VAT: Meanings Distort Reality

Our mind ascribes meanings to experiences which distort reality.

For example, if it comes to the light of day that our mate is having a mutually pleasurably affair with our best friend, we might be upset as this means we have been betrayed and they both are not trustworthy. However, these meanings are stories we’ve been told, we embrace and frame how we view the world. In reality, our mate and our best friend are simply enjoying themselves. How can we not be happy for both of them.

This is an enlightened perspective: accepting the world without judgment (it is what it is whatever it is), free from Karmic prisons (the stories we’ve made up and believe about our past keep us from experiencing the present as it presents itself) and happy to see others enjoy themselves.
