To be aware is an extraordinary state of mind

To be aware of your surroundings, of the trees, the bird that is singing, the sunset behind you.

To be aware of the beauty of the land, the ripple of the water, – just to be aware, choicelessly.

Please do this as you are going along. Listen to these birds; do not name, do not recognize the species, but just listen to the sound.

Listen to the movement of your own thoughts; do not control them, do not shape them,do not say:” this is right, that is wrong”

Just move with them.

That is awareness in which there is no choice, no condemnation, no judgement, no comparison or interpretation, only mere observation.

That makes your mind highly sensitive.

The moment you go name, you have gone back, your mind becomes dull, because that is what you are used to.

——J. Krishnamurti

My heart is like a face,
one half white, one half shadow.
I can choose to let you see,
I can choose let you not see it as well.
The world is like a large circus,
make you thrilled, make me panic,
because I know, in the end,
it is gentle but painful.

——Charles Chaplin

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

——Steve Jobs
