A system your ego creates for you, where you feel free and saintly and in harmony, so you believe that following your own pleasures and desires is always the right thing; and this at the same time makes you feel already in paradise, like you do not need to change, like you are a master of yourself.
And this ignorant world your ego creates is the world in which you live and in which you created truth, love, and God out of your own opinions and likes; therefore, in this system whatever brings you comfort–like eating whatever you please, doing whatever you want to your body and mind, watching whatever you want, listening to whatever you want, etc.–is God and truth and freedom for you.
So this is the perfect dictatorship where you have learned to love slavery, where you have become a slave without knowledge of it, and where all your desires no matter that they are believed, erroneously, by the asleep you, to lead you to love and happiness. And whatever unsettles this, whatever disturbs this illusion you have built for yourself, is mocked, ignored, and rejected by you.
But to be free, to be in love, to be happy, truly, lies outside of this; hence, mastering yourself is stepping outside of your own ego and doing the things that are good for your ascension and evolution–i.e., eating right and staying away from toxins, doing exercise, watching inspiring things, engaging in conversation which builds higher morals, reading factual things which can improve you, controlling your anger and your stress, etc. etc.
