only watching

I invite you to watch this flower, to simply watch it for 3 minutes.

I invite you to watch this flower, to simply watch it for 3 minutes.

How many seconds will it be before words driven by thoughts wander into your watching?

Once again. Stay ‘now’ and ‘here,’ keeping the mind quiet and still, for 3 minutes.

Perhaps you could watch for a few seconds, but then your ‘monkey’ mind probably jumped into a phrase, an association, a fact or a memory that this flower provoked, before you knew it. These cerebral diversions are not the flower.

Don’t you long to really know this flower? Such ‘knowing’ is your True Nature but you have become remote to it.

Keep the mind still and many gears will change in your mechanism. You become aware of sounds that you had not noticed. You may feel your heart beating in your chest. Your breath will deepen, its rhythm will change. You may feel a new warmth or sensation……………! Ah, but again, you have lost the flower!
