What do you mean by understanding seeing as only a reality?

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 see that there are realities appearing one at a

time. 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

another way of saying that there is “only a reality”. The realities of our lives

are momentary and insignificant. They arise and then disappear forever.
