Nothing is the colour we think it is

The sky isn’t blue or the grass isn’t green or the banana isn’t yellow or the sea isn’t light blue or the snow isn’t white. That is only how our mind sees things through its conditioning of what colours things are, it comes from school and early years.

The same thing with how we see people too. We label them and then we do not see them as they really are, we see them as the label and the judgement that goes with the label.

They speak and we do not hear them, the walk past and we instantly react within to them, a stranger that we’ve never met. We experience fear even based on what they might be wearing.

If we stop and just observe without engaging our mind, we actually see and we do not label or react. Then we realise that nothing is the colour we think, or the person, or event, that the label we created it to be.

Imagine a life where we actually saw…reality.
