Filters or augmenters?

At a recent Shifting Gears workshop, a participant observed that when we see ‘As it is’, not only do we ‘see’ what we want to see, we also create what we want to see. In other words we filter and augment what is available with our fears and fantasies thus creating our very own experience. That may not matter too much except that we then act upon it as if it were real; and this leads to all sort of assumptions about what we observe.
