How do I see?

Introduction

In this video I have tried to discuss how we see the world. I have talked about the two main ways we see the world:

  1. From internal towards outside (How we see something)
  2. From outside towards in (How we “think” world see us)

I’ve tried to convey the dillusion and confusion this can lead to, also acknowledging that I am no guru in it. I felt this was a good topic for a discussion.

So please leave any comments, or feedback.

I hope you enjoy this video.

00:00:00,240 –> 00:00:04,720
good morning my name is nimesh from

2
00:00:02,960 –> 00:00:07,359
melbourne australia

3
00:00:04,720 –> 00:00:08,320
today i also thought again that i’ll do

4
00:00:07,359 –> 00:00:11,280
a youtube video

5
00:00:08,320 –> 00:00:13,519
as a instead of writing a blog so

6
00:00:11,280 –> 00:00:17,760
today’s topic i chose

7
00:00:13,519 –> 00:00:20,560
uh how do i see now what i noticed

8
00:00:17,760 –> 00:00:22,400
a couple of days ago actually last night

9
00:00:20,560 –> 00:00:26,640
quite strongly

10
00:00:22,400 –> 00:00:31,359
is that there’s two ways i see the world

11
00:00:26,640 –> 00:00:36,640
first one is from inside outwards

12
00:00:31,359 –> 00:00:39,680
and more often than not inside outward

13
00:00:36,640 –> 00:00:40,879
you notice either something you you find

14
00:00:39,680 –> 00:00:43,760
really beautiful

15
00:00:40,879 –> 00:00:44,640
or pleasing or you find something that

16
00:00:43,760 –> 00:00:47,680
is

17
00:00:44,640 –> 00:00:49,600
not so pleasing and and you see

18
00:00:47,680 –> 00:00:51,520
many other things but i think you

19
00:00:49,600 –> 00:00:55,520
concentrate on those two extremes

20
00:00:51,520 –> 00:00:58,719
a lot more and those

21
00:00:55,520 –> 00:00:59,840
memories then later once we’ve finished

22
00:00:58,719 –> 00:01:01,920
with it

23
00:00:59,840 –> 00:01:03,199
then starts the process of seeing from

24
00:01:01,920 –> 00:01:05,199
outside in

25
00:01:03,199 –> 00:01:06,400
at least for myself where if it is a

26
00:01:05,199 –> 00:01:08,720
pleasing

27
00:01:06,400 –> 00:01:11,600
thought and if it involved an

28
00:01:08,720 –> 00:01:15,520
interaction of some description

29
00:01:11,600 –> 00:01:19,280
then you start to imagine what how they

30
00:01:15,520 –> 00:01:20,479
saw you so and it’s completely an

31
00:01:19,280 –> 00:01:22,720
imagination

32
00:01:20,479 –> 00:01:23,840
and it’s an interpretation more often

33
00:01:22,720 –> 00:01:26,960
than not

34
00:01:23,840 –> 00:01:27,840
this interpretation can go vastly wrong

35
00:01:26,960 –> 00:01:30,720
because

36
00:01:27,840 –> 00:01:32,560
we don’t know they’re they’re them at

37
00:01:30,720 –> 00:01:35,920
all we don’t know how they see

38
00:01:32,560 –> 00:01:38,960
from there inside to outside towards us

39
00:01:35,920 –> 00:01:41,040
but these two

40
00:01:38,960 –> 00:01:42,799
methods of seeing the world although has

41
00:01:41,040 –> 00:01:43,920
its benefits there’s a fly bothering me

42
00:01:42,799 –> 00:01:47,520
actually

43
00:01:43,920 –> 00:01:50,560
although it has its benefits uh

44
00:01:47,520 –> 00:01:54,560
can also cause quite a bit of

45
00:01:50,560 –> 00:01:56,240
delusion um even how we see the world

46
00:01:54,560 –> 00:01:59,280
like from inside outwards

47
00:01:56,240 –> 00:02:01,680
uh now unless we are seeing

48
00:01:59,280 –> 00:02:02,719
uh like let’s take a simple object like

49
00:02:01,680 –> 00:02:08,319
a flower

50
00:02:02,719 –> 00:02:10,319
now we we don’t call a flower a

51
00:02:08,319 –> 00:02:12,400
a sentient being from a buddhist

52
00:02:10,319 –> 00:02:14,560
scripture point of view

53
00:02:12,400 –> 00:02:15,760
so we we assume the flower can’t think

54
00:02:14,560 –> 00:02:18,080
clear can’t see

55
00:02:15,760 –> 00:02:18,959
et cetera and probably scientifically

56
00:02:18,080 –> 00:02:21,760
also those

57
00:02:18,959 –> 00:02:22,480
facts are proven so but when we look at

58
00:02:21,760 –> 00:02:24,640
a flower

59
00:02:22,480 –> 00:02:26,400
we call it beautiful we see the colors

60
00:02:24,640 –> 00:02:29,680
we see all the things

61
00:02:26,400 –> 00:02:30,640
but have you ever wondered what the

62
00:02:29,680 –> 00:02:33,680
flower era

63
00:02:30,640 –> 00:02:34,840
thinks of that that itself is the beauty

64
00:02:33,680 –> 00:02:38,480
of the flower

65
00:02:34,840 –> 00:02:40,319
but we if we start to imagine

66
00:02:38,480 –> 00:02:43,519
what the flower is going to see in us

67
00:02:40,319 –> 00:02:47,280
instead of flower being itself

68
00:02:43,519 –> 00:02:49,440
how vastly could get things get diluted

69
00:02:47,280 –> 00:02:50,400
have i mastered this art of any of what

70
00:02:49,440 –> 00:02:54,160
i’m saying

71
00:02:50,400 –> 00:02:56,239
definitely no and my own observations

72
00:02:54,160 –> 00:02:58,000
are what i blog about

73
00:02:56,239 –> 00:02:59,760
sometimes i get thoroughly confused

74
00:02:58,000 –> 00:03:01,760
about all those things and then i go

75
00:02:59,760 –> 00:03:05,040
okay let’s just be very present and just

76
00:03:01,760 –> 00:03:09,440
observe what’s around us

77
00:03:05,040 –> 00:03:12,640
and related to this topic i also noticed

78
00:03:09,440 –> 00:03:15,599
actually yeah i did notice a little baby

79
00:03:12,640 –> 00:03:16,959
once here with the mother i’m sitting in

80
00:03:15,599 –> 00:03:19,840
the over my most favorite i will just

81
00:03:16,959 –> 00:03:19,840
let me show you around

82
00:03:20,080 –> 00:03:24,319
my most favorite oval near my house and

83
00:03:22,640 –> 00:03:25,519
what i noticed was the baby the minute

84
00:03:24,319 –> 00:03:28,400
the the mother kept

85
00:03:25,519 –> 00:03:29,440
the little one on on the ground it just

86
00:03:28,400 –> 00:03:31,360
started running

87
00:03:29,440 –> 00:03:32,879
across the street like you could across

88
00:03:31,360 –> 00:03:34,239
the field you couldn’t even imagine that

89
00:03:32,879 –> 00:03:36,080
it could do that

90
00:03:34,239 –> 00:03:37,440
that fast and the mother started running

91
00:03:36,080 –> 00:03:39,519
behind it and i

92
00:03:37,440 –> 00:03:41,599
if you sit and wonder what they would

93
00:03:39,519 –> 00:03:43,599
have taught

94
00:03:41,599 –> 00:03:45,680
the little baby wouldn’t have even seen

95
00:03:43,599 –> 00:03:46,319
the grass or the flowers or the things

96
00:03:45,680 –> 00:03:49,440
that i

97
00:03:46,319 –> 00:03:49,920
noticed it would have just seen space so

98
00:03:49,440 –> 00:03:53,120
much

99
00:03:49,920 –> 00:03:55,599
space there’s so much and

100
00:03:53,120 –> 00:03:57,760
just running probably is an expression

101
00:03:55,599 –> 00:04:01,120
of

102
00:03:57,760 –> 00:04:02,879
this is so good um how often do we do

103
00:04:01,120 –> 00:04:04,560
that

104
00:04:02,879 –> 00:04:06,080
it’s it’s instead we are in our own

105
00:04:04,560 –> 00:04:08,480
minds or

106
00:04:06,080 –> 00:04:10,319
or just like what i’m doing now thinking

107
00:04:08,480 –> 00:04:12,879
about a past experience and

108
00:04:10,319 –> 00:04:13,439
talking to you is it bad is it good i

109
00:04:12,879 –> 00:04:14,959
don’t know

110
00:04:13,439 –> 00:04:17,120
but i thought it’s a good topic to

111
00:04:14,959 –> 00:04:19,919
discuss

112
00:04:17,120 –> 00:04:21,280
i hope you you took something out of

113
00:04:19,919 –> 00:04:23,840
this

114
00:04:21,280 –> 00:04:24,639
food for thinking uh some spiritual

115
00:04:23,840 –> 00:04:28,800
gurus will

116
00:04:24,639 –> 00:04:30,800
critique the food for thinking but uh

117
00:04:28,800 –> 00:04:32,400
this is who i am and this is what my

118
00:04:30,800 –> 00:04:35,680
mind does so

119
00:04:32,400 –> 00:04:37,600
i’ll lay them in front of you

120
00:04:35,680 –> 00:04:41,120
