Is this woman a mother, a daughter, a sister, a spouse, a boss, an employee, a teacher, a student, a friend, an enemy, a stranger, or something else? One singular person can simultaneously embody all these designations, as she relates to various individuals.
There are many planes and optics, and they do not negate each other. Contradiction only occurs from the standpoint of a fixed perspective. The same object can be viewed simultaneously from various perspectives, all simultaneously ‘true’.
The Dharma teaches us that all views are interdependent. The relationship of the object and the subject defines the perspective –if the relationship changes, so does the view.
‘Here’ is only ‘here’ because of my position in reference to ‘there’.
