BELIEVE TO SEE

An art project directed by Gaby Herbstein

  • Supported by
SEE +

I chose photography 25 years ago. Along the way, I came to realize what images generate. I understood that they can transmit a subtle vibration, a frequency that tunes in to the forces of creation and connects us with our Soul.
My work gained a deeper meaning, it gave me the opportunity to sow seeds of consciousness through what I show to the world.
I took that responsibility and I used my inspiration to give life to this project.
Believe to See is the expression of the invisible, the network that holds us together as one, what many call Faith.
To portray the leaders is to seek their essence. Each master, each message, each experience is a new point of view and contributes to create a space of spirituality and diversity of creeds.
There is still a long way to go and I keep moving forward. I keep creating a space of encounter, unity and connection.

Gaby Herbstein

We belong to the same Source. Humans, animals, plants, earth, we all have a common origin. When we believe that we are better, when we use our power to cause chaos and destruction, we generate division. We get disconnected.
Today, we are awakening. Today we can change.

BUT HOW?

EXPANDING OUR CONSCIOUSNESS

When you are conscious, every one of your actions, every thought, every feeling, even the slightest, makes a difference and helps to raise awareness in others. Start with yourself and it will spread.

WHAT IS BELIEVE TO SEE?

Believe to See is a multidisciplinary artistic project led by the Argentinian Photographer Gaby Herbstein, that spreads the voice of 12 spiritual leaders of different beliefs, philosophies and cultures from around the world.

/ / WHAT IS BELIEVE TO SEE?

BELIEVE TO SEE is on social networks and will also be on the streets. We are planning an art exhibition, a documentary film and a book. Different means to show the path to awakening the power of collective transformation and to contribute to improving the planet by honouring unity and diversity.

QUESTION 3:

What is illness, what is the origin?

THE ORIGIN OF ILLNESS IS OUR MIND.

My grandmother was a doctor, when I grew up I asked her "how do you know they have illness?” and she said,

“They probably have seen things, they shouldn't have seen.
They probably have heard things, they shouldn't have heard.
They probably have smell things, they shouldn't smell.
They probably have said thing, they shouldn't said.
They probably have felt thing, they shouldn't feel.
They probably have been thinking thoughts, they shouldn't have think.
... And they probably felt things in their heart, they shouldn't feel".

/ / SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was born in Thanjavur, India, on May 13, 1956. At the age of four, he was able recite some verses of the Bhagavad-gītā, the Hindu Holy Book. His first teacher was Sudhakar Chaturvedi, who also collaborated with Mahatma Gandhi. In 1981, after a period of ten days of silence on the banks of the Bhadra River, Ravi conceived the Sudarshan Kriya, a breathing technique that is the cornerstone of the Art of Living courses, the humanitarian organization he created later the same year. The Art of Living carries out activities related to health, education and disaster relief. Currently, the Foundation is located in 155 countries, is as a United Nations non-governmental organization and its volunteer work is one of the largest in the world. In 1997, he co-founded the International Association for Human Values (IAHV), implementing sustainable development projects for the promotion of human values and the coordination of initiatives to resolve military conflicts.

"My mission is to see the world as an United Family, a happy family. I want to see waves of happiness generated in every village, in every city, in every home."

QUESTION 2:

How would you define death?
Does it really exist?

Well if you really analyze, in your body every moment, every day, some cells are dying and new cells are being born. So life and death is a continuous process in your body that is happening. Every day new cells are being born, old cells are dying. In one year all the cells in our body have undergone changes. The cells you have in your body today, one year later, they're all dead and gone.

SO DEATH IS PART OF CREATION.

I would say transformation exists because there is death and we need to die in every moment from the past, it’s similar in the mind also. So many events are happening in life and we are dying for older past events and then born from new events for the future.
