How do we learn, live and appreciate?

preceptions as I know them today 10 Dec
 
There is a lot to take in every moment, but it is strange that only one of them relies on ligusitic skills.

Using ken Wilber's terminology:
  • Eye of Flesh
  • Eye of Mind
  • Eye of Contemplation
The Eye of Flesh
Is how we perceive through our sensors. Typically we are learnt we have five, but it now a much longer list.This is one: humans-have-a-lot-more-than-five-senses, I first heard a list on the QI program.

This is the main way we perceive the world, before we could talk the eye of flesh was working and it works until we die. We can put its working in to words, but lingistically we cannot fully describe it and we cannot know that others perceive it the same. There are common words like hot and cold but theses are merely pinters or signposts.

The eye of flesh is our most basic and most accepted form of perception.

The Eye of Mind
The eye of mind is thought, how we organize it how we think etc. This is normally done in our home language, and works like a two wasy conversation. wome part of us listens and the other part talks, normally incesntly. The Eye of mind can be a powerful tool, but can also be desctructive driving fear and panic into our lives, or as Eckhard Tolle, talks about the pain body and the ego being driven by the mind that spends it time in the past and the future, either blaming the past or trying to take care of the future before it happens.

But the eye of mind as a tool, is the tool of the scientist (and most others) but is a tool that can be applied to anything.

The Eye of Contemplation
This is where many people get lost. But the eye of comtemplation is what you experience during deep meditation or prayer. It is the eye that helps you have a spiritual experience or Sitori.

If a person spends years in comtemplation then they tned to all have an awakening expereince, an experience that is timeless.

If everyonbe has it the imperically it is a fact.
