Playing No Roles But Itself
"When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of person you are, the dog is not judging you, dog is at a stage of consciousness prior to the arrival of thought. So the dog IS — and that state has certain similarities with the state of presence, in which is the state of going beyond thinking.
You can sense spirit that's out there in nature. But you can only sense it because you already have it within you. It's that in you that responds, that senses it. Only people whose mind is not totally noisy can actually be aware of silence. And so I sometimes observe, I see people who are jogging or walking their dogs, and very few are really there. They're talking on the phone, they have headphones on, they're talking to their friends and all that immersive thinking."
