To truly understand is to be aware of all reality through your awareness of your own reality. In this, no illusion can cloud your vision for your reality leaves no room for error. In this way you only see your brother, father or friend as you see him now. The past has no place in the present so you cannot see it. The manner you reacted to them in the past is also not there, and if it is to those past reactions that you respond then the friend that you see before you is but an illusion, an image that you built of them and cherish instead of the truth that is before you in the present. Ask of yourself, is this truly logical to perceive what was as now. If in each encounter you see the past as you look upon your brother, it surely follows that you cannot perceive the reality that is now. When you have understood that to look upon everyone with no reference to the past, either theirs or yours, as you then perceived it, will you be able to learn from and delight in what you see now. The past can cast no shadow to darken the present, unless you are afraid of light. May I wish this weekend for your life to be filled with light, your light my friend.
