The freedom not to see

“What do I see? I see what I choose to see.”

Can you find truth in that for your life?

Understand that the lenses you look through shape your view. For instance, you see the sky’s blue when the lenses highlight that blue. And I’m not talking about visual sights; I’m referring to our inner imaging system.

You see someone, and before they even move, you see what you know about them—whether it’s fact or prejudice. We see only what we wish to see.

Life unfolds its events, and we interpret them based on our desires. It’s exceedingly rare to find someone who looks beyond the lenses, who meets reality directly without any bias.

It’s rare because it appears to lack purpose. Observing without interest, intent, or belief seems devoid of purpose. Yet, this is a time when confusion is parting, and reality is becoming clear.

If we persist in viewing through our lenses, the world as we know it will soon disintegrate, as it’s built on ideas. And ideas can uphold a structure only until they begin to melt.

Reality causes ideas to melt—an inward melting. The brain fumbles to process and respond to events; emotions surge, driving our actions. It’s curious how people discuss global warming yet overlook the global warming of the inner self, of the minds.

This observation is directed at the rare individuals who perceive the call for a fresh action—a drastically different approach, which may not resemble an approach as we know it.

Living amidst a murky mesh of ideas, failing to admit that we see what we wish, and affirming this sequence as an inevitable tide of righteousness will inevitably lead to the end of our world as we know it.
