What we see, and what we don't...

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Reality, woven like a silken fabric,

folds upon itself, layer after layer,

back and forth in an endless array of shimmering life unfolding,

each stitch an integral part of the infinite whole.


Where it touches, connections are made,

knowledge related and often misunderstood,

the truth winding its way beneath,

eventually joining to complete the picture as a whole reality.


How often we judge life and circumstance from that gentle touch,

that inference of knowledge unrealised until the fabric unfolds,

each thread and endless line of truth cascading,

imbuing an ever-growing reality.


Perspective can only be envisioned from one point,

and in that respect sight is governed from our stance,

no matter how we seek repositioning,

the truth in its entirety always exists beyond our reach.


We are arrogant to think otherwise,

to think that reality presents itself unencumbered,

for us to embrace and accept,

and to accommodate in the path of our lives.


All we can do is to be open to change,

to accept that we rarely see the ultimate truth,

and to allow in our hearts the unfolding of it regardless of judgement,

regardless of how we would like it.

      Certainly not Leslie, being open to new ideas and change is a capacity that can enhance life to a high degree. The ability to understand different perspectives is a goldmine of learning and experience.

      It all comes down to perspective, doesn't it? If only more human beings had the capacity to...adjust...their points of view! Instead of being open to new ideas - it seems they will do anything to defend their own - including killing anyone who disagrees!

      My perception is that you are not one of these folks, Tony!

      Yes, each has their own reality. The big fish in the pond wants to eat, the minnow in the same pond, just wants to hide and survive, the poor on the street just want to last until tomorrow, and the well to do, cry over the stock market while they down fine wine and grovel over a leg of lamb. Yes, we all have our own realities.
