Two steps of perception
Every person perceives the same thing. But their perceptions are different. All perceptions are dependent on the story that they have with the individual. This is a two step process. 1.) Perceive cleanly without the story first. 2.) Apply story. Very few people even know step 1 exists. When we slow our lives down, we can discover step 1 in every situation. Gradually, we will be well established in step 1 and develop lot of space between us and step 2. Eventually step 2 will become immaterial and our actions will be free of the same. Perfect step 1 is choiceless awareness! Can we discover the same in every situation in our lives?
