Excerpt About Reality
Seeing Only the Surface of the Creation You See the World of ObjectsThere is no physical reality that exists on its own, somehow separated from another world underneath or above it. The exclusively physical, materialist perspective is a partial perspective created by eliminating the other perspectives. In reality, it is one world. If you see the creation in its totality, it is a unity. If you see only its surface, you see the world of objects. So, eliminating the subtle perceptions eliminates the oneness, the unity that is an intrinsic aspect of the nature of all that exists. We are seeing, then, in some detail, what is meant when spiritual teachings say that we are prisoners of our senses… To know that the physical perspective is only partial is not to devalue the physical, but to allow the possibility that there are other perspectives. We actually need to include other perspectives or dimensions to enable our physical senses to function clearly.
