Regardless of the power of temptation, some of us find ways to pursue our desires and yet be able to fulfill our roles and what is expected of us. I found that without courage, most people end up in painful situations where their only goal is pleasure. The world knows your weaknesses and will exploit them to see how strong you can become.

That’s why we’re surrounded by decepción, as if we were walking blindfolded towards a cliff, desperately trying to reach the edge. As if discovering what’s beyond would be a good reason to live life at its fullest.

That is why we are surrounded by disappointment, as if we are walking blindfolded towards a cliff…desperately trying to reach the edge. As if discovering what’s beyond was a good reason to live life to the fullest.

Something tells me that there is more than we can grasp of reality―a set of rules has been imposed on us. However, we are endowed with free will and for this we will pay dearly. I believe that the world collects its payments and people who are carried away by temptation have to cover higher fees.

Some gifts have worse consequences than others, and those who are entitled to free will must pay painfully. We cannot remember anything other than our current existence, but we are sure that we were lured into a trap, designed for us; at least it is the best alternative of existence. We must remember why we have to start from scratch.

I think the world is full of signs, invisible signs that manifest when you’re paying attention, like in the Quantum Zeno effect. In other words, you are the only one who can see your path and find the traps that are placed on your way. Once you’re ready, a guide will appear, but remember to be discreet.

    This is a very fascinating and beautifully written take on temptation. Given that it was written several years ago, I wonder if it still reflects your views? I know many of the spiritual ideas I had seven years ago have gone through a revolution of their own, and I would say that transformed both me and my views, which continue to cascade through an evolution of their own.

      Ariana, my views haven’t changed an inch since the date I posted it.

    I see that you have liked some of my posts so I decided to look at yours. I found this Temptation post very interesting. There are signs that I am just learning about now. As a person going through a medical crisis, I can see that something like this was going to happen in some way based on signs starting in my youth.

    I got tempted to comment after I seeing the picture you used. The Cattle Egret on the right, I like that bird! It is looking so cute there!

    I was learning the Catholic prayer of faith – it was written “one who does not deceive and one who cannot be deceived is God”. There is so much power to that statement. Many men deceive us, online and offline but somehow I have ended up believing in God’s immense power to see through everything.

    Thanks for the post on temptation!
