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.
There are signs everywhere and yet we do not see them.
We are all looking for the next big thing, it’s how we’ve become conditioned by the collective mind. We so desperately want it that it never comes. That’s because we are sending out desperate signals to the world and desperation puts others off and they’re too busy desperately seeking something to notice anyway.
If we paused our search for the next big thing and enjoyed this moment, that is now, right now, becoming actually awake and away from the desperation of our thoughts, we’d start to see. Seeing is about awareness, about consciousness, about being aligned with our true essence and not attached to the story and the unconsciousness of the mind. Our sight is blocked by our mental blindfold of judgement and desperation to find what we so desperately seek.
When conscious, we’d see the signs and the universe would work with us to bring us all we need to experience what we seek from our soul and not our mind.
