Look at the Mind

Try to leave your mind vividly in a natural state,
without thinking of what happened in the past
or of what you are planning for the future,
without generating any conceptuality…

With persistent practice,
consciousness may eventually be perceived or felt
as an entity of mere luminosity and knowing…
As long as the mind does not encounter the external circumstance of conceptuality,
it will abide empty without anything appearing in it,
like clear water.
