OBSERVATION is nothing but a process to look at an object, person or something to gain information.
Observation is not simple viewing. What perhaps distinguishes a commoner from an edge above person is nothing but this skill to observe minutely.
It all begins with a focused approach and above all curiosity, to look at things critically.
Here a clarification needs to be mentioned. Minute and focused observation being a stepping stone to develop this skill doesn’t ask for a pre-decided and set framework to approach phenomena around.
It requires the capacity to keenly observe without personal inclinations and biases affecting one’s ability to see.
It can only come with an attitude of acceptance of self and other’s both.
It requires the mind to think and perceive beyond perceived and yet maintain the objectivity of one’s perception by regulating self and the other’s out there.
