Sometimes in life we are just fools chasing our tails. Other times we have actually been deceived by somebody else. We believe something because we have been convinced something is true. What we think we know may not be true at all.
The rebirth can be this way. Some people think they are saved by their rituals. Our works can’t save us but our obedience can. Only the death of the seed allows for the growth of the plant. When did you die?
