Blurb

There was a psychic who lived during the 12th century. People everywhere came to him for his knowledge. Some of his most devout supporters lived their lives based on his words. Because of him, the people had access to vast knowledge of the past and of the future. So when the psychic died, time stopped and being left with only the present, they knew nothing.

We are Born Complete

A rich man built towers of brick and cement and thought “this is big and strong.” Then having put his heart into all that he had built he thought “therefore, I am big and strong.” in the end, he was small and empty. The rich man who had spent his entire life doing this realised all too late that the heart is not made of up of brick and cement.

One day someone put awareness into a container. With this container the awareness could connect to the things around it. It was awestruck having saw that the earth was so beautiful. But because of influences around it, the awareness retained its eyesight but lost its vision. It was taught to become more, work for more, strive to gain more, and achieve more. That excess was the key to happiness. So this awareness filled its container with many things it was taught were valuable. It became so full that it could barely stand. The things it had filled itself with blocked its energy and made it sick. These very things filled its thoughts and took up its time and effort. One day, the pain became so unbearable that it broke down into tears. All of these falsely valued things came pouring out of it in an uncontrollable flood of tears and drool. After this was done this awareness opened its eyes and regained and its vision. It saw that the earth was beautiful once again.
