GLASSES

GLASSES

A Poem by T
"

glasses=conditioning, past experiences

"

Putting on glasses today
she puts them on to play
through the filter of past truths

She puts them on to see
what the meaning could be
of what is before her

Every person she knows
and in every way it shows
this view of enlightenment

But is she really seeing
or only just beleiving
the limitations shown her

Hard to say she will tell you
that this is all she has to 
see what is before her

But I think it's time to tell her
to get out of her shelter
and buy new glasses..........

I've always felt the first step is to realize that we are wearing glasses, all of us, all different, and to take into awareness how our glasses, those filters, alter what we see, or what we 'think' we see. The world becomes a creation of our mind, building images from idea and ignoring the reality that 'it is what it is' and what we think about it is something else entirely. T, this is another very introspective piece. Thanks for sharing. :-)

Whether people wear glasses or not, they often choose to see what they want to see, not what is actually right in front of their noses!

Enlightenment comes with trying different lens, different points of view, different experiences, and I think you're saying just that in this fine, fine post.

But I think it's time to tell her
to get out of her shelter
and buy new glasses..........

Thank you very much for sharing

Many people wear a form of transitional lens as they go through life, allowing the lenses to change passively as they will and not necessarily realizing that their vision is affected as such. They do not realize that they do not have to look at life so passively, that they can simply put on a different pair, and view life in a new way. It is like going from an old prescription, where things have become blurry either as the prescription is now too strong or too weak. With new glasses, you can see clearly again... nicely done.

Excellent lesson to be learned here, there is more out there then the eye can see if you just believe... I think it's time i get new glasses as well... a great write that makes you ponder life's great journey.

A telling comment, I think, on how comfortable it is to have our world a bit muzzy around the edges, not quite real. Very well done.

I really enjoyed this piece. It is always better to get out in the world and make all new memories, instead of just sitting back and dwelling solely in those past miseries.

Sometimes people don't want to see the truth
I say we all should face the truth, then and only then
we know were we stand and can move forward with life
Well penned as always

we tend to see only what we want to see with or without spectacles A change of viewpoint works wonders

It's a wonderful journey this becoming, It's part letting go of who I was, while releasing the beliefs that sabotage what I want to be, and-knowiing that in order to transform, I can't live in b.. more..
