We live in the world of the dead matter – at least we surround us with the dead matter, for everything except the living nature is made of dead materials. We live in dead houses, use dead furniture, we eat dead food…
And then, the modern urban life does not let one much chances to reconnect with the nature.
Therefore this dead matter overpowers us and does not let the spirit to get awaken or to keep the awakened state on its own.
Therefore we have to overcome this massive dead matrix in order to let our true self shine through.
