And so, here is an even easier homework. Your eyes are probably open most of the time during the day. And so, look at whatever is in your view — and do this as many times in a day as you happen to think of it —and in your mind, say, "I see you."
"I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you. I see you."
You are looking at various things all the time. You are not faking yourself into anything by saying this. You are not trying to be a certain sort of way. You are simply teaching yourself to be in the New Now without a lot of extraneous commentary. "I see you. I'm looking at you. I see you. I'm looking at you."
And, when you see, see, see, look, look, look, eventually you start to SEE. The word "seeing" then begins to have more significance than just, "Oh, I see you." It becomes, "Oh, I SEE you!" Like, "I'm beginning to see the SOUL of you," or, "the TRUTH of who you are."
In the movie Avatar that was their greeting. "I see you." When I first saw that movie I thought, "Yay! Go, Jim Cameron. I see you!" In Yoga, the greeting is Namaste. It is pretty much the same. It doesn't literally mean, "I see you." It means, "The light in me — the light of the Awareness that I am, the light of my awareness — sees the light of your presence."
Want to see. Do the practice. Say, "I see you" whenever it occurs to you.

Explanation: Big, bright, and beautiful, a Full Moon near perigee, the closest point in its elliptical orbit around our fair planet, rose on August 10. This remarkable picture records the scene with a dreamlike quality from the east coast of the United States. The picture is actually a composite of 10 digital frames made with exposures from 1/500th second to 1 second long, preserving contrast and detail over a much wider than normal range of brightness. At a perigee distance of a mere 356,896 kilometers, August's Full Moon was the closest, and so the largest and most super, of the three Full Moons nearest perigee in 2014 now popularly known as supermoons. But if you missed August's super supermoon, the next not-quite-so supermoon will be September 8. Then, near the full lunar phase the Moon's perigee will be a slightly more distant 358,387 kilometers. That's only about 0.4 percent less super (farther and smaller) than the super supermoon.
