Freedom to Look

Watch how the mind judges, critiques, and weighs everything against a conditioned standard that is very familiar and based on self-preservation. Just look and observe. Do not condemn or condone, nor fight or pledge your allegiance to these thoughts. At the same time, pay attention without grasping the body’s reaction to the thoughts or emotions that very subtly arise almost undetected. This is the freedom to look, which must be implemented at the very beginning of the journey, rather than thinking it is a result at the end. It is only when we can truly observe our daily life without interference that a fundamental mutation can take place within it.
