Perception is always the result of a decision you have made about what you want to be true.
This fact you keep hidden from yourself that your world appear as ‘reality’, something that is really existent, separate from your wishes.
The means by which perception appears to take place, the body, is also an invention of the mind.
Thus the means and what it perceives arise together.
They are co-dependent; without one, the other would not appear to exist.
Such a closed circle is indeed convincing, for you cannot see beyond it.
The means to see, and the world that is perceived, seem to reinforce each other’s reality, leaving you convinced of the reality of both.
Nowhere can you find your way out of this closed circle.
To see beyond the illusions of perception in which you are trapped, help is needed from beyond the illusion.
