The science of perception works much like a cause and effect mechanism in our bodies; in that the very act of perceiving the world carries out an action-response to the stimuli we sense. In other words, there’s no passively observing the world as we will always respond to it with movement. And this doesn’t have to be gross movement: like seeing a person in distress and running towards them. It can be a subtle blink of the eyes when we perceive something too bright, or cringing of the internals when see something uncomfortable.
What this really means is that we are constantly and actively responding to our environmental stimuli, not as a conscious thought but as an unconscious neurological process that may become recognized and acted upon.
So some times when we are stuck, all it takes is the ability to see and feel what we might see differently; before action starts to crystallize. Or, create momentum to force yourself to see things differently, for that stuckness to move. Perception is not passive, it is active.
