Hope is born from despair. They are two sides of the same coin. Where there not is hope, there is hell, and because we are afraid of hell, we seek the meaning, which is in the hope. Then the illusion begins.
The word has in that way led to an illusion, and not at all to God. God is the illusion, which we worship, and the non-believer creates the illusion about another God, which he worships – science, the state, utopia, or a book, which he thinks contains the whole of the truth.
So, what we as Life Artists ask ourselves, is whether we can be free from the word with it´s illusions?
Would that lead to despair?
