From Dr. Liberman:
"Seeing Holographically

Suppose for a moment that you don’t see with your physical eyes — that you have no single “point of view,” but can see clearly from all places at once. While meditating twenty-five years ago, I actually slipped into this indescribable state — and experienced a miraculous change in my vision.

Although my eyes were closed, I could “see” myself sitting there in meditation — only I couldn’t tell where I was seeing myself from. It was as if the room was filled with eyes, and I was looking through all of them.

When I finally opened my eyes, my vision had undergone a profound change — from barely being able to see the eye chart, to seeing better than normal — and it has remained so to this day. Since I was a practicing optometrist at the time this shift occurred, it forced me to reconsider everything I had ever been taught about vision.

I realized that it is our insight, and not our eyesight, that must be healed if we wish to see clearly — and that only by seeing beyond our beliefs can we truly see clearly.

~ ~ ~

When the "I" stops looking,
the eyes start seeing."
