17a0912 BLOK ON PERCEPTION


17a0912 BLOK  ON PERCEPTION
How do we perceive?  We perceive with thoughts, concepts, ideas and words.  Or, is it a 'feeling' or 'sense?'  So define 'perception' for me?  What is it to you?
Shakespeare wrote, 'Nothing is neither good nor bad, only thinking makes it so.'  Will was a thoughtful guy!  So, it is judgment that makes perception.  'Aren't those yellow flowers beautiful!'  'I think therefore I am! (Cognito Ergo Sum.)'
I wonder how Rene Descartes and later Spinoza, would have responded to something like, 'No good deed ever goes unpunished?'  
It's how we perceive what is 'good' and what is 'bad,' that makes it so.   What is 'good,' to me, maybe 'bad' for you and vice versa.  If we don't think and/or judge the situation, the event remains neutral!   Nature is neutral.  It's us with ego ('I') consciousness that divides everything up into 'good or bad.'  We make our own 'happiness,' out of the contents of our consciousness!  
It's all about how we perceive things, the world… My young Raoul is correct about this… Notwithstanding his youth, he 'sees' everything as positive (with potential). 
It has to do with being 'open' (not judging so quickly).  Unmake your minds!  Be open!  'To what?'  the little voice asks… Everything and nothing, simultaneity,
The Guan Yin!
Relax!
Let go!
STOP THINKING (PERCEIVING),
Surrender to IT!
This is redemption!
P.S.  But, choose your own practice to achieve this.  JUST DO IT!
Tantric Taoism
