Reality and all its little complications are actually fairly simple to perceive. It is the anxiety and subjective responses which complicate their being countenanced. What good is worrying about what you perceive yourself lacking the ability to influence? So also, the intelligent but unwise mammal believes that to preserve itself it must deny itself.

To perceive the world with the same clarity an astronaut perceives the vacuum, and the various mechanical, procedural, habitual and material layers separating it from himself. To see the world the same way: family, nation, humanity, Earth. That approaches, but does not touch, wisdom.
