How do I see the realty, the truth, depends on the quality of my lenses. Seeeing the reality blurred by the dust of isms like racism , sexism, classism and religionism causes and sustains our blindness. I need to clean and clear my lenses to see the reality just as it is, tathata as the Buddha, the awkened one says. Neurologically speaking, we overvalue the functiong of the left hemispere of the brain in our schools, in our homes and in our society at the cost of the right hemisphere of the brain, the emotional brain. We become lopsided of balance lacking in empathy, compasion and connectedness. I like the word sweeping mentiond by the author Zenju Earthlyn Manuel. It stands for cleaning the mental lense, opening the door of heart.
What do I accomplish and how do I perceive my accoplishments is very important. I got my dotoral degree. I got acedemic awards. I felt proud of my accoplishments. I had learned that the capital I, my Real Self is not defined by my credentials, my achevements and my possesions. The egotististicself is the small self. Such knowing helps me to be humble and helps me realize the oneness in manyness.
Awareness of my inner world of thoughts, emotions, desires, and aspirations and actions helps me walk steadily on the path of freedom. I remain spiritually awake.
