+ Your visible image shows your inner truth, so when you're estimating others, what you see is what you get. It therefore becomes critically important to see generously, or you will get only what you see; to see sharply, so that you discern the mix of traits rather than a generalized lump; and to see deeply into dark shadows, or else you will be deceived.
-- James Hillman in The Soul's Code

+ Healing happens when we achieve a level of discernment which gets beyond all the deceptions, prejudices, opinions and judgments which many of us have in abundance.  The truth will set you free.  The truth will make you whole.  The truth will make you heavenly.

We need to transform our vision of reality so that we can see the truth and not illusions.  This takes plenty of stillness, detachment and humility, the Mind practices we explored in SE posts 1 through 64. Now we are exploring Heart practices so that compassion prevails and makes all things new.        

+ Spirituality & Practice offers many resources on the practice of discernment including the quote above.
