Always the image originates from that, which has happened in the past.
If it is a pleasant image, we cling to it.
If it is a painful image, we want to get rid of it.
In this way the desire arises, the will to power: one image we want to keep, the other we want to reject.
All this brings along conflict.
But if you are all this present in passive listening, you can observe it clearly without keeping it or pushing it away, without commenting, prioritising or sorting, only observing and feeling, and then you yourself can find out what it is all about.
Then you don't live as shown by some psychotherapist, priest or politician.
