Re: [U-Zendo] Beginner question?
- Hi Ralph,
This is a really wonderful insight. You have discovered what
most people never know: We live in Plato's cave, and we mistake the
shadows of our lives for our lives as they are lived. Everybody forms
a "picture" of their actual experience. Because you know the
difference between the experience and the "picture" of the experience,
it is obvious that you know the experience before the "picture."
The important thing to remember, is that the "picture" is just a
picture. Let it go and be ready for the next experience.
