I, smitten with reality and wary of my envious mind, with the intention of existing in harmony with myself, humanity, life, and the Earth, profess that:
1. No professions of truth shall be taken literally.
2. Reality defines the human mind—not the other way around.
3. We never change reality, but we sure affect its latency.
4. All belief is based on suspect reasoning.
5. Knowledge is a poor substitute for understanding.
6. Opinions are pointless (and never humble).
7. Concepts are fictional and shouldn't be mistaken for reality.
8. Reality is the provenance of thought.
9. The human mind can only recognize the truth, not govern it.
10. The actual truth is never equivocal.
11. Lies wouldn't exist but for believers.
12. Reality is incapable of illusion.
13. Reality is flawless.
14. Uniqueness is a shared condition.
15. Reality is unfalsifiable.
16. 'God' is a poor name for reality.
17. The suffering of reality is a privilege not to be squandered.
18. Reality is ultimately beneficent.
19. Enlightenment is a collective result.
20. Enlightenment is only attainable now.

A pair of useful words:
autocentric (mind): auto- self + -centric focused; favoring the individual self-generated mental model of reality; Innately autocentric, the human mind is prone to bias and misperception.
ontocentric (mind): onto- actual existence or being + -centric focused; favoring reality over the mental conception of it; An ontocentric inquiry soon resolved the paradox.
The following ideas, though seemingly counterintuitive, are actually counter-egoic—antithetical to mental authority—but once intuitively grasped may result in subtle but actual feelings of joy and serenity.
