Critical to seeing the truth about what you are,
and what is going on here,
is to be able to discriminate between conceptual thought,
and what can be referred to as “perception”.
Concepts are ideas, imagination, fantasy creation in thought form.
The content of concepts is always about what is (though the substance of concepts is “What Is”).
Concepts are a presentation of a possibility.
Most live there life absorbed in this imaginative level,
believing it is actually happening,
believing it is “What Is”.
People, places, things, time, all seem real,
But they are just imagination.
Perception is just what awareness registers,
how things actually are observed to be.
Just what is in awareness.
To know what is really going on in life, you must rely on perception, direct evidence.
Just what you can verify first hand.
That base reality will inform concepts,
Aligning them with reality as better pointers.
To only weigh concepts against concepts,
wihout a perceptual measure,
is to remain in fantasy.
How much can you really learn from that?
