  • Jul 18 2013: Yes, it just a metaphor. Idea is to make this place as beautiful as heaven (may be imaginary world as described in texts) so that all humans can live in peace and happiness.

    I strongly believe that anywhere self takes precedence than others fellow beings (including animals and other creatures), we disturb this beautiful world. Shedding of EGO is one of the most important factors for a peaceful being and world that I learnt from my religion.

    - Love everyone and never hate anyone can only be achieved if we lose our EGO.
    - Everyone action of ours is always directed for the benefit and welfare of ME and at times when it endangers others (even in minimal way of hurting others feelings), we continue to do because our EGO says me first. So look behind every action and if intentions are bad, stop doing it
