Okay, so we're paying attention now, right?
So how clearly do we see? What is real? Is what our brain telling us accurate? Or is it a shorthand perception-- a quick glance, a quick assessment, a quick conclusion which is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Our temple's Dharma Talk today was about right view. Much of the talk centered on perspective and understanding as a critical part of right view. But is not "no shortcuts" part of right view as well?
