The lures of the world glimmer and tempt toward a better life of more status, more money, more power, more recognition, and more sex appeal. But once these gifts are seen to be fool’s gold, the underlying illusion of the world is unveiled. As long as one gives faith to the ego, one will seem to be a pawn in the ego’s game. Once the ego is exposed, it is no longer attractive. When faith is withdrawn from an illusion, the illusion disappears, just as darkness vanishes with the dawning of light.
