In the space we’ve created, we begin to observe with new eyes. (Speaking of space, be sure you’ve read and practiced Step 4 so you can apply it to this step.)
The previous steps prepared us to look deeply. Now, we open our eyes to really see.
Step 5: See
The fifth step, see, is to sense without story. We recognize thoughts exactly as they are: harmless mental concepts. We can appreciate what we take in through our eyes without making it something it’s not (nonsense).
We are responsible for what we see and how we see it. We know that what we see is being interpreted through our lenses, our perspective, subject to our labels and beliefs.
