I think we live in a fantasy world and tend to believe in a world of illusions. Recognizing and abandoning an illusion makes you wiser and clears the fog, which enables you to perceive previously concealed possibilities, acquire a fresh orientation, and comprehend a bigger picture. Finding truth and living it can truly set you free.
Like Gold, truth can be obtained by washing away the filth surrounding it and the all the rubbish obscuring it. I think truth is meant to be obtained not necessarily by its growth but by washing away everything that is not truth. That way truth, which already existed, begins to emerge and appear before our very eyes.
The adversary takes great pride in making falsehoods appear desirable and true. And, on the other hand, he really thrives on manipulating our perspectives to make the truth itself appear false, useless, and without value.
Consequently, truth tends to be without fashion or style, is not perceived to be popular in this world, and too often is publically scorned and ridiculed. Indeed, it is a tremendous undertaking in life to identify and discard illusions, find reality, and fully embrace the truth by living it.
I suppose the truth is not for all, only for those who diligently and faithfully seek it. After all, few believe that, “The pain of truth is much better than the bliss of an illusion.”
