The Doors of Perception
If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.
William Blake is postulating here, that our perception of the existance is narrowed down to a cavern like image of it. This is quite obviousely true, our senses do not reach into all spheres of the existance and even with the help of science we cannot reach it all. He further postulates, that if the doors of perception where opened fully, we would reach a glimpse of it all, of god, of deity, of the grant architect or however we care to call it. Well, I do not need to follow all that way deep into some belief or another to get added Value in my life out of this little statement.
This Blog is going to be a record of my personal cleansing of my “doors of perception” and the subsequent changes in my style of life.
