I finished The Zen of Seeing by Frederick Franck and the last paragraphs were so beautiful I feel obligated to share. Plus if I document it here I will have it forever. I hope it’s OK to copy this. He wrote:
“This life is my windfall! That it happens to be a human life is the one chance in a trillion to be able to realize That Which Really Matters.
In seeing/drawing, that which matters can be perceived through the senses, not denied but maximally affirmed.
While seeing/drawing I glimpse into Nature, I taste Nature, The Nature of Reality. THE WAY OF SEEING IS A WAY OF KNOWING!” -Frederick Franck
I would ask – What is your seeing/drawing?
