The other morning, I was brushing my teeth as usual and my gaze was downward in the sink as I brushed away. I found myself then shifting my sight to the mirror to look at my face. When I looked up, the mirror wasnt there! (The string holding it on its hook had snapped earlier in the day and my wife placed it to the side.) So, it was very interesting, as I saw in my vision, for a split second, my own face! I was so prepared, mentally, to expect my reflection that my brain already completed a picture for me! of me! How much of our vision is our own? Our own invention? Preconceptions are rampant in our minds, and that can be just fine… afterall, we are meant to be that way, but so long as these preconceptions are used properly. What is their proper use? Their correct function? Perhaps some of our preconceptions are just plain false and should be discarded. Perhaps some provide a useful tool for decision-making. In the end, they are always there… what do we do? Well, one thing is to trace the origins of these conceptions, these pre-conceptions. Another thing to do is to simply acknowledge them for what they are and let them go. If they are worthwhile, they will come back to us… if not, overtime, the letting go with make them dissolve away.
