Mindfulness as Witnessing Capacity

Mindfulness comes down to a WITNESSING CAPACITY.

The piece below came into form as I contemplating the power of witnessing capacity that all of us can develop.


You are the one who


the one who


the one who


the one who


The one who THINKS

is engrossed by THINKING.

The one who FEELS

is captivated by EMOTIONS

The one who ACTS

is busy ACTING.

Only the one who NOTICES

has the capacity to HOLD SPACE

for the one how THINKS, FEELS and ACTS.

From the noticing self, Rumi, the greatest poet in 13th century, voiced the noticer:

“Somewhere beyond right and wrong, there is a garden. I will meet you there.”

From the noticing self, Viktor Frankl, the Holocaust survival, shared his understanding:

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to

choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
