The thinking mind
is a useful and powerful tool,
but it is also very limiting
when it takes over my life completely,
when I don't realize
that it is only a small aspect of the consciousness
that I am.
Wisdom is not a product of thought.
The deep knowing that is wisdom
arises through the simple act
of my giving someone or something
my full attention.
Attention is primordial intelligence,
It dissolves the barriers created by conceptual thought,
and with this comes my recognition
that nothing exists in and by itself.
It joins the perceiver and the perceived
in a unifying ﬁeld of awareness.
Attention is the healer of separation.
