Open the Eyes




There is a kind of standing-still quality, or stalemate, in which comments and remarks become unimportant, and seeing things as they are becomes the real thing.
 - Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, "True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art"

There are many ways to view something; a new perception, thought, idea. When you're looking over here, something is happening over there. When you're looking over there something is occurring right before your eyes that you're not even recognizing. Open your eyes!
