We don’t normally use Present Continuous with stative verbs.
I can see a group of people crossing the street
Now I understand why he did it
However, in present-day English the outlines of this rule are becoming more and more vague. For example, when speaking about an unexpected new pattern or a changed behavior that is in progress:
“For the first time in my lifetime I am seeing people rolling up their sleeves in way that I haven’t seen and really trying to figure this out, and that’s the source of pride I was talking about,” she continued.
“What I am seeing is devastating — these women and children have risked everything to come to this Somalia camp, just to get food,” Jackson said. “They need our help.”
Again, I have no direct knowledge of this, but this is what I am understanding.
