"If you wish to be happy, no one can stop you. Similarly, if you wish to be free, no one can stop you. In fact the universe encourages and supports your freedom. Why? Because to be happy and free is your natural state."

Autism Awareness Month

I see a lot of ‘REBLOG BECAUSE IT’S A SCREAMER’ for April, but I have not once seen this. This is my reblog, this is what I stand for.

I’m reblogging this because this affects me. :)

"Without consciousness there would, practically speaking, be no world, for the world exists as such only in so far as it is consciously reflected and considered by a psyche. Consciousness is a precondition of being."

Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self (1958)

Very similar to the opening to The Dhammapada. - DS

The mask depicted above is hollow. One side is concave the other, convex. However despite how hard we try we can only see two concave faces. This is an optical illusion

So why does this happen? The brain is said to have specific regions dedicated to processing faces. We know that faces are convex from our experience and knowledge so our brain processes it in a way that makes sense to us and matches our expectations. 

This is so strong that it entirely over rides reality even when we are aware that what we are seeing is wrong, it is impossible to stop ourselves from perceiving it as a convex protruding face!

However this optical illusion actually fails to work on those with schizophrenia.  This is to do with their unique way of processing information.

"What you refer to as your “life” should more accurately be called your “life situation.” It is psychological time: past and future. Certain things in the past didn’t go the way you wanted them to go. You are still resisting what happened in the past and now you’re resisting what is. Hope is what keeps you going, but hope keeps you focused on the future, and this continued focus perpetuates your denial of the Now and therefore your unhappiness.
Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real."
