perception

A Quote by John Makransky on love, wisdom, buddhism, dzogchen, and perception

We are learning to take off the Coke bottle-like glasses that have hidden the sacred truth that each person is seen accurately only through eyes of wisdom and love, the eyes of the Buddha in us, the eyes of God. Such pure vision is not some ideal from on high. It is our own inmost vision.

A Quote by John Makransky on love, wisdom, buddhism, dzogchen, perception, equanimity, and meditation

To find refuge in our capacity for unwavering, impartial love is to find a stable refuge for all persons, to bless them as sacred beings worthy of love. It is to extend refuge to the many — to encircle all in a zone of healing and protection. We can sense this emerging within the meditation and we can learn to carry its protective power into every part of our world.

A Quote by Pema Chodron on buddhism, perception, and suffering

It isn't the things that are happening to us that cause us to suffer, it's what we say to ourselves about the things that are happening.

A Quote by David Berman on language, things, perception, philosophy, linguistics, and psychology

Language is virtually always pathological; hence the solution is to move as fast and far as possible from language to experience, from linguistic to experimental or psychological philosophy. In order to know that we are not in the linguistic maze, we need to determine, according to Berkeley, whether the things we are talking about exist; hence we need to look for the relevant perceptions. For him, this usually means retiring into himself and trying to imagine whether x exists, having formed the best definition possible of x.

A Quote by David Berman on sight, knowledge, perception, and sense

Suppose one who had always continued blind be told by his guide that after he has advanced so many steps he shall come to the brink of a precipice, or be stopped by a wall; must not this to him seem very admirable and surprising? He cannot conceive how it is possible for mortals to frame such predictions as these, which to him would seem as strange and unaccountable as prophesy doth to others. Even they who are blessed with the visive faculty may (though familiarity make it less observed) find therein sufficient cause of admiration.
