one's "point of view", the choice of a context for opinions, beliefs and experiences.
What we subject ourselves to with influences of varying sources and degrees with a solid dose of the power of suggestion. It is related to our life experiences with emphasis on importance from slightly to life changing.
It is something we come to from how we individuals "look" at something. Look meaning visual with interpretation due to our cognitive perceptions. It is "our" own "point of view". It deals with what the individual wants, needs, and/or feels.
In order to "get" someone to do something you need to appeal to that persons point of view to surmount obstacles that perspective influences created in that persons life. This will include something like, "What is in it for that person".
Apparently humanity or "Man" requires something in return or what is "good" for that person in order to adjust or modify that persons perspective on anything in life. We motivate by coming from a particular perspective that will meet or exceed a persons perspective.
Being able to see the other person's point of view is one of Henry Fords advice towards being successful in business. "If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view and see things from that person's angle as well as from your own".
All this to convey the importance of the "gokui" in practice as well as life for it alludes to such human perspectives of the individual to enlighten or illuminate is such a way that the individual readily accepts and assimilates some "thing" into their lives.
The gokui is vague in many ways as well as fluid in its influences on the individual as to perceptions and perspectives. Failure to open the mind, body, and spirit to such concepts as the gokui can mean stagnation, being stuck in a "rut", or remaining distant from the moment thus being stuck in a perspective that is completely influences by the "ego" of the past or future with no ability to remain present or in the moment.
One must use the gokui as a means to turn the "eye" of the universe into one's soul which is through that persons perception which can be a fluid as the gokui when growth is allowed. To choose to allow fluidity of perceptions leading to fluidity of perspective which is a way to codify your experiences, to form a particular belief that is also fluid.
One studies the gokui to understand the reality of the moment and no where else can we create this type of ability than through the study of the singular form that is understood as the "way".
The gokui is that singular tool that trains the mind in a singular purpose to achieve continuity that connects it with the strings of energy that is the now or the present; a present moment that is in the now as is the Universe, Sun, Moon, Earth, and humanity (which encompasses all things both animate and inanimate).
Don't let the ego strap your perspective into a brick wall where you continually pound your head but a diaphanous curtain that can be seen through, penetrated, and then re-hung at the next level of life.
Remember that humans are distinct and separate while remaining connected and to allow fluidity in perspective also allows for unrestrained connective-ness to all.
