When you think of the person, the aversion arises; when you see that the mind is averse, aversion goes down. Do you see the difference?
Defilements’ object is concept; wisdom’s object is reality. This is the example. Don’t feed the mind the wrong food – don't allow the mind to pay attention to the wrong thing.
At home the ordinary mind only perceives concept objects. As we meditate, we not only know the concepts, but we also start to know what the reality is [yogi’s note: the 6 senses happening]. And we have to remind ourselves to keep the reality in view.
We will still know the concepts, we don’t ignore them. But we must remember to remind ourselves to also recognize the reality, keep our eye on the reality.
