To observe holistically is to observe - or to listen to the whole content of something. We look at things partically, according to our pleasure, or according to our conditioning, or according to our some iedalistic point of view; we are always look at things fragmentarily. It seems that we never take, or observe, the whole movement of life - like a full river with a great volume of water behind it. It is improtant to understand how the mind creates illusions of self-importance and the various types of illusions which are comforting and safe - atleast for the time being . We look at something with a preconceived idea or belief so that we never really actually see it.
