A pen which is used to write.
A pen which is used as a chew toy.
Which is right?
To a human, a pen is to write.
To a dog, a pen is a chew toy.
So, a ‘pen’, the quality of ‘pen-ness,’ is not inherent in the object(pen) – it is coming from the mind of the being who sees it.
The mind creates my experience, always….
We make meaning based on not what we see or hear but based on our own mental patterns.
