The reality you experience is filtered through the lens of your mind, your unconscious beliefs, your desires, anxieties and self-made dialogue. Everything that you think you are is made up of a story in your head, Whether something is good or bad depends upon the individual and how they experience it and therefore is subjective, meaning it is your interpretation of the truth.
The objective reality is the reality that is concrete, unchanging and exists as it is; without comparison, meaning or description – a river is a river, a mountain a mountain and exists whether you name it or not.
When you experience the objective reality, the mountain as it is – without the overlapping of opinions, memories or your comparable experiences, it just is a mountain, and you are only the witness. There is no ‘I’ and’ It’ because the identity, which is your internal dialogue has gone silent.
The turbulence in your day to day life is merely a construct of your mind and without thoughts, the truth that is – stillness, serenity, bliss and equanimity is realised. Life is energetic and intelligent it knows no time, no comparison, past or future, it just is as you are, existence and awareness.
If you and the mountain exist without thought, then the mind and reality are two separate things; Therefore happiness begins where ideas and thoughts end.
