The best way to unlock a person's potential is through "grounding. When left unchecked, human consciousness tends to immediately jump to the past or future, but by simply focusing on the "now" and this moment, we can maximize our true potential. Even the concept of time, such as the past or the future, is an illusion, and ultimately there is only the present moment. By focusing all our attention on this moment, we free ourselves from the egoic cage of the mind, which brainwashes us with miscellaneous thoughts. The often-used expression " bringing down God" may suggest a method of returning to one's true self. This work expresses the idea that people are constantly receiving blessings not only from the heavens but also from the earth, and that it is important to be grateful for both.

人の潜在能力を開放する最善の方法は「グラウンディング」です。人の意識は放って置くとすぐに過去や未来へ飛びがちですが、「今」この時に意識を向けるだけで、本来の力を最大限に発揮できます。過去や未来など、時間の概念すら幻想であり、究極的には「今」この時しかありません。そこに全神経を集中することで、自らを雑念で洗脳する精神というエゴの檻から解き放つのです。よく用いられる「神を降ろす」という表現は、本来の自分に立ち帰るという一つの方式を示唆しているのかもしれません。人は天だけでなく大地の恩恵も常に受けており、その両方へ感謝することが大事であるという思いがこの作品に込められています。
