Are Your Windows Dirty?
"You don’t see the world as it is. You see it, as you are" - Anonymous
Imagine trying to see an amazing ocean view through dirty windows… how much beauty would you see?… A glimpse, fragments perhaps…
This world is FULL of beauty, wonder and mystery, and I know that I want to see it all - I don't want to miss a single bit of this incredible life experience.
But it’s dirty windows that prevent me from seeing the crisp colours, the simple delights and the natural beauty.
We all perceive the world through the windows of our own conditioned mind. It is our conditioned mind that distorts, deletes and generalises incoming sensory information, so we don't see the world as it is, we see it as we are!
The cultivation of awareness, through meditation is what enables us to see things clearly, just as they are. Awareness is like our own inner windex (or vinegar if you’re on the all natural bandwagon like us ).
Just recently I put a new and short meditation up on the Med Hub so you can learn how to build this faculty of awareness (and, like always, it's free).
Go get stuck into it and make your inner windows shiny AF, so you can see and enjoy the real inherent beauty of this freakin incredible world.
