Seeing Things as They AreSeeing Things as They Are

In general, they had a choice between the Representative Theory, adopted by
Locke and Descartes, which says you do not see objects but only representations
of objects, or the Phenomenalism or Idealism of Berkeley and his successors.

This book provides a comprehensive account of the intentionality of perceptual experience. With special emphasis on vision Searle explains how the raw phenomenology of perception sets the content and the conditions of satisfaction of experience. The central question concerns the relation between the subjective conscious perceptual field and the objective perceptual field. Everything in the objective field is either perceived or can be perceived. Nothing in the subjective field is perceived nor can be perceived precisely because the events in the subjective field consist of the perceivings , whether veridical or not, of the events in the objective field. Searle begins by criticizing the classical theories of perception and identifies a single fallacy, what he calls the Bad Argument, as the source of nearly all of the confusions in the history of the philosophy of perception. He next justifies the claim that perceptual experiences have presentational intentionality and shows how this justifies the direct realism of his account. In the central theoretical chapters, he shows how it is possible that the raw phenomenology must necessarily determine certain form of intentionality. Searle introduces, in detail, the distinction between different levels of perception from the basic level to the higher levels and shows the internal relation between the features of the experience and the states of affairs presented by the experience. The account applies not just to language possessing human beings but to infants and conscious animals. He also discusses how the account relates to certain traditional puzzles about spectrum inversion, color and size constancy and the brain-in-the-vat thought experiments. In the final chapters he explains and refutes Disjunctivist theories of perception, explains the role of unconscious perception, and concludes by discussing traditional problems of perception such as skepticism.

A Course in Miracles contains a program of study whose completion promises inner peace. Its curriculum is designed to rid us of fear and return us to love. Its three volumes amount to a massive 1200 plus pages of theory and practice. Students of the Course find the Text, the volume in which the Course's philosophy is laid out across a vast and tortuous terrain of theory, particularly difficult to navigate. Another Way of Seeing guides you across that terrain by identifying the basic tenets of the Course.Devoting each chapter to one basic teaching, Another Way of Seeing explains the Course in clear and simple terms. It then does what no other book on the Course has done so far-it illustrates the Course at work. Each chapter concludes with a discussion of a piece of classical literature that shows the principles of the Course put into practice. Dr. Poresky, a literary scholar and professor, brings her appreciation and knowledge of A Course in Miracles together with her conviction that literature teaches us about ourselves and our relationships with others, and by combining the two, she shows you another way of seeing.

Seeing Jesus doesn’t just speak with prophetic hope for what your future will eventually mean, it actually identifies your present hang-up points and gives clear actions/solutions that empower you to step into your future now! Seeing Jesus is full of fresh insights, revelatory passages, and scriptural exposition of authentic fivefold ministry that creates a pathway to the “radical now”—a place of unadulterated discipleship and unimpeded church life. With a strong biblical foundation and straightforward sense of your world, pastor and author Ron Larson pinpoints the mission and condition of the Church, ignites your God-given passion for truth, and releases the Body of Christ into its intended destiny. Easy to digest, yet thought-provoking, direct, yet sensitive to the ministry of grace, Seeing Jesus is a manual for revolution—one that insists on seeing Christ’s fullness immediately in the Church. It is a blueprint for restoring the shine of God’s design to individuals and churches—one that gives clarity to leaders, unleashes the prophetic heart, and restores wounded shepherds and sheep.

“Do you see what I see?” is a book designed to reveal the principles of Godly wisdom needed to establish, maintain and guard our self esteem. We are made in the image of God; so male or female we are beautiful inside and out. The word of God say’s in Psalm 50:2, “From Zion, perfect in beauty God shines forth.” (KJV) This is a classic description of self esteem established from biblical principles. This does not come from a manual of intellectual rules. The book speaks to readers about our mind, our heart, the principles, and the foundation on which we build our self esteem. The book also explains the difference between authentic and camouflaged self esteem, men who suffer from low self esteem and walking in the beauty of godly self esteem. Believe it or not there are women in the Body of Christ who are suffering from low self esteem. They come to church Sunday after Sunday dressed up, flawless make-up, hair flowing or stacked and inside they have no idea who they really are because there is so much pain and torment. The outward appearance is dressed up to hide what is on the inside. But the devil is a liar, what is outside should just be an enhancement of the beauty that is on the inside of them. The two must link up; the inside and outside have to connect in order to walk in the truth of God given self esteem. Self esteem is the inner strength, confidence, and beauty that we possess as human beings. It is not arrogant or haughty it is powerful. The enemy wants to take this from you. The bible says, the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). The enemy hates God’s children, and the self esteem that reflects the glory of Jesus Christ blinds him from seeing and getting a shot to destroy it. The building up of self esteem starts in the mind. When a woman looks into the mirror, if she likes what she sees then her thoughts register and it is displayed outwardly. If she doesn’t like what she sees, she first analyzes if it is something she can quickly fix; such as a small flaw. Anything beyond her immediate control causes her to develop a complex which begins to develop in her subconscious mind and travels to her heart. This is the plan of the enemy leading to the destruction of her self esteem. The enemy seeks to devour our self esteem. His mission is to attack us with low self esteem in order to entangle us and hold us captive. He plays tricks with our minds to try to make us believe his lies. It is imperative that we do not come into agreement with him. Our mind and our thoughts must be subject to the Lord Jesus Christ. We have the power to command every thought that comes in our mind to be subject to Jesus Christ. We have to guard our hearts. God tells us in His word to guard our hearts for out of it springs the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23). In other words it is what is in our hearts that show people who we really are. This is why we must be hidden in Christ; our place of refuge. He will keep us in His care so that who He say’s we are, will reflect to those who see us. As long as we walk this earth we will have enemies. King David was a giant killer. He defeated his enemies because the confidence inside of him came from God. The more confident we become, the more the enemy will try to destroy our self esteem. However, we already have power over him and his tactics so there is no need to fear him. In order to be all that God has created us to be we must build our self esteem on His foundation, it is a sure and eternal foundation. Self Esteem established by God is authentic. There used to be a saying, “Is it live or is it Memorex?” Is the sound of what we hear live, real, is it recorded, or is it someone else’s voice? Camouflaged self esteem is derived from someone else’s voice. Authentic self esteem is eccentric. Its beauty is exuberant. The principles of godly self esteem are not gender specific. God created men in His image and beauty so that same truth applies to men

A brilliant and daring piece of scholarship, this book will raise eyebrows and spark much debate. It does not simply break new ground, it breaks all the rules ultimately compelling us to examine and embrace scholarship in fresh, innovative ways. Seeing Red is based on Pauline Sameshima's doctoral dissertation, Winner of the 2007 Arts Based Educational Research (ABER) Outstanding Dissertation Award by the American Educational Research Association (AERA). This award is for the best dissertation that explores, is an exemplar of, and pushes the boundaries of arts based educational research. The book showcases a PhD dissertation written in the form of an epistolary bildungsroman a didactic novel of personal developmental journeying. The work is a fiction (letters from a graduate student to the professor she is in love with) embedded in developmental understanding of living the life of a teacher researcher. The work shares the possibilities of how artful research informs processes of scholarly inquiry and honours the reader's multi-perspective as integral to the research project's transformative potential. Parallax is the apparent change of location of an object against a background due to a change in observer position or perspective shift. The concept of parallax encourages researchers and teachers to acknowledge and value the power of their own and their readers and students' shifting subjectivities and situatedness which directly influence the constructs of perception, interpretation, and learning. The novel format ties themes and characters together just as storytelling can bind theory and practice. Norman Denzin (2005) supports the pedagogical and libratory nature of the critical democratic storytelling imagination. He hails this book as ..". bold, innovative, a wild, transformative text, ... almost unruly, a new vision for critical, reflexive inquiry." The love story and issues of teacher/learner role boundaries are controversial and largely unspoken of in educational settings and the letter format is voyeuristic. In this sense, the audience is being given a peek, a look at the unrevealed. One of the advantages of the epistolary novel is its semblance of reality and the difficulty for readers to distinguish the text from genuine correspondence (Wurzbach, 1969). The genre allows the reader access to the writing character's intimate thoughts without perceived interference from the author's manipulation and conveys events with dramatic and sensational immediacy (Carafi, 1997)."

Is God a God of love or a God of fear? I believe God is a God of love, so this book was written to clearly show that God is a God of love and that He does not teach through fear or use fear in any way. The ancient angry, jealous, and fearful God depicted in many writings does not reflect his true image. God is a God of peace. God is a God of harmony. God is a God of everlasting joy.

One of the most remarkable things about seeing is how effortless this complex task appears to be. This book provides a comprehensive overview of research on the myriad complexities of this task. Coverage includes such classic topics as color, spatial, and binocular vision, areas that have seen a recent explosion of new information such as motion vision, image formation and sampling, and areas where new tools have allowed a better investigation into processes (e.g. neural representation of shape, visual attention). Seeing is a needed reference for researchers specializing in visual perception and is suitable for advance courses on vision.

Advaita and nondual teachings are about finding the Truth. This Truth is not a dogma that you study; it is the Truth about life †the Truth about who you really are. This Truth is discovered, not learned. It is discovered through sincerely inquiring, Who am I? What you discover is that who you are has nothing to do with self-images or roles and everything to do with what you experience when you ask this question. What you discover is that who you think of yourself as is just that †a thought! And beyond that thought is a great Mystery †an experience of nothingness, which is your true nature.Nothing Personal leads you to the experience of your true nature and helps you explore its depth. Through exposition, questions and dialogues, it brings you to a place of realization of the Truth: you are that spacious Awareness in which everything appears, including your thoughts and feelings. Your thoughts and feelings do not define you but merely appear within Consciousness along with everything else. This Consciousness is who you are.Nothing Personal offers a gentle and persistent guide to seeing the underlying truth of your ultimate nature. In this concisely edited collection of satsang talks and dialogues, you are invited to honor the limitless love that is your true nature and to enjoy the sweet richness that is revealed when you give this Truth your undivided attention.From the introduction:Unlike most books, this one is not meant to add to your knowledge or understanding. It is about the Truth that cannot be spoken or written. Although the Truth cannot be contained in this or any other book, each word written here is intended to point you toward that Truth. Many of the words and ideas may seem paradoxical or contradictory because what they point to is larger than our conceptual frameworks. Many questions are asked, which are not answered anywhere in the book. Find out what the experience is like to ask yourself these questions, even if they leave you emptier of knowledge and understanding. In this emptying, you just may discover what you are looking for.The Truth is revealed when we allow ourselves to not know, so I invite you to set aside all that you know for the time being and allow yourself to look with innocent eyes at what the words are attempting to unveil. Take the time to experience the unspoken truth in each section before moving on to the next. Resist the temptation to read these words with your mind, which is likely to rush right past the Truth. Allow the words to sink into your heart and reveal the truth of who you are.
