The juxtaposition between the assumption that we possess and process from a bank of common knowledge and that we draw from very different backgrounds, experiences, insights is worthy of exploration. Perspectives and perceptions shift dynamically from person to person and the potential for them shift with an individual is often greater than we recognize as our personalities and perceptions are not static.
Questions to Myself
What vision of knowing or "truth" arose in me each time I heard that phrase? Within this act of consideration has arisen a transmutation of what originally appeared from within me. Each time I considered my view, it morphed or reformed as something completely different. Each time, there has been a distinctly more positive knowing I have recognized within. My knowing seems more integrated, empathetic, and universal than each previous consideration of my own root.
I saw the phrase, "Knowing what we know..." on the a comment on an article today and the most lovely knowing came forward.
I plan to explore this as a walking meditation to examine these ideas of "knowing" further. I want to meditate on the manifested truths we create for ourselves and others. I'd like to consider if and how perception, perspective, and insight impact our internal and external realities. I look forward to hearing about "the knowing" that others discover within themselves and if it is as transmutable as my own seems to be.
