Miksang Institute Day 2

It was day 2 at the Miksang Institute and we learned an exercise called Human Camera.   It's considered the most important, fundamental exercise in this practice.   Basically you stand, relaxed and close your eyes.  When you mind is still for a moment you turn randomly and slowly open your eyes.   As soon as you start to label or judge what you are seeing, or other thoughts enter you head, you gently close your eyes.   After doing this we went out and again shot color.   It's fun and amazing to see what everyone comes back with.  Below are some of my shots from today.  The first image wasn't for the color assignment --- just a "flash of perception" as we call it this morning at the pool.
