Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 07/22/17

“Illusion is sustained by the idea that by pretending to be the way society expects you to be, you will be accepted. This is true of any social group. For example, a person is born into a family of criminals and ends up believing that if he is a good criminal, he will be accepted. So, he does his best to become an expert in crime. If one is born into a religious family, one believes that he or she will only be accepted if they are religious. So they force themselves to be so in order to ensure their inclusion. But this religious person or criminal is not real, it’s a mask. The main symptom of wearing a mask is dissatisfaction, but the mask often numbs you so much that you aren’t able to see it.”
