Lenses, blindfolds and bondage

Do we really see, or do we see the image through the lens of the past, the lens of a theory or the lens of our expectations and future.  If we do, we miss the actuality and the uniqueness of the thing.

Oh, another relationship, oh another mean person, oh another utterance of ‘thank-you’, ‘hello’. Oh, its my husband, again.

Knowledge erects a wall; we see the knowledge not the object.  Wisdom is to see the uniqueness.

Perhaps an entry point to this mode of being, is to simply stop thinking and to trust the vicereal.  My practice for the day.  Stop thinking, start seeing.

  1. Indeed knowledge can obscure seeing what does not “fit” within established perspectives. A wall, yes. Goal perhaps to make such walls flexible, permeable, transparent. Knowledge itself is healthy … but only when ever-expanding, not restrictive. Gotta temper knowledge with curiosity!
