The 5th Obstacle

We've been sold a lie. We've been told we need to hustle, make money, acquire possessions and focus on the future. We've been told that the world is scary and scarce, and that we shouldn't trust people. This mentality rehires us to place people and situations in order of importance. It makes us social climbers and opportunistic.

Bhrantidarsana, the 5th obstacle, is living under illusion or wrong understanding. Wrong understanding is that any particular moment, person, or situation is more important than the next. May we savour each moment we are presented with.
