Everything you see is not as it seems, nor is it otherwise. Reality is not the things we see or hear. But it cannot be understood in another way. When we say that the Truth is always before your eyes, it is applied not only to philosophy, but also to relations among people. Then our common understanding does not create conflicts with this topic. Truth is one and only. In this truth, conditions are created on Earth for all sentient beings to find the Human Way and realize the True Nature. It is the real meaning of life.
