.. if you’d follow the water with your eyes,
.. you’d see waves and individual drops …
.. but if you just look and let mind do its work,
.. you’ll see nothing more than the above …
Did you ever watch a landscape/concert/sports-event through the screen of your smart phone? What happened to all those giga-pixels that you didn’t notice?
… but you stored the ‘experience’ for later, and you shared the file so others could glance at your post – for two seconds – and click “like”. Next you might feel good for a minute, and do it again.
When you watch a waterfall,
your mind is no less a screen
between you and reality
than your smart-phone.
Your mind interprets and stores the event.
Mind comments: your mind-voice takes over from the senses,
and stores its description of the experience
while YOU forget to notice the sparkling details.
