We dont’ see life as IT is, we see it as WE are. I live it from where I am in my own self view.
What’s going on is real (reality). What isn’t real is what my view is. There is no view except in the language world. We, through language, create the filters that alter the reality. The thing we are looking at is real. It’s our concept that’s not real. My experience is the only thing that exists for me. The concept is not real, it’s my view of what’s real, MY world.
It is unconscious living that gives me problems. If I am living an unconscious life I will be given problems to work. When I know who i am I have it all. When I buy into the view I will have struggles. Leave it along and don’t try to fix it. Reactions are discomfort of some kind alerting us to wake up. If there is no value for me it diappears. How I am living myself that the world presents this picture for me and my experience is the only thing that exists for me.
The concept is not real, it is my view of what’s real, my world. All perceptions are abstractions that are apart reality. They are our concept of what we are looking at, it is not real. What’s present is real, but our view given by language has no substance, no staying power. It has no capacity to cause. Life is not static, so language is not static. When we hang on to the picture we are in trouble. All language is a view of reality. Walk on, leave alone appearances.
When we avoid something it dominates us. We take ourselves with us where ever we go.
