I was wondering, and am still wondering, how we shape our answers.
I tried to figure out if there is a way to out fox myself. If I could pose my question in such a way that I could trick myself, then maybe I might find a different answer.
The way we post questions creates our world. It is difficult to get beyond our own perception. We may try to trace the origin of our perception, i.e. childhood, to find out where it has gone from there, but we then still move forward from the same point of origin.
I think, maybe, I am understanding the idea of the empty vessel.
This is a difficult subject.
Let me start again.
I am trying to express something that to me goes beyond words.
It began with a thought I had, every time I do a search for answers, a Google search, a search in the book store, a search by queries, verbally to people I meet in alleged real-time, my subconscious has already framed the questions to find a channel of answers.
The question then becomes, how do I get beyond myself to reach the pure channel of information or am I already in it? As long as I have this other, this human self, that speaks for me, thinks for me, writes for me…will I ever truly know what lies beyond my own sphere of perception?
Namaste! Thanks for the fireside chat.
