Seeing without the mind

Seeing the world, for the first time, with total wonder and amazement. Seeing that brings complete joy and euphoria. That’s how a baby sees.

It does not label from the mind as it does not yet have the words for what it sees. We however, label everything we see and as the mind sees it we look at things within the noisy mind stream. We look and the labelling word is spoken by the mind and it’s thoughts blind the vision with its unconsciousness.

If we choose to, we can look without labelling, without thought, as a baby does. Then we truly see with our soul and we can enjoy the wonder and amazement of pure consciousness and sight untainted by the minds story.

Lenses

The lenses we choose to see the world through are based on a judgement of others and ourselves that stems from our mind. They completely shape how we see things and the actions of others. They also affect our own self-esteem and worth.

If we stay conscious and in the moment that is now, that means away from our mind and evaluation, then all the lenses are removed and we see the world clearly as it is without any taint.
