For those of us with vision, who have had our eyes trained on the world with our mind’s eye, we can be it. We aren’t even thinking about it. We just see it. And what we see, we do.
We can also be it if we want to be. After all, being aware of our surroundings is part of being human. We can also be it if we want to be.
It seems that a lot of people with sight can be it too. Just because you can see something doesnt mean you should.
I think I would rather be me then a guy with vision. I could be a guy with vision, I could be me.
We think a lot about being a guy with vision, but are you really so sure that being able to see is all that it takes to be you? We can be it, just like we can read and write. However, we are also not. We also could be me. We could be the guy with vision who makes a living as an artist. We could be the guy with vision who has a job that pays the rent.
We’ve all been there, I know I have. I know I am. But being able to see is not the same thing as being able to be. In fact, it’s probably the very thing that makes us so different from, say, a guy with vision.
In the past few days we’ve been asking ourselves, “How could we not be me?” This week, we’ll be asking ourselves, “How could we not be me?” We’re not me. We’re not the guy with vision who makes a living as an artist. We’re the guy with vision who makes a living, you know, reading and writing stuff. We’re the guy with vision who has a job that pays the rent.
Being able to see and being able to be are two very different things. If you’re not having trouble seeing someone, you’re not going to be able to see them. And if you’re not having trouble being, you’re not going to be able to be.
Our website suggests that this whole idea of “if you can see it you can be it” is the crux of the concept of “self-awareness.” If you can see something, then you can be it.
That’s not to say we don’t have some of our best writing in the world. We have some very beautiful videos and some very well-written prose. But the truth is that if you can see something, you can be it. You can see how the world works. You can see how your view of a character or a world makes them perform at their proper level. You can see the actions of your characters as they are able to perform.
