Limited ways of viewing

Intent on security, we rely on the mind’s limited ways of viewing, embracing narrow focal settings such as ‘obvious’ and ‘clear’.

In particular, we single out the perspectives that offer guidance and goals:

  • the pursuit of fame, wealth, power or pleasure;
  • devotion to art, religion, or skeptical rationality;
  • technology, telepathy, or yogic attainments.
