A Whole Person – a Person of Truth

A “whole person” is a person who is complete.

A complete person is a true person whose true soul never dies. Such a person is what we call a “saint.” Instead of just talking about living as true human beings, we must actually become true people and live true lives in order to live righteously. It has not been easy for mankind to become complete because even though many have struggled to become so, a man is an entity that is false and incomplete. To be “complete,” means to live without death.

We must first learn about human mind in order to become righteous. A human being is basically a camera – we take pictures of what belongs to the world. Even though we believe we live in the world, the moment that we see the world, we take pictures of it in our minds and live inside the pictures we have taken. This is why people are false. The world and the human mind are overlapping so completely that people mistakenly believe they are living in the world.

Isn’t everything we experience in our minds? What we have seen with our eyes, heard with our ears, smelled with our noses, tasted with our mouths, every word spoken and everything felt are all engraved within our minds. The human mind is like a photocopier which makes copies of things that belong to the world and everything that happens in the world. The human mind is a copier that makes copies of the world to build own mind world. People do not live in the world, however much they may believe otherwise; and the reason people are not able to become complete is they are living in their own mind worlds.

In order to become a complete person, a whole person, one must start subtracting from his mind, to which, until now, he has always added. Only then can he walk the path to human completion. The Truth is revealed to the extent the pictures, which are false, have been discarded. Completion is when one who was false, becomes true. Until now people have always added more and more in their lives. However, when one subtracts the pictures inside his false mind world and discards his “self” that is living in that false world, he can become complete and recover his original nature.

The reason you can exist in the world is because the earth, the ground, exists. The earth exists because the sky, which is the original foundation, exists. Becoming the mind of this sky is regaining your original nature. If man’s false mind and his “self” dies completely, and when only this mind which is the Truth remains, man can regain his original nature.

When one is born again in this original nature which is the sky, he is born in the righteous land which is the Truth. Such a person is free from death and he is the world itself. Therefore, he will know all the ways of the world; he will become a person of wisdom itself; and he will live a life of nature’s flow. Then, the world will become a place without thieves or bad people – it will become a paradise on Earth.
