Detached Observer

"It is far better to observe than to absorb every word, feeling and attitude, to get over-involved, or react too much.
Observing gives us the patience and clarity to think and act appropriately.
Observing creates an inner focus that allows us to see reality."

  1. It has been my goal for a long time to simply be an observer, without judgement or engagement. On the all too rare occasions when I succeed, the result is peace.

    Thank you for another valuable reminder.

    Hugs,
    Betty

  2. Hi surjit! Cute pic. nice post. It reminds me of my grandchild who said. " less talk less mistake. No talk no mistake. If you can create joy don't create sorrow. Talking too much is self projection." Listening accumulates knowledge. May God bless you always my friend.

  7. i agree with you Surjit, I often like to be a detached observer in life, soaking in the knowledge, the wisdom and the lessons life has to offer.

    When the time comes that we may be called to participate more actively in it...then we would be armed with useful information.

    God bless you always =)

  9. In the maze of imagination, once you start obseving with Discernment, you start every day off with a smile that will bring light to people around you.

  11. LOVE this quotation and the picture, Surjit. It is true that if we react too much, it's our own loss in the end. But if we take time to separate ourselves from the situation or the other person and think first, we'll be able to see everything in a better or wider perspective. :-))))
