There is, indeed, a considerable therapeutic value in allowing oneself to be deeply aware of any sight or sound that may arise. For one thing, it brings to mind the marvel of seeing and hearing as such. For another, the profound willingness to listen to or gaze upon anything at all free the mind from fixed preconceptions of beauty, creating, as it were, a free space in which altogether new forms and relationships may emerge.

~ Alan Watts

~ Ram Dass
