‘Seeing’ is constant for human beings. There are three modes: First, when we are awake, our physical eyes are open and we look out into the visible world; second, when we are asleep, our physical eyes are closed and we see dreams with our spiritual eyes; and finally, when we meditate, we see into our selves and the deep unconscious storehouse.
Seeing is our constant nature whatever mode our ‘eyes’ are in. Even the blind can ‘see’ constantly.
Even though the conditions in all dimensions are constantly in flux, seeing does not change. It is our core steadiness. It is ever-present.
You—the seer—are eternally witnessing all this fluidity and if you know this ever-present spectator well, then you know your True Nature. Everything else is alien to this. Everything else is impermanent- some call it ‘samsara,’ the delusional world.
Total knowing of the Seer—you, the eternal witness—comes from non-action and from non-doing. When there is no object to be seen—in other words, when we have emptied our temporal minds through meditating within—the veil drops, and we are free from the material world.
Notice that if sight is related to an object that is seen, it becomes a thought swathed in words. But if the sight is unrelated to the object and free of it, then it turns towards the seer and is a wordless meditation.
A thought needs two—the thinker and the object of thought. Whereas, meditation needs only one—the Seer.
So please, today, as you look out into the world, realize that the visible world will separate you away if you let it—subject and object—and words, thoughts, memories and speculations will crowd into your mind to create a false reality. So, take a little time to look within and you will find your are One with the visible and the invisible realms—this is reality.
