Some of us, we trusted and believe so much on our senses.
However, most of the times, our senses might trick us. Unfortunately, we are unaware.
We might have full confident on what we see.
Whatever images go in to our eyes, there are upside down…Have you ever ask why the images that we “see” are so normal?
All this images being adjusted by our perception and old memories.
As such, what you see might not be the truth.
When stranger scolded you, “Mad”, are you angry? How about your parent, if they scolded you the same word, “Mad”, Are you angry?
How about your taste bud? Can you trust it 100%?
“Master your senses, What you taste and smell, What you see, what you hear. In all things be a master Of what you do and say and think. Be free. Are you quiet? Quieten your body. Quieten your mind. By your own efforts Waken yourself, watch yourself, And live joyfully. Follow the truth of the way. Reflect upon it. Make it your own. Live it. It will always sustain you.”
