How to Live
Nobody enjoys others telling them how to live. People enjoy freedom. But with freedom comes responsibility. People don’t like the government because the government imposes a certain way of living. The government provides restrictions on how you should live. Religion also provides restrictions on how you should live. There is corruption in government and there is corruption in religion. Because of this corruption, people have no trust in authority. Our parents also provide restrictions on how we should and should not live. But our parents can be corrupted as well. Everywhere we look, we don’t know which authority we can trust.
Fact of the matter is that we must be guided by truth. Truth is beyond government, truth is beyond religion, truth is beyond any guidance that can be provided by our parents or teachers. Truth is within us, we must become our own authority and live this truth. The world can be against us, the politicians, the priests, the officers, the judges, the professors, etc. But truth rises above all. When we know the truth within, we follow it, even if it means going against the masses.
