When driving down the street, does a clear glass windshield ever say, “I would prefer another scene. Choose somewhere else to drive pleas”?
The clear glass never adds to, or complicates, what comes into its field of view, and see only that. In other words, things can be seen as they really are.
Simply noticing is the same – it is pure, raw awareness or perceiving. Like clear glass, this clear awareness is not cluttered with overlay of mental chatter due to beliefs and conditioning. Clear awareness is a silent seeing.
So – the windshield remains clear, no matter what seems to appear in its view.
Notice how the crystal clear glass always is stress-free, too.
It is the same in everyday living when naturally being aware and perceiving – even right here, now.
After the next line, pause reading for a moment. Keep your eyes open, just relax, and without thinking, be aware silently.
This is seeing simply – like clear glass. There is no internal commentary or judgment about what is seen. This is clean perceiving – as it naturally, normally is in Life. It is simple and easy.
It naturally feels light, too, because there is none of the added-on mental weight of thoughts, judgments or feelings. In other words, there are no added burdens, no stress.
It was said earlier that there are certain ways in which Life naturally works. This clear, unburdened seeing or awareness is one of them.
This is the Life and awareness you naturally, normally are.
