SEEING’S NOT BELIEVING
“Here’s a new take on an old saying: “Seeing’s not believing.” That’s true. When we see something, we don’t have to believe in it, but we do have to see it properly. We have to look at it—then it might be true. In sharpening our perception completely and properly, we don’t have to put philosophical or metaphysical jargon into it. We are just dealing precisely and directly with how our perception or vision works as we look at an object and how our mind changes by looking at it.”
“New Sight” in Chogyam Trungpa, True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art, page 69.
“The basic principle of photography is viewing things as they are in their own ordinary nature. We should be willing to see a particular vision without expectation or conceptualization. We should have the perspective of being willing to take any kind of good old, bad old shot. We should be extremely careful and inquisitive about what we see in our world: what we see with our eyes, what we actually perceive, both how we see and what we see.”
