Observation vs Concentration


Question: Does watching or observing falls under concentration? Watching the mind or thoughts involves an effort. How do you watch it without any effort?

Answer: Watching is not concentration. It is relaxation. Concentration needs effort. That's why it makes you tired. Concentration is focusing your attention on one thing. It's exclusive. It has a choice. Watching is observing everything that is happening. It's inclusive. It is choiceless.

In the beginning, watching the mind needs an effort. Because the mind has become tense due to concentration. The effort is not to concentrate but to relax from the tension. After some time, you will watch without effort.

Watching is not involved. If you are involved in something, you can't watch it. Because to watch something, there should be some distance. To involve, there should be no distance.

When you are involved in something, the other things will disturb you. When you watch, nothing will disturb you. Because you watch everything choicelessly.

Good Morning... Be watchful...💐
