Realities are beyond control

Question : What do you mean by understanding seeing as only a reality? Answer : One begins to understand that there is not my seeing which can stay on and which is so important.    The idea of self cannot be eradicated immediately. But one begins to understand that seeing or visible object can only arise when there are conditions for their arising and that one cannot control them.    Realities are beyond control, they cannot arise because of anyone’s wish.    Also awareness and understanding are realities which can only arise when there are the right conditions, they are beyond control. Beyond control is the other way of saying that there is “only a reality”. The realities of our life are momentary and insignificant.    They arise and then disappear forever.
