Moments of clarity

When we say that water tastes good, what we actually mean is that it has no taste. And yet, there is still a presence of something on your tongue, in your senses. 

When we have a moment of clarity, it’s very much like this. Just an open seeing of what’s there, a presence and noticing. But no judgement of good or bad, sweet or sour. No apparent flavor and yet everything is there. 

It’s moments like these that I seek in meditation, and at many times throughout my day. I may fail to see this clarity most of the time, but when I do, I’m glad I have, and I know it has strengthened my ability to be mindful. 

But just like the water on my tongue, these moments are passing. Down they go.
