pramāṇa viparyaya vikalpa nidrā smṛtayaḥ

Right thinking, wrong thinking, vision, sleep and memory.

These are the things we mistake for what is.

We often seek mediation between our experience and…our experience. A path to “understand” rather than simply being in the experience. We seek reasons and justifications for what is happening, we cultivate a vision of why it’s happening, we try to escape in in sleep and memory.

But in the end, the experience is what is.
