about the moth, i guess i can kinda relate to that. once there was a grasshopper sitting on the hood of my jeep when i came out of a gas station. by the time i was at the drive through at a fast food place he was hanging on sideways just outside the driver's side window "looking" at me.
when i got home he moved back to the hood and as i walked to my door he followed me to the door. i stood there with the door open but he didn't come in, just sat there for a bit and then i closed the door.

Don't cling to anything and don't reject anything: Let come what comes
and accommodate yourself to that, whatever it is. If good mental images
arise, that is fine. If bad mental images arise, that is fine, too. Look on all
of it as equal. Don't fight with what you experience, just observe it all
When the meditator perceives any sensory object, he is not to dwell upon
it in the ordinary way. He should rather examine the very
process of perception itself. He should watch the feelings that arise and
the mental activities that follow. He should note the changes that occur in
his own consciousness as a result. In watching all these phenomena, the
meditator must be aware of the universality of what he is seeing. That
initial perception will spark pleasant, unpleasant or neutral feelings. That is
a universal phenomenon. It occurs in the mind of others just as it does in
his, and he should see that clearly.
