There is a hidden hand at work operating the functions of the world and you are allowing it to do so by participating. You are not living an authentic life but instead you are living an illusion of various options provided to you by that hidden hand. Independence is an illusion. Freedom is an illusion. Ask yourself, have I been sold a lie? Only matters whether or not you have bought that lie. Gaining knowledge is a whole different thing than loving knowledge. You are not spiritually adept. How are you tuned? Are you in-tune or playing chaotic music? Toxic people feel good in chaos and you are facilitating them. Man is his own savior. No Person Living In His Center Can Be Hypnotized.
