Quieting Time

See all series | See all talks

Teacher: Rodney Smith
Date: 2007-09-11
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Follow this simple exercise this week: Sit outdoors in nature where everything is moving in a natural rhythm. Allow yourself to slow down and become quietly aligned with that rhythm. Ask what is seeing the movement in front of your eyes (the swaying of trees, the flight of birds, etc). That which sees movement is not moving. Time is movement and it takes the timeless to see time.

Bring your attention from outside to inside yourself, allowing the same nonmoving attention to see what moves inside your mind. Now, looking inward, ask, “What is seeing this mind?”
