    I asked the same thing when I read that.
    Maybe the quoter means that questioning myself daily will allow me to discern reality from fantasy. Maybe the main point is that truth can withstand endless questioning, but falsehood cannot. Dunno... just taking a stab.

    It's about waking from the dream.

    I think the truth is that delusions are always surface, and that the "deep down" is actually the understanding of their falseness.
    So patience... is nothing...

    Yes... but what it points to also is that the darkness of illusion (or delusion) cannot withstand the light of your consciousness. So, you may actually eliminate your delusion by constantly being aware of it and being more conscious. In short... wake up! Pay attention!

    "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    Sorry. The Libertarian in me is screaming right now.

    They have missed a greater conundrum: why would a perfect God create a universe at all?"
