  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The mind cognizes the universe, the deep secrets of intuition, give us insights from the abyss, and the star of sincerity flies up, the mind changes evolution, either backward or forward, the chemistry of the biology of thoughts, transforms the entire organism of philosophy, thought is like a comet, returns with a vengeance, mutations of egoism bring it closer to death of thinking, in the depths of space we know the truth, the domino principle of randomness of chaos, creates an abstraction of the future self, truth is sincerity increases intelligence, there is nothing more ingenious than sincerity, intuition of conscience leads to sincerity, pettiness of perfectionism and selfishness, highly detailed lies of hedonism. Peace and prosperity heavenly consciousness in your mind, the boundlessness of beauty and romance of being, we know the deep essence of life in ourselves, we know our energy, another world in our mind, it seems to us more real, infinite calmness will reveal all the truths of the universe, the harmony of eternity flows in your body, merging with the universe outside of time, renouncing the world of manipulators, we know life in ourselves, we begin to feel ourselves, paradise in the heart, mind and soul, chaos in the body, the sincerity of genius permeates us, unity with the true self, intuition pierces eternity and looks into the depths of the future, feel the flow of eternity, time hurries to do stupid things. Rocks of life, we form our own landscapes of illusions in cities, in micro spaces in our own worlds, the multi-dimensional space of our own universe of the Internet of all inner worlds, cable thinking, a spider web of fates, the nervous system of human empathy, the ego forms cardinal transformations of vices, a lie for them as anesthetic, a multi-level network of greed creates an urbanization of egoism, where everyone is happy only in their own world, there is no solar system of religion, where God is the sun and people are the planets of the inner worlds, different climates of madness, create an imbalance, here plastic surgery creates parodies of the ego of cartoons, the city is the ugly mockery of chaos, the black humor of the comical paradoxes of reality. Abundance of emptiness, sinking into the nothingness of marketing, shopping turns into a scavenger, seductions of the ego as masturbation, various ornaments of self-love, even a significant other as an ornament, a genetic heritage of narrowness in materialism, a pop culture toilet, a labyrinth of ego illusions, a market of hypocrisy in which feelings are traded as simulated orgasm, including laughter, is a kindergarten of the depravity of selfishness, people have turned into a consumer undead who have no consciousness, they only buy willlessly, tons of ego garbage, an industry to please their vanity, a masterpiece of indifference, hypocrisy, and selfishness, the moral decay of genetics. Peace and prosperity heavenly consciousness in your mind, the boundlessness of beauty and romance of being, we know the deep essence of life in ourselves, we know our energy, another world in our mind, it seems to us more real, infinite calmness will reveal all the truths of the universe, the harmony of eternity flows in your body, merging with the universe outside of time, renouncing the world of manipulators, we know life in ourselves, we begin to feel ourselves, paradise in the heart, mind and soul, chaos in the body, the sincerity of genius permeates us, unity with the true self, intuition pierces eternity and looks into the depths of the future, feel the flow of eternity, time hurries to do stupid things. Holiness is detachment, an interdimensional journey, in harmony with eternity, we are not part of this world, we are only observers, and loneliness leads to holiness and infinite wisdom, reality is only a version of the perception of the world created by chaos, the flow of magnetic energy that redirects the flows of elements that lead to is the development of life, you are not a part of this chaos, but only a spectator who absorbs wisdom through suffering, and anger in this world is a pain that needs to be endured so that the spirit becomes stronger, like the steel of patience, it is not crushable in endless calmness, the transformation into a light being that is immersed through the philosophy of love into a higher dimension of thought. Spirituality is like the freshness and cold of rain, and the dirt of sinful dreams, in the cradle of illusions, the city is dormant in the ego of fantasy, in complete denial of reality, in the time frames of life that seem priceless to them, the one who denies reality denies eternity, the infinity of immortality in the mind, remaining in the lower consciousness, people renounce the true face of their personality, in optimistic hedonism they seek happiness, the city sleeps in sinful temptations, comforting itself with excuses and continuing to sin, the city is a deviant distortion of reality, renunciation of the universe, ego is a paradise of cyber illusions, selfish logic is not cognizes awareness, the blind into non-existence sink into insensibility.
