Don’t Look for Anything Else

Book coverIn the state of mindfulness, your mind should look at both its going and staying. Other than that there is nothing else to cultivate. It suffices if awareness recognizes the nature of everything that arises. Apart from this you do not need to search somewhere else for more quality or clarity… Don’t put aside what you have and look elsewhere for what you don’t have. Just watch the identity of awareness, no matter what it thinks or where it goes. Don’t give importance to whether the awareness is clear or not. Avoid stopping thought movement and pursuing stillness. Whatever stillness there is and no matter what arises, just sustain their natural flow at their own pace, without tainting it with alterations. Without allowing yourself to forget undistracted mindfulness even for a moment, persevere in maintaining its prevalence.
