“We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.” - Anaïs Nin

When we look a tree what we really see? When you feel sad or happy, why and how you feel it?

Please start to think about what you see, and soon you will realize that we use our lens to see things, the lens of our knowledge, the lens of our culture, the lens of our beliefs and a bunch of other lens that maybe we aren’t aware of … with so many lens it is difficult to believe that we can see things as they are. So it is time to review our beliefs, to see things in different ways, to be more critical and at the same time more easy going … live the diversity and try to see things with less lens and from lot of point of views.

My thoughts, now is your turn. What do you think?

  1. Yes, i agree fully with you. What we say, see, hear..everything shows the kind of person we is all our preception and we interpret the things, not as they are but according to our beliefs and mind conditioning. In India, if there is more than one billion people, there are at least more than a million temples and other religious places. Every year, one hear people gathering on some occassion at a religious place and many die in stampede. Recently, i was on South India bike tour and i met a man who was not wearing any foorwears and even riding his motor-cycle without shoes. I asked him the reason and he said that he was on fast and after a week he had to go to some temple for prayers and all. I questioned him if he really believed that God lives in temples. he thought for awhile and said that no, that wasn't the case. But then, since it is people's perception and they keep doing the things without questioning the significance.
    I have seen in most of the community in India, men have little respect for women but there are hundereds of Goddesses in India and mostly they are the men who worship imagine, the height of hypocracy..but u can't change the mind conditioning of the people...They, indeed, wear a lot of lenses and can't dare to see the things from a different perspective.
