As I practice watching and observing more, I am aware of the tendency to go beyond observing with my inner commentary. How hilarious as I immediately move out of observing. There is an endless stream of commentary, opinions and judgments that I am learning to also observe and laugh at with compassion for myself. How could I possibly know anything about what I am seeing and why would I want to make something up. What I can do is watch with my neutrality and see if there is anything for me to learn as I watch and enjoy the stillness of just being.
Aren’t we, human beings, funny? The talking parrot inside never stops … and it is LOUD sometimes!
