“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
-Leonardo da Vinci
“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
What do you see? What is left out, not acknowledged, missed? In recent posts I’ve focused on the small wonders – tiny flowers and sparkling raindrops. Taking time with these wonders have reignited my passion for seeing with the heart. Taking the time, focusing the attention, allowing feelings to inform the seeing, engaging the heart, will always deepen the experience.
In taking the extra time, focus and attention is there a feeling just under the surface of sight? A whole huge world can unfurl and unfold in that moment of heart seeing.
Carlos Castenada in his studies with the Yaqui sorcerer Don Juan, learned the definition of “seeing” as: “perceiving energy directly as it moves through the universe”. (He certainly was taking “seeing” to a whole new level of awareness!).
It is possible to feel the energy moving through the universe and to increase our depth of seeing and feeling our world. Taking a long sweet breath, go out to this day, this one and only new day, and see what’s new and what’s been there all along…see with the heart.
“One day with life and heart is more than time enough to find a world.”
