Silently watch (or observe) its changing.
You might ask why not change. In my opinion, the statement indicates:
one is watching or observing an on-going event or process. To emphasize the "on-going", it is better to use "changing" instead of "change". Even though both (changing or change) seem to carry the meaning of the Chinese statement. By the if you use "change", it is in its noun form, not verb, so it loses the action in the meaning.
Silently watching (or observing) its change,
Here I use "watching or observing" is like the first translation, One of the
actions needs to be a continuous process. If it is not "watch" then it shall be "change".
Both translations carry slightly difference in meaning, try to figure out the difference on your own.

I like to change this sentence "one is watching or observing ..." to
One watch (or is watching) or observe (or is observing) ...
I think, this way it can give a better correspondence to the explanation to my second translation.

it shall be
One watches (or is watching) or Observes (or is observing)

It is amazing, just a simple phrase, there are so many nice translation ! I think, if one doesn't want to use his own brain, it would be a waste that his parents gave that to him.Source(s): self
