"You don't have to believe everything you think."   (view our quote database)

What is it that watches the breath?

What is it that watches the breath?
Does it have preferences?
Does it decide for itself, "This is pleasant, that is not"?
Or do those thoughts arise like any other?
From out of nowhere, unbidden, to subside momentarily into nothing.

When happiness arises, the watching is unchanged.
When sorrow comes, seeing is untainted.
The aware process carries sensation, thought, feeling, desire, aversion, absorbing nothing, faithfully reflecting whatever arises.

What is, is.
