the idea of "manipulating reality at will"
is I think, still a very egoic idea.
manipulating...hmm yeah. LIke pulling flowers out of air? Creating perfume on unscented flowers? Having a good day?
Still a parlour trick
to impress the impoverished, I fear. Sorry to be so blunt.
What is "reality"?
Is one free of
"filters" enough to say?
I recognize that I shape (have shaped) reality--react and respond to triggers...but am a long way to giving that totally up--or maybe not. The point is, I *see* it--whereas years ago I blithely and happily meditated ( or believedI did) and believed ideas of freedom were the same As...
NO awake being I've met(and I've witnessed some precious + realized beings)
ever had an interest in "manipulating reality"
that's nothing! I can almost hear the laughter.
Pacifying the mind though--small m, and recognizing Mind
now that would be something.
I have more stories too--funny "reality" stories, but, another time.
Dog (I am caring for) and I must go to sleep.
