Just look without thought

Just look without thought

I wonder if you have ever walked along a crowded street, or a lonely road, and just looked at things without thought? There is a state of observation without the interference of thought. Though you are aware of everything about you, and you recognize the person, the mountain, the tree, or the oncoming car, yet the mind is not functioning in the usual pattern of thought. I don't know if this has ever happened to you. Do try it sometime when you are driving or walking. Just look without thought; observe without the reaction which breeds thought. Though you recognize color and form, though you see the stream, the car, the goat, the bus, there is no reaction, but merely negative observation; and that very state of so-called negative observation is action. Such a mind can utilize knowledge in carrying out what it has to do, but it is free of thought in the sense that it is not functioning in terms of reaction. With such a mind, a mind that is attentive without reaction, you can go to the office, and all the rest of it. - Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. XIV, 205, Choiceless Awareness

Is Kamma  obstacle?
or Mind?
සතුටින්/ සැහැල්ලුවෙන්
ඇති බාධාව
නැතිනම් මනසද (සිතුවිලිද)?

Voice that doesn't use words- Nilambe

Voice that doesn't use words- Nilambe
සුන්දර සොබාදහම නිළඹේ
වචන නැති වුවද
ගස්වල, සතුන්ගේ, සුළගේ
ශබ්දය පිරී ඇත.
