BE Wide Open
“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
As often as you can remember, be fully attentive.
Attention negates thinking. When you are aware, you cannot worry.
Becoming self-aware turns off your mind and, with it, your problems. Gaining stability in awareness improves everything. Awareness will run your life, if you let it.
Once you have learned how to do something, the best way to do it is give it your full attention. Thinking, rather than paying attention to what is happening, is the sole reason for failure.
This changed me radically: Begin everything with full attention, and no task will be difficult.
Stop asking why. Be aware and know that you exist, without the need to understand why. A great many problems self-resolve when you stop asking why.
Full of wonder… this little guy and his sister.
Reminding yourself to be aware becomes less necessary with practice. That is because awareness if free of conflict, and who doesn’t want less conflict?
Everyone unknowingly wants equilibrium. After all, everything naturally seeks it. The road of equilibrium is free of desire, and therefore silent.
I’m a relentless experimenter. I’ve found that the best way to be is powerfully aware and WIDE OPEN to what each moment has to offer.
Comments are welcome, and all questions will be answered.
A new topic will arrive each Friday afternoon, in one of two categories. One will be on shooting, and the other will be on living. Or: how I learned to live from what I learned by competing.
Thanks for coming in.
