In his book, The Master Speaks, Joel Goldsmith, a leading 20th-century spiritual teacher, tells an interesting story from Hindu scripture.

A man walks into his bathroom and is horrified when he sees a snake. When his eyes had accustomed to the near-darkness, he takes a closer look and sees the “snake” is simply a coiled rope.

                Which is right?

A few days ago, I got an interesting lesson is how deceiving our perception can be. I was at my desk getting ready to open some mail. Looking around for my letter opener, I could not find it.
