Observe any reaction and notice that it is machine-like.
Observe awareness. Notice it is a responding.
Look at response. Look at reaction.
Note the distinction and be aware - no matter what the subject is..
It doesn't matter!
It is only awareness that enables us to transcend the reaction.
Sometimes I am a machine, so I had better be aware!
But surely the word "better" is no different than the word "should"!
I need to drop it all by being aware of it, not squashing it or resisting it
as that is just another reaction... Programmed as a computer?
