The only real differences in the two views is one creates suffering and is done in ignorance and the other is lived in the awareness of ignorance. Today my view is as it is because the selfish distractions don’t control me as they once did. They’re still there I’m not as controlled by it.

The clear view that occurs is a by product of awareness and as the selfish view is let go of, it opens up space to allow wisdom and insights to occur. This opening is directly linked to the letting go of selfish attachments. It’s the self that attaches and it’s the cause of all suffering. Ever so slowing when one begins to look inward the distractions of selfishness fall away. To me this is what was revealed to the great mystics who were considered special, all they did was look inward. This looking inward is available to all, but one will have to overcome the selfish view to not be distracted from it.
