Excerpt About Eyes
What is this something that we live in? What is it that exists? What is true existence? We need to be careful not to give this something that we are exploring a name right away because then we just turn it into another concept in our mental world. To be able to look with fresh eyes, we need to look without the mind that labels. When you label what your eyes see, the associations come with the label, and from that, all your reactions and emotions and identifications. You want to be able to look without labeling, and thus to be free from having to react in the old ways. To see things without concepts, without the fixed elements of what we call the world, is the only way of knowing what is really here. As long as we see the world through old concepts, we will see our old concepts actualized again.
