Encountering the world...

By Vichara

We really never encounter the world; all we can experience is our nervous system perceiving the world. It is how we greet the world that will determine how the world is for each one of us. It is at this point in writing this thought that I would try to convince you of these truths but of course that doesn’t work. The collections of these words are my personal vision of the world and not yours. While we would say that there are similarities in our perception of the world I still don’t see the world through your eyes and you through mine. What I can offer is this. The degree that your nervous system can uniformly experience the world can be greatly enhanced by one word – compassion. This common meeting place of our human existence can help our collective focus and vision to find ways to better perceive and improve our vision of what the world is and what it can be.
