Beyond the mask

When someone tells you, “you should look after your future”, he says this as if he is a lover. But what is he really communicating to you?

He is communicating to you that you are a person limited in time and space who started with a birth, is going to have a future and then is going to die.

One has to guard against such thoughts and such thoughts can enter the mind only in a disguised way, they wear masks.

Insecurity enters you wearing the mask of love.

Fear enters you wearing the mask of care.

Body-centricity enters you wearing some other mask.

Spiritual practice lies in seeing beyond the mask.
