Blurry Vision

PictureOther people act in our dreams, and often they are people whom we know in waking life. After we wake up, we do not hold them responsible for those actions. We understand that it is our dream; we dreamt it.

Our waking-life perceptions are also like dreams because they are our perceptions. Our perceptions do not come from outside; they are internal mental representations —the products of our sensory limitations, emotional distortions, and conceptual biases.

I have very poor eyesight; I cannot blame the world for my blurry vision.

—TN, The Dharma Handbook

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
