Everyone in your life is a figment of your imagination

 

Everyone in your life is a figment of your imagination—even you.
– Byron Katie

Yep. I relate to my images of myself and others. Sometimes I remember, sometimes I forget (and am reminded because it’s uncomfortable).

……..
……..
……..
……..
……..
……..

– everyone, an image/story, and that’s what i relate to
– close eyes, see an image of the room – boundaries, labels, stories, then open eyes, notice the images are still there, guide attention/action,

……..

I close my eyes and visualize the room. I can see the table, walls, door, computer, my body sitting in a chair. I can see the house, the neighborhood, the town, the country, where it is on the globe, and so on. I notice how these images create boundaries, labels and stories. They define objects with an inside and outside, with names and characteristics, with a past and future, in certain relations with other objects. An arm lifts, and I see an image of the arm lifting. As I open my eyes and watch my arm move, I realize that the image is still there overlaid on the visual perception of the arm. The image is what creates the boundaries of the arm, it’s label, whatever stories I have about the arm.
