Paying close attention

in stillness and in silence
lie all the answers
of your wavering mind.

If you relax and close your eyes, and you pay attention to the sensations of the body, and pay attention to sounds ‘outside’ the body, you will realize they both come out of the same field of awareness. Does the sound of the plane in the distance take longer to reach you than the twitch in your leg? No, they both arise at the same time.
The body, just like the rest of the world, arises out of the same field.

That field is what you are permanently, eternally. Not the temporary body, not the changing thoughts/mind, but the awareness that always knows it is. Don’t confuse the body and its senses with That which knows the body and its senses.

Paying close attention, being aware of awareness, will reveal the truth.
