Boy: “Mom, pretend you are surrounded by 12 hungry tigers. What do you do?”
Mom: “Hmm, I don’t know.”
Boy: “Stop pretending”
What an insight for how we live our lives, believing in falsehoods and fear. Once we stop pretending and live life in Truth, as it is, we are free indeed. (as taught by the masters, the Truth shall set us free.).
To quote my own poem:
“For God so Loved the human race, that he made us to be free.
And with our minds, we each must choose, to live or make-believe.”
