The other day, things got pretty heavy, it seemed like everything was sort of crumbling and the thoughts were dark and heavy and it was as if everyone was against "me." However, in the torrents of the wave, something showed up and it came like a thought, but it wasn’t a thought, it was an obviousness that the attention was being placed on the phenomenal world and not on what the world appears in.
Instantly everything changed, all the drama disappeared, it could still be seen, but not as the main thing … the main thing is the Stillness/Peace that one can place the attention on in any moment and in any situation. When you forget that it is there to do that with; it will show up. Once it does, you naturally begin to place your attention there yet again and becomes something that you are Vigilant for.
This is the blessing of beginning to watch where the attention is. Is it on Stillness, THAT which you reside in or the thoughts that appear that tell you instead of revealing to you what you reside in?
Stillness is before the thoughts; the thoughts are in IT. All one need to in any situation or event is place the attention there and then come from that Space ... then you are a bringer of Peace/Stillness to all situations you appear in.
