Fear is the symptom of lacking knowledge, but when we can see the truth, we can perceive the truth, and when we can perceive the truth, we will know the truth, and when we finally know the truth, we will no longer be afraid of deception. Ironically, we’re afraid to open our eyes because we’re afraid of what we might see (circular reasoning), but in reality, when we finally open our eyes, we’ll know the truth and we’ll be set free from our fear, and then our lives can actually begin. You may say “I’ll believe it when I see it”, but it’s more logical that you’ll see it when you open your eyes, and then you’ll have something better than belief—you’ll know it.
Sight = Perception = Knowledge
When you open your eyes, you will finally know the truth, and the truth will indeed set you free.
