A simple metaphor, the story of the two birds illustrates the shift from the personal doer, caught up in daily life, to the neutral, impersonal observing presence.
“Don’t try to stop the mind, let him run, if you don’t log into that activity and just observe, the mind becomes farther away and the observing space comes into focus.
At first it might seem that this is too passive, mind will say, ‘You are not doing anything at all, your are pretending, what’s all this spirituality?’
Just be aware of that and continue seeing that’s just another voice arising in the space of observing. I don’t want to tell you anything more, discover what it is.”
