Read an Excerpt:
Master Sung Tzu smilingly stared at the demoralized boy. “Don’t worry. The Great Forest has sent you to the right place. I’ll help you. Close your eyes and tell me what you see?”
Siba closed his eyes and replied, “I don’t see anything. It’s just dark and black.”
“Try harder. Try to see what’s going on in your body, in your mind, in your thoughts.”
“No, Master. I still don’t see anything.”
“You can’t see because you are not focused. Let’s say, focus on a dog. Do you see it now?”
“Yes, Master. I see Limpoo.”
“Limpoo? What’s Limpoo? I said dog.”
“Limpoo is my dog. I see him running toward me.”
“Oh! Ok! Where is he running? On the road or the ground? Where?”
“Nowhere. He’s just running on a black background. There’s nothing else, only him.”
“That’s enough. Open your eyes. That black background is your mind’s eye and part of it formed the colorful moving image of the dog. Some say, it’s the third eye. You can visualize anything in that eye. In fact, whatever your two eyes see, their image is actually formed in your mind’s eye. Not only the eyes but the processing of information from your other senses also takes place there. Your sensory organs are just tools to collect outside information. It’s the mind’s eye, which actually sees, smells, tastes, hears, and feels.”
