Reality?

Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Taken from a dialogue in the film The Matrix

The picture was taken late one night at my parents house. I feel it links with the above quote from The Matrix in that all in life is merley perspective. What we see, what we understand to see, is what we know. We are responsible for our own interaction with every aspect of life. The Matrix was about realising the truth, about releasing from the shackles of a false reality. Yet all is reality, it is reality to the perspective of the person. Perspective can change or in other words you can bend yourself but you cannot bend the spoon.

  1. seeking the truth is important. It plays a major factor in Buddhism too. it is important to question everything including the question itself, and also our own inner voices. We believe our inner voices to be I, but they're not usually, and many thoughts are made from our own misconceptions about our lives. Layers and layers of habit, fear and self-doubt can allow us to build up a psyche that we design to protect ourselves but we should face up to the fears and seek the truth about life. Live in the moment, and avoid acting in a certain way to protect us from what we perceive will be.

    Great colours in that picture Haze, you sexy minx.
