Once upon a time a man named Plato created a philosophy which clearly dictates the limiting perspectives of the conditioned mind and how our perceptions are created and accepted. If you didn’t understand that philosophy before, let me show you this video! This will explain it in a way you’ve never seen before.
Plato’s allegory of the Cave is the story and metaphor for our awareness of the reality we live in and our prospective of it. Many find it accurate to portray the reality we have perceived is akin to just shadows dancing on a wall, and everything we have previously believed to be true is simply a fraction of the experience of what is really going on in the bigger picture of things. With reality shown to us this way we can begin to understand how there are larger forces of being at play that govern the phenomenon that take place in this realm as well, just like the shadows in the story. Once we see that reality however, when we try to enlighten others sometimes its not so easy to decondition others, as many of you have seen in your own lives.
Sound like the twilight zone?
