Can you honestly say that this direct perception came free of any filters of pre-existing beliefs? Did you not have some existing influences from studies you have done, and ideas that you considered, from external sources that gave direction to the perceptions you arrived at?

While direct perception is indeed the path to greater understanding, to conclude that it is pure and without influence is the path to another, more subtle level of misunderstanding. I suggest that it is a wise course to understand that truth is not a static realization but a flow of energy that is ever expanding toward greater awareness. The human mind alone is a relatively small vessel compared to the infinite flow of aligned contact with our true nature of being.

Wow - Thanks so much for this thread WW and the contributions everyone has made to date.

I'm a lazy bugger and after reading the first 6 pages of this thread I decided to skip to the last page hoping for a conclusion of some sort. But what was I thinking?

I wonder then if perhaps all who have contributed to this thread could summarise for me their views please?

Perhaps as an example - One could summarise WW's position (if I am reading it correctly) as the ego-less "I" and "You" - being perhaps individual POVs through which Conscious Awareness is experiencing the world of forms.

I guess one of my views between p6 and here was that trying to take shortcuts decreases awareness and understanding, turning down the immense opportunities on offer :wink:

3Dom this topic became this long through animated participation, enthusiasm and sharing, many of the contributors have moved on, physically, mentally, growing their awareness.

Do you think your 'labelling' of yourself as 'a lazy bugger' maybe gives you the false sense of what that entitles you to or shoring up the limits you are imposing upon yourself and/or others in experience?
