When we don’t know our natural state of well-being we feel that either we, others or life need to be fixed and nothing anyone says can convince us otherwise. And although it is important to trust our own experience - what if our way of viewing our experience is somehow skewed in an unnatural way and we don’t even realize that?
Maybe the feeling that something needs to be fixed is not an indication that something actual needs to be fixed – but is only an indication that our way of now seeing or perceiving needs to be ‘fixed’. Maybe it is only the way we are now perceiving that is creating the impression that something needs to be fixed.
So if we don’t investigate which way it is we can go on ‘trusting our experience’ not even realizing that we are trusting what is not actual.
It is all very simple. Instead of seeing things imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you can see everything as it is, you will also see yourself as you are. It is like cleansing a mirror. The same mirror that shows you the world as it is, will also show you your own face."
