If we put green tinted glasses on everything we look at seems green.
And then we’re amazed when others see things blue.
How can they not agree with me that everything is green?
Don’t they see what I’m seeing?
We not only don't see the green tinted glasses we are wearing
we don't see the blue tinted glasses others are wearing.
Awakening is not about seeing through glasses with a particular tint –
it’s about seeing without any tinting at all.
Before ideology or any concept
it's our natural way of seeing - born of Love.
So .. how can we tell the difference
between the seeing that is tinted and the seeing that isn't?
One way is to notice if all-inclusive Love is present.
If anyone or anything feels outside of Love -
no matter what kind of tinted glasses they are wearing -
then that is a sure sign that we also are wearing tinted glasses.
"Become as the young child
and enter the Kingdom of God'"
Our natural state is revealed
not by adding
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."
