Three difficulties in becoming aware

There are three difficulties in becoming aware .
The first difficulty is to become aware while the act is happening .The second difficulty is to catch hold when the thought is arising in you .The third difficulty is to catch hold before it becomes a thought .These are very essential for each seeker to understand .In fact everybody becomes aware , but only when the act is finished .You have been angry - you slapped your wife or you threw a pillow at your husband .Later on when the heat is cooled , the moment has passed , you become aware .But now it is pointless , now nothing can be done .What has been done cannot be undone ; it is too late .

Osho from "The Book of Wisdom" .
