When we hear a sound or see a form, what are we really
hearing and seeing? Usually, itís our conditioning.
Overfamiliarity and habitual judgments can cause us not to
notice that all beings, sentient and insentient, are alive.
How can practice help us start seeing the universeó
instead of just ourselves?
