Seeing is an Act

 I don't know.  I know Salzmann has excellent thoughts about not having thoughts.  She knows much about not knowing.  I also like David Doane's comments very much.  Being open to seeing, noticing what is, is very important for me.  My earlier training has made me more mechanical in what I do and think, and as I see that, I have a greater chance of becoming  less mechanical and more open to be less of a separate me.  I don't notice what my body tells me as much as what my thinking tells me.  If I pay more attention to my bodily sensations I would probably be wiser and more often realize that I don't know. I notice that anyone trying to say a way to live wisely is difficult since the way that can be said is not the way as Lao Tzu said.  I appreciate your giving me the opportunity to respond and I know II have warm and kind regards for everyone.
