Observing Thought

August 25th ~ I must love the very thing I am studying.  If you want to understand a child, you must love and not condemn him.  You must play with him, watch his movements, his idiosyncrasies, his ways of behavior; but if you merely condemn, resist, or blame him, there is no comprehension of the child.  Similarly, to understand what is, one must observe what one thinks, feels, and does from moment to moment.  That is the actual.

November 13th, 2019 ~  Observing what is without judging.  You really have to give up the ego and time.  To observe others and oneself takes a tremendous amount of energy and time.   Give up the sense of accomplishing things.  We often are afraid to look at our own mind.  How we think.  It is often scary and taboo.  That is why people go to see their “shrink.”  I really don’t like that word.  It is derogatory.  But it shows we are unable or unwilling to look at ourselves on our own.  We need to go and talks to someone, someone who often times is having trouble looking at their own mind.  At least, they admit it.  Hopefully, they do.   Meditation begins to slow that process down which leads to “aha” moments.
