And we must close our eyes.
When the screens in front of us go blank, we have a better chance to become aware of another screen, a screen “behind our eyes,” the screen of the mind. Then, if we sit quietly, watching the breath or reciting a holy ones or lovers name, that inner screen will empty out until it appears formless and radiant. And once we make contact with this bright, empty mind, our craving for fresh screens comes to a stop. We enter a state, where we have nothing to achieve and nowhere left to go.
Eventually you might or might not return to the phone, when this occurs, let us believe that the work is done, and the screen we are engaged with is not the one in front of our eyes, but behind our eyes. The screen of being.
