Daily Meditation:

The seeing of Truth cannot be dualistic (a 'thing' seen). It cannot be seen by a see-er, or via a see-er. There can only be a seeing which itself is Truth. 'All Else is Bondage; Non-Volitional Living' - Wei Wu Wei
Seeing dualism. by my understanding when we see a thing we take in that thing with preconceive notions. What it is what it means what it does what it looks like its actions and reactions. We see this thing with constructs in our mind of the way it is or the way it should be and therefore we do not really see the thing any longer as it truly is but as we want to see it. This happens with objects and with peoples I think. We begin to see others based on perceptions and interactions and we apply interactions with others in situations. So where as we do not really know a person we see them as we want to see them and color all interactions with them according to not that person but to others. So we see these things and we are not really seeing them. They are there but our mind has already made them into an object. We must begin to see with different eyes. Wondering too now if we also view ourselves in this manner. That which I truly am I do not know. I have become something other then how I know myself and the self that I know and the self I present to the world are two different selves and the self that is the self in spirit is not the self that is the self in the world and the self that is the self with others is not the self that is the self with other others. and so the one true self that is who we are all of us as one has not existed in a very long time and that true one self is the self now being sought for life and living and love. the authentic self.
Consumed today by other thoughts so it is a bit short...
