November 13, 2020--The Witness
Your job is not to make your fear go away,
but simply to acknowledge it as it comes up.
Noticing the fear, you are not that fear.
Noting your attachment to a specific outcome,
you are not the attachment.
Neither indulge your desires nor resist them.
Just notice them and let them pass.
Thoughts and feelings arise in consciousness and fade away.
Nothing in particular makes them come.
Nothing in particular makes them go.
They are simply a diastole,
like the rhythmic movement of the breath
or the drum beat of the heart.
