Getting active focus seems to be the hardest part of the Endmyopia course. I know that I struggled to get it initially. I think the way not to do it is to try to get it. Forcing the eyes to see is what gets you into myopia in the first place, exacerbated by the curse of corrective lenses. Instead let it happen. The most memorable part of Jake’s advice for me was “contemplate the blur”. Let the eyes look, take in the blur, explore what is in your full range of vision. It’s the movement of the head and the eyes together which brings increasing clarity; initially as “clear flashes”.
Confirmation of this comes from other sources as well as my own experience. There’s an interesting guy called Mark Warren who, starting with what he called “Rocking”, gained clearer flashes which become more permanent through noticing constant oppositional movement in the full range of his vision including the periphery. Another vision practitioner, Nathan Oxenfeld, refers to the “universal swing” in our vision. Confirmation of Jake’s wisdom: other people reaching the same conclusion.
Don’t force it, notice the movement and let your eyes take in what they see.
