Watch like a watch

On each moment we have to renew ourselves as the clock goes. I don't know Sanskrit so well, but how to attain detachment is to watch or to gaze at something—upeksha. They say. Upeksha means to watch. To watch means to follow reality -- to follow reality like a clock goes. It does not go so fast, but it is not stopping. It is moving, but it doesn't go so fast.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-07-00 as found on shunryusuzuki.comEdited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more. - Go to What's New [now at blogger] to see more daily posts. 

Upeksha in Wikipedia - a liberal interpretation on Suzuki's part, but that doesn't matter. What matters is that he's saying to watch reality is the key. - dc
