The shadow of a personal self invites us to turn around, to look at the looker, to see that the seer – that which is actually seeing – is not a personal self, but spirit, itself.
“When the deluded in a mirror look,
they see a face, not a reflection.”
Manjusri, The Kings Dohas
Indeed, when we make experience personal, we view it through conditioned, habitual, mind-interpreted sensations – through ‘a glass darkly’. Absent this conceptual personalization of experience, there is real presence. Unfiltered, selfless, Reality.
“That which cannot change, remains. The great peace, the deep silence, the hidden beauty of reality remain. While it cannot be conveyed through words, it is waiting for you to experience for yourself.”
