Reflecting Sign From Up Above

“Reflecting Sign From Up Above”

Human living lives against nature and severely hurting the basis of living beings, even more than their own DNA, without seeing harmful effect but instead, they are pleased with what they’ve done encouraging and expediting the development of digital innovation extensively.

I would like everyone to imagine standing in the air about 50 meters above the ground looking around in every areas, cities, and countries. Looking from the bird eye view enables us to see the delusions which are madly happening in this world in terms of how internet and entertainment are, and also how people strive to grab opportunities in business. The ways of politics, beauty, economy, and sports world in which famed athletes are treated like gods and the way each person is living. By looking down, we will probably see strong chain-like current binding each person tightly with complex connection of the internet wave. The sparkling and shimmering lights on earth when seen from the sky may seem spectacular, but when seeing through the mind, it will realize that these are lights of delusion so powerful in tying tremendous amounts of beings to be repeatedly drowned into illusions.

Human beings are trapped into a deep quagmire of delusions developing into a quagmire of emotions. Awoken minds will notice this while the careless ones would fall into such a path without thinking to step out to find an escaping path. This entire world is nothing more than an overlapping of a hypothetical creation, one after the other which have been built then later developed until the nature reveals the outer shell of this hypothetical truth of what mankind has done to this world.

Try stepping back from delusions and always ask questions; what are we doing? And the world that we are about to jump in or have been attracted to any involvements one way or another, what are these things leading us to? When you get the answer, return to the world within the mind to find the world of reality about oneself, then release the bindings little by little, one at a time, at least.

When it’s time to be jumping in again, be involved as one who knows the world well, be involved but not by becoming as one, but being comprehensive without being attached to it.

Try stepping back from delusions and always ask questions; what are we doing?
