Excerpt About Conceptualizing
Mind Automatically Crystallizes Around ConceptsWhen you say that there is a mountain and there is flat land and they are different, your mind automatically, naturally, becomes crystallized around the concept of a mountain as reality and flat land as reality. This crystallization prevents you from seeing that they are one thing. You do not see the reality that is beyond the distinctions, because you are looking at the distinctions, at the differentiated concepts. Because you think that reality is composed of those differentiated concepts, you don’t see the unity beyond the concepts. And if you don’t see the unity beyond the concepts you don’t see reality, you only see concepts.
