The View

True colors don't necessarily paint pretty pictures.  It's all in the view.  The minds eye can project images that may or may not be grounded in reality.  So is anything we see real?  You can close your eyes and still "see" any object you have ever viewed in your lifetime.  As long as you have the memory of a person, place or thing you can "see" it.

I bring this up because over the weekend, I realized I had a view that was not based in reality.  Until we connect what we see to what we feel, our view is just a mental projection.  This applies to anything that we can "see".  There are "artists" in this world that may not understand this concept intellectually but know how to manipulate others using their own mental projections against them.  They take advantage of others by painting an abstract image so that the spectators "see" one thing when a thorough examination of the work reveals an entirely different image.

Take what you see and attach it to what you feel.  If the two don't mate well, then something is wrong.  Let no "artist" manipulate your view.  Be thorough in your examinations so that you see the truth.

Agreed. There are a bunch of great pretenders in this world. But if you take a look at the picture from all angles, you will see it for what it truly is.
