Have you ever been intraspective and taken a look at yourself. Thought about what you think. Observed your own thoughts. Who was it that was doing the observing ?


1. You are not your mind.

The first time I heard somebody say that,  I didn’t like the sound of it one bit. What else could I be? I had taken for granted that the mental chatter in my head was the central “me” that all the experiences in my life were happening to.

I see quite clearly now that life is nothing but passing experiences, and my thoughts are just one more category of things I experience. Thoughts are no more fundamental than smells, sights and sounds. Like any experience, they arise in my awareness, they have a certain texture, and then they give way to something else.

If you can observe your thoughts just like you can observe other objects, who’s doing the observing? Don’t answer too quickly. This question, and its unspeakable answer, are at the center of all the great religions and spiritual traditions.

Don’t answer too quickly. This question, and its unspeakable (why is it UNSPEAKABLE)  Mind,body,SPIRIT..... Id have to say that a thought is your minds perception in that thing you see (that texture as it states) like the texture of some HOT babe as she walks up to you and says hello and then the awareness rises (ah yes the awareness) and then the spirit that jumps in to tell the brain,down boy ,down..Quote from the late great Ronnie James Dio, Your just a picture,your an image caught in time......Ride the winds my friends ,that magic carpet ride to the desk of your new found wealth manager...Rv this currency you S.O.B's oops sorry,Down boy,Down!!
