Attention now is the highest form of spirituality

It all comes down to this:

ATTENTION.

The attention I speak about is not the kind of deliberate focus generated by a specific interest. I am paying attention to you cause I have a purpose to achieve with you, I am paying attention to something because that is beneficial to me, in short, whenever I am paying attention due to whatever reason, that is not attention. That is conditioning. That is limiting choice. Hypocrisy. Annoying “self-improvement”…

ATTENTION, real attention is non-deliberateness. It is perfect watchfulness with no particular reason.

I am aware that this is very hard for the common Western mind to grasp, as this would be easily mixed up with idleness. But it has nothing to do with neither sloth or passivity.

Attention is purposeless but active awareness. It follows swiftly and effortlessly every subtle inner or outer movement, as its pulse is The Moment.
This is maybe hard to get, but attention is the space between a moment and the other.
It is non-identification, it is non-interest, non-attachment, “The Void” of perfect quietness.

ATTENTION DOESN´T THINK, ATTENTION WATCHES. Only our mind thinks, and never watches.
Can you get this…?

Attention is not a graspable thought, as thought is whim and self-complacency. Attention is this Now, this actual movement, Attention is your eyes reading this. Hopefully without misinterpreting me…

THE MIND IS A BAD INTERPRETER!

Our mind is in a continuous state of inner turmoil due to ceaseless thinking, and that is why
it is not capable of any accurate perception.
Our mind is caught in its sickening illusion – whatever it touches, it contaminates.

The moment the mind understands its hopeless predicament, it´s the arising of Attention.
Only this delicate but sharp and penetrating Attention can question the mind.
Only this effortless Watchfulness can dispassionately see and discern the suffering and the madness of our graceless, depraved Mind today.

UNWAVERING ATTENTION NOW IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF LOVE.

Only this disinterested and dispassionate Attention can see Love. And Love is not about “self-improvement”,
progress or “becoming”. Perfection needs no fixing. Love – like Attention –  doesn´t need “to grow”. .

Yes my friend, Love is the glorious now-twinkling of your eye. 🙂
