Imagine that your reality is like looking through a jar of water. Now, imagine that as you grew up, people would scoop up a spoonful of dirt and pour it into the water. Each spoonful of dirt was a belief, an idea, a conceptual imputation — essentially conditioning from societal, nationalistic, cultural or religious thought patterns. All of that is stirred up and then you were given the instructions on how to keep it stirred. If you forget about the stirring, don't worry, there's plenty of social media, television, radio, internet blogs, and etc. to remind you to keep stirring the mud, thereby clouding your view of reality. Can you imagine if we were to take a moment to stop the stirring and allowed the mud to settle allowing the clarity of the water to reveal reality outside of our belief structures and conditioning? We might actually realize that we have been enchanted by the twirling mud and all the anger fear and hatred was nothing more than ephemeral thoughts in our heads that we believed to be true.
