“Pause, Breathe, Witness. Be the silent, objective observer–watch and listen–pause in the gaps between thoughts, words, sounds.” ~ Lisa Pearlman #PearlsOfZen
Just go into the room, sit in the centre of the room, open the doors and windows, and see who comes to visit. You will witness all kinds of scenes and actors, all kinds of temptations and stories, everything imaginable. Your only job is to stay in your seat. You will see it all arise and pass, and out of this, wisdom and understanding will come.
