“you have also asked about witnessing, watching the breath and where one should watch. Anywhere __ because the question is not where you are watching, the question is that you are watching.
The emphasis is on watching, watchfulness. All those points are just excuses. You can watch the breath at the tip of your nose where the breath goes in, you can watch it while is going in, you can watch it when it returns __ you can watch it anywhere. You can watch thoughts moving inside. The whole point is not to get lost in what you are watching, as if that is important. That is not important.
The important thing is that you are watchful, that you have not forgotten to watch, that you are watching….watching….watching.
And slowly slowly, as the watcher becomes more and more solid, stable, unwavering, a transformation happens. The thing that you were watching disappears.
For the first time, the watcher itself becomes the watched, the observer becomes the observed.
You have come home.”
