Objective meditations: what is reality? - contemplation


Is certainty a projection from inside the mind, or is it an "altered lens" into the exterior world? Let's look at the misused lens concept first. Obviously, we are not all looking at the world with the same lens or viewpoint. If that were possible, and we had a dependable moral code of ethics, we would have world peace.

Imagine no wars, conflict, divorce, or crime. It does make you think that John Lennon might have been thousands of years ahead of his time, when he wrote the lyrics for his song, "Imagine. " Although, we may not agree with every word, the brain wave of comprehensive harmony captivates the mind.

Is this a reality? At this instant in time, it doesn't look possible. Peace agreements seem so close, and then, an assassination, or a suicide bomb, changes everything. Why is this world not ready for a Mahatma Gandhi, Anwar Sadat, or Martin Luther King, Jr. ?

Do we, as a species, need to grow, and mature a diminutive more, or can we make small changes in this world now? You can make small changes by bringing out the inner calm you have residential by means of contemplation practice. If you are still not sure how to proceed, demonstrating acts of kindness to each you meet, will do.

At the very least, subsequent the Fair-haired Rule is good for you, and all you come into call with. Remember, "Do unto others as you would have them do to you". - Luke 6:31. This act will bring your lens into focus.

On the other hand, a projection is a conception from in the mind's eye. This, in turn, gets impressions by in receipt of imagery from external the body, and judges everything.

This classification, and judgment, creates a biased frame of mind that reacts to a world formed by the same mind. The conundrum is - these judgments go hard into distinct beliefs, follow-on in a realism of pre-conceived notions. I refer to this as, The Cycle of Assessment Theory, and hope that you obviously appreciate the cycle.

The answer of the cycle of conclusion is dangerous, as there is no room for objective viewpoints. All is classified as black or white, and there is no room for a "gray area. " This detail viewpoint, with actual beliefs, has no room for alteration and will not negotiate.

So both realities exist - creating more realities with budding opposites. This explains why we see ancestors adjust atrocities. Each time you meditate, and are able to find objective viewpoints that are good for your mental health, at all times beware of critical associates who have no capacity to analyze or open their mind.
