Infant Eye

from desolate/delight project, Naropa University, 2011

excerpt from Chapter 4.2, Practices, Five Eye Practice

As babies we saw the world without having names for what we saw. Let a soft gaze roam around in the space without naming. Let the eyes lead the head as it turns on the spine. Look at the ceiling, walls, floor. Stay slow and relaxed. It’s clunky at first. Return to Closed Eyes to rest. Move from Lying Down to Sitting and back to Lying Down.
