, the manifestations that appear in your reality will change as well. “I’m so happy, cuz today I found my friends, they’re in my head.”
