All the forms of seeing are generally attached to some intention, to some desire. And if somehow we can achieve this what I call simple seeing or just seeing – Just Seeing – if you can kind of start, if you learn how to rest in this free space or state of you, from where you can see without any intention, then the Truth of life is revealed actually. The Truth of body, Truth of mind, Truth of relations, Truth of sense of identity, Truth of experiencing – everything.
Whenever you see anything inside you, you have some intention to see it, no? Like we want to see, so that we can change it in a certain way and even when we don’t have a kind of explicit desire to change it, still there is some implicit desire that I will keep seeing it and I will become free from it. So still, there is a desire here and so the seeing is not free yet. Only the free seeing, a free look can make you free actually,
Just remember that seeing and intention has to be differentiated. I’m not saying that you remove or separate the intention with the seeing, at the level inside you where it is happening – No. Only see this that my seeing is influenced by or accompanied by intention or originated from intention. And when you can see this, your deeper, more relaxed and free seeing kind of gets activated in you, wakes up in you. This pure seeing, this effortless seeing, this just seeing is that Awareness which is actually, already and always Free.
