upstream

Panther Meadow spring smallerThe phrase, “going upstream” popped up as a thought while I was meditating in the morning sunshine at Northwest Sufi Camp in August, 2007.

Upstream–prior to thought. Like the source of a spring, that arises out of the ground as though from nowhere. This image played with me for a few years.

What is that, that notices prior to the mind commenting?
