Everything Matters: Beyond Meds

We perceive the world in a particular way and confidently expect it to conform to its appearance. But we fail to recognize that certain aspects of the ‘reality’ that appear to us are nothing but figments of our own imagination. In this confusion a conflict ensues between the world as it is and the world as we believe it to be. And the more we insist on our infallibility, the more frustrated we become as the actual world again and again stubbornly refuses to live up to our expectations.Stephen Batchelor from Alone with Others: An Existential Approach to Buddhism

    Hows my blogger firend Katie! This is so true.
    We see the world through conditioned classes. I used to believe the world was a terrible place and all people could not be trusted. That was the view from my glasses.
    I am learning that the only thing that cant be trusted are those damn classes.
