In the emptiness, stillness and silence, everything comes up for inspection. If we can hold it in our awareness as interested observers, without engaging with any of it, just watching, just seeing, just knowing, we can discover how our experience has impacted us by the frequency with which things appear to pass in review. and by our tendency to be "hooked" by some things more than others. In question here is our perspective and how we evaluate our experiences in light of their--what? What are our memories reminding us of? What is the perspective reflected in the memories we remember, and cannot stop thinking about? What does the weight we give certain experiences and the way we think about them, interpret them, assign meaning to them say about the way our perspective of events has shaped our life in ways that a different perspective of the same events would not have? What happened to us is not as much of a burden as how we reacted to what happened to us. How we reacted and continue to react is determined by the perspective we had/have regarding the experiences that remain vibrantly alive for us, even now, even so, even yet. Reflecting on our perspective offers the possibility of new realizations, insight, enlightenment, awakening, freedom and life, even now, even so, even yet. All because we sat quietly and watched what appeared in the silence.
