When the ear hears, observe the mind. Does it get caught up and make a story out of the sound? Is it disturbed? You can know this, stay with it, be aware. At times you may want to escape from the sounds, but that is not the way out. You must escape through awareness. -Ajahn Chah, "Still Forest Pool"

absorbed in the moment

The greatest support we can have is mindfulness, which means being totally present
in each moment. If the mind remains centered, it cannot make up stories about the
injustice of the world or one's friends, or about one's desires or sorrows. All
these stories could fill many volumes, but when we are mindful such verbalizations
stop. Being mindful means being fully absorbed in the moment, leaving no room for
anything else. We are filled with the momentary happening, whatever it is--standing
or sitting or lying down, feeling pleasure or pain--and we maintain a nonjudgmental
awareness, a "just knowing."

-Ayya Khema, "Be an Island"

you are lightcyan

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
