We live in two worlds. The first world is a realm of constantly changing forms, colours, sounds and perceptions. It is a pure realm consisting of pure perception and pure appearance. It is the kaleidoscopic manifestation of primordial, pure presence. This world is joyous, blissful and unutterably beautiful.
Overlaid on this pure realm is a second world, a virtual world, that we call daily life. It is the world of work, suffering, triumph, defeat, banality, and drama. This second world is an artificial one which we have created by solidifying the brilliant, fluid panorama of the first world into a world of frozen objects. We do this by projecting permanence where there is none and separateness where there is an undivided, non-dual landscape.
