The mind constantly organizes its perceptions in order to make sense of a complex world. It condenses massive quantities of information into classes and categories. But when we label what we see, we’re projecting what we expect instead of actually observing what’s there. When we don’t perceive with fresh eyes, we aren’t present. When we’re not present, we’re not living fully. To enhance your presence, imagine that you’re seeing everything, even familiar things, for the first time. Since nothing stays the same anyway, everything you see really is…

New.
