Wash away the Filth
“I have to wash away the filth that has been contaminated for a hundred years and go home.” The question is, where is home? Since a person believes that people can go home after death, it means that she believes that the soul still exists after death, how does the soul exist, where are we going, have we asked? Has anyone seen a story about a person who never knows where his home is but can go home? How can we be so confident and confused when it comes to the direction of life and death?
Indeed, there may be three reasons for this situation. One is the lack of revelation of transcendental truth and the lack of contemplation on the order of transcendental concepts, which leads to their lack of clear direction in their thinking, so they have to be alone among the pages of the book. The second is that the body is heavy, which consumes the courage of the mind. The third is to fall into a ubiquitous wrong concept and habit, and be a prisoner of this wrong concept and habit all his life.
Yes, I admit that these words of mine are too demanding. But common sense tells me that for those who are alive, we must have compassion, love and tolerance; for those who have passed away, we must reflect, criticize and doubt. This is the most suitable methodology for treating a person’s life. People’s concept and habits are just the other way round: indifference, meanness, and hatred towards the living; when dealing with the dead, they follow “decision on the coffin” and “the dead are bigger.”
This is a typical worship of the dead, so worshipped for thousands of years, so that the living people are almost dead. This is a curse of the history of ideas. Therefore, it must be emphasized again that if there is no transcendental truth coming and revelation, this habitual conceptual order is invincible. Everyone will undoubtedly die in this habitual order of ideas.
When I write such words, I feel a sense of release, like a rope that has bound me for a long time suddenly breaks. This is my life. Our right hand grasps the gospel tightly, and our left hand works hard to cultivate knowledge. Our life is about to walk into an open place which from praise loudly on the one hand until doubt ourselves deeply on the other.
