The Way Of The Way 89

We always experience reality via our senses but we rarely do.

From birth, we experience reality purely as the stimulation of our senses.  As we mature into adults, much of our sensory experience is adulterated by our mind. The etymology of mind is memory. Our memories, which we weave into stories based on our attitude and socialization, distort reality, making our experience of reality an illusion. Our illusions are further reinforced as they are generally shared by others.  Those of us who experience reality with a childlike fascination, unadulterated, as if for the first time, experience reality via our senses.
