As long as there’s ignorance in place, this is the operating energy of one’s life. This operating energy arises as what’s on the surface and it doesn’t allow one to see what’s truly going on.
Often how things appear on the surface isn’t actually how they are. If one truly wants to see what’s going on, getting beneath what is seen on the surface will have to happen. If two people are looking at same thing there are usually two different opinions of what is seen, and than there’s what’s beneath the surface of the formed opinion, this is the truth. It’s the old adage, there’s two sides to every disagreement, there’s my side, their side and than there’s the truth. To stop seeing what’s on the surface one only needs to stop labeling what is seen. Stopping the labeling process allows the mind to slow to a point when space opens up. It’s imperative for this to happen if the conditioning that’s been formed over the years is to lessen its grip.
The conditioning is so misunderstood and how this is known is because of the behavior that’s in place. I look to my own reactions to know this and in the process I can see it in others. This isn’t a judgement, it’s factual. Know your own mind and you will know the mind of others. This is because we are all of the same energy. Are we not? Who among us is from somewhere else. Creation is creation anyway it’s sliced. When the conditioning is seen for what it is, its energy begins to transform in a direction that allows liberation. As long as there is ignorance of this, the energy of ignorance remains as the operating energy of one’s life. This operating energy arises as what’s on the surface and takes on many forms, but the bottom line is it’s the conditioning in place and it doesn’t allow one to see what’s truly going on.
