Most prefer to keep the veil of illusion intact and want to know nothing of the truth – the struggle with it is not pleasant to them. It is much more pleasant to be lulled in the old imagined false securities, because letting go of old structures hurts, and brings along chaos and uncertainty.
People therefore try to avoid their pain and the whole human existence develops into a single avoidance strategy, based on diverse compulsions and the resulting misbehaviour. Man is afraid of suffering.
But the only way is to face this suffering, so that one submits to it in order to be freed from it. Otherwise, man remains forever trapped in the veil of his perception and lives as if asleep under the hypnosis of his own mind.
So, WHAT IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY?
