Attention

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, 
consciousness itself. 
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.
