via Daily Prompt: Aware

My mind has been involved….working towards conveying the state called “Aware“ness…. graphically… So involved…that my awareness was totally caught unaware 😉

But then…with Google around…. why worry?? An image search helped me zero in with nil effort…

Above image is an indication of the scientific mind…Thoughts…the complex web of thoughts…impulses…the infinite capacity for the mind to continue generating waves and waves and more waves of thoughts and impulses….

And one can spot himself(as in pic)…jumping from one thought to another….continuously…unceasingly…day in and day out…the world/mankind  excels at sliding off from one thought and latching onto another…..

It is said that “Man” has evolved from “Monkeys”….and it is my view that certain characteristics ….certain traces of the source are always left behind….though not strikingly visible 😉

And Man has a knack of entangling himself with thoughts…literally tying himself in knots…with his thoughts….His intensity of involvement(swinging between thoughts) is that of a Jumping Jack or a Tarzan… So much so….that one cannot fall asleep at night…One has to literally “will n pill” oneself to sleep….

The world surely views such an individual as busy..as a Go-To Man..the complete workaholic.. I have no problems with such an individual…unless he ends up as my BOSS 🙂

So coming back to awareness….Just witness yourself gazing into the picture above…or take many print-outs of the same….

And every time a thought crosses your mind….just label the thought…don’t differentiate between good thoughts or bad thoughts…holy or unholy…Simply put…all thoughts are welcome…

Be it thoughts of worry, lust, anger, love, help, wealth, irritability, sex,hate, greed, desire,future,past,god, devil…..all are welcome….You just remain a watcher….an observer….

Thoughts will come… Thoughts will go… Just watch…And soon you would realize that thoughts have always been distant…very distant… It was your identification with the  thoughts….your adoption of the thoughts as yours….

Identified with the thoughts… one is in the pic…(as above)…jumping…swinging….In the world…a man of science…..

Not identified with the thoughts…one is watching the pic(thoughts)….not jumping and swinging any longer….relaxed….a man of spirit….
