In order to see the truth about things, we need to ask questions and keep asking questions. Question about the truth about life. We need to set aside everything we know and read about and everything someone said or what religion teaches us and from zero re look at the world with a pure mind.
We need to peel back the layers of the onion that we created and see things as it is. What is there is there. We need to go back to basics. After all the layers of the onion have been peeled away ( the illusions and delusion) and fake information dropped, and things that work against us changed, then we will understand how things are. And when we understand how things are then maybe we will know what we need to do. How to live properly.
