In order to become a complete person, a whole person, one must start subtracting from his mind which, until now, he has always added to. Only then can he walk the path to human completion. Truth is revealed to the extent the pictures, which are false, have been discarded. Completion is when a man who is 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 Story about Book:
The title of the book, Stop Living In This World, Go To The Everlasting World Of Happiness, Live there Forever, was written by the author himself without particular regard to current title trends, and as such is not a sophisticated or catchy title. It simply states the definitive purpose and essence of the book itself, and reflects the author’s open and direct writing style.
It refers to escaping from the mind world that we have each made; and being reborn having become the Universe itself is what is meant by “going” to the everlasting world of happiness, which is something that must be done while we are still alive.
The calligraphy in the book was written by the author, who has written countless works of calligraphy with his inimitable penmanship. The title calligraphy written in Korean also appears on the cover of the English edition.
The illustrations were also drawn by the author himself, to provide a visual reference for the points he makes in the book in order to make them easier to understand. They appear frequently throughout the book and like his writing style, they are simple and yet profound, easy to understand and drawn humorously.
