I’ve been told that I have a little bit of a pre-digital eye. This is not a statement that I’m proud of. In fact, I’m downright ashamed of this. I’m not sure I’m fully awake to say this, but I do have an eye to see. I’m not as aware as I should be, and I’m not that great at understanding my visual environment.
I feel like this is not a bad thing at all. If you are a visual person, seeing is an action, not a state.
I don’t know what the purpose is for anyone to have an “eye.” It’s a little like when you have a dog. If you train a dog to look at something, when you get him out of the house he will never look at anything but his toys. This is not to say that animals do not have visual awareness. They do. It is just that they have a limited visual world. Humans have a much more expansive visual world.
The more visual we become, the more we notice. And the less we notice, the more we become aware. In essence, we are constantly in a state of being aware. We can’t really get rid of it.
In the real world, if your dog is not a pet, it is not a pet, it is not a walking dog. But if you train the pet dog to look at something, when you get him out of the house he will never look at anything but his toys.
The same principle applies to our visual world. In the real world, we are aware of the world around us, but we are unaware of the world around us. You can’t really get rid of your awareness. We can’t be rid of our awareness. And if we really want to be rid of it, then we have to be rid of our awareness. It’s just that we don’t do that.
The problem is that many of us do not really WANT to be rid of our awareness, or at least that is not what we believe it to be. But we have to fight against our awareness. We have to fight against our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions. We have to fight against our self-awareness if we want to be rid of it.
I think the first step in taking that fight out of your life is to realize that your habits, routines, impulses, and reactions are actually not as important as your consciousness. Many people believe that they are, but it is a much more complex process than that. If you can let go of the notion that you are “that,” you can then let go of your habits, routines, impulses, and reactions. You can then let go of your consciousness.
This is a very difficult concept to let go of, but it is true. There is a natural disconnect between the unconscious and the conscious. The unconscious is where your memories and thoughts are, while the conscious is where you are physically, and everything else your brain is doing. The best way to learn to let go of the self is to figure out what your conscious mind is doing and stop it.
This is a great video from an experiment I did a long time ago. It’s called “The Conscious vs. The Unconscious” and it’s basically a set of exercises that help you figure out what your conscious mind is doing and then stop all of it.
