Breathing and your mind
#10
It's good to notice thoughts as they come up, because it means you're not identifying fully with every thought that comes up, or in other words you notice them as something separate from yourself.

Seeing in a sense really is a physical process, in the sense that it is a function of your body. Even though we like to think of seeing as a mental process and attribute improvement in vision to mental changes, seeing and thinking in words don't go well together. What I'm getting at is people with vision problems are consumed by their thoughts and have less grounding in being physically here, both themselves physically and other things that they can sense by seeing, hearing, etc. Virtually everyone has this problem somewhat, but I think people with blurry vision have it to a greater degree, or more constantly, not being comfortable in their own skin and what's around them, and having to escape to their thoughts. Even with glasses, they don't see things. They're away in their own little world.

So it's not that words are bad. But thoughts as words are the medium that the mind uses, and participating in the mind is how you become less physically present. Consider Bruce Lee - He completely focused on his physical body to have complete control over it, getting it to work better and better, and it worked. I used to think of various ways of forgetting about the eyes as the way to better vision, but I don't agree with that anymore. But self-control isn't about having minute control over every little muscle in your body, as in, for example, thinking about your eye muscles and trying to relax them or move them in a certain way. That would be a mess. It's about connecting your body to your will, which comes by constantly paying attention to it. Bruce Lee described something alone the lines of how it was as if he could punch just by thinking it, and it's well known that he could punch faster than anyone has ever seen, and that he was practically unbeatable. I'm not suggesting that going to that level is necessary just to see. What I'm saying is seeing clearly is a relatively easy step along that kind of path.
