The only way I know the world

 

The only way I know the world is through my sense fields – sight and mental images, sounds and imagined sound, sensations and imagined sensations, and words which are images and sounds.

This means that the only world I know is my own world, as it is here and now.

I can examine this. How is my perception of time created? Or space? Or myself as a human being? Or a particular future, a particular past, a particular deficient self? What happens as I see more clearly what’s here?

– images, words, sensations etc.
– sight + images, sounds + imagined sound, sensations + imagined sensations, words (images, sounds) etc.

 

The only way I know the world is through my sense fields – sight and mental images, sounds and imagined sound, sensations and imagined sensations, and words which are images and sounds.

This means that the only world I know is my own world, as it is here and now.

And as I examine this, and let it sink in, I see that any perceptions of future, past and present, of space and time, of being a human being, of a world, are created by my own sense fields. I cannot find anything outside of these. And that changes everything, and – in a sense – nothing.
