FACTOR # 24. And the viewpoints are never seen. And the viewpoints consider more and more that the dimension points are valuable. And the viewpoints try to become the anchor points and forget that they can create more points and space and forms. Thus comes about scarcity. And the dimension points can perish and so the viewpoints assume that they, too, can perish.

We see the universe but not the universal viewpoint. The universal viewpoint lies in the clarity of perception of the universe. As the perception becomes unclear, many speculations, assumptions, beliefs and agreements enter the picture. They introduce subjectivity and the viewpoint starts to become narrow and occluded.

The longing for clarity is always there. The speculations that seem to promise clarity, become valuable as beliefs and one starts to depend on them. One forgets that the actual clarity lies beyond any speculation or assumption. Thus, comes about fixations and one starts to think that letting go of such beliefs will also be the end of oneself.

KHTK FACTOR # 24: The viewpoint is defined by its ability to perceive the dimension points. Absence of clarity leads to dependence on fixed beliefs. Letting go of such beliefs may feel like the end of life.



As a person’s speculations and assumptions become fixed, they appear as prejudices, beliefs and all kinds of agreements. Such fixations then influence that person’s perception and become a part of his life.

Such fixations can become so strong that letting them go may seem to that person as if he is losing his life. But that person has the ability to reexamine those beliefs and adjust them toward greater continuity, harmony and consistency.
