The Watcher

If we are unaware of our thoughts, emotions and actions, we move through life like conditioned robots. We are buffeted between fear and desire, programmed to respond in a certain way since birth. The programming continues throughout our life, until we awaken.

The media barrages our unconscious mind with the desire to purchase items which we think will fulfill us, and drugs, which we think will bring us health and well-being. We are brainwashed.

By bringing awareness to our thoughts, emotions and activities, we break the pattern of conditioned responses.

Awareness is simply attention (or observation) without judgment. When we perceive ourselves without making judgments of any kind, we allow the infinite energy of Source to flow through us. Our activities are then in alignment and we will experience a profound peace. There may be some turbulence in our outer lives, but that is because our true selves have been repressed for so long.

Are we the one who is perceiving or the one who is being perceived? We are both, and this bifurcation allows us to become aware that we are much, much greater than we think we are.

Let's become mindful of our thoughts, our emotions, and our actions and start truly living.

We search for people or things to fill the hole inside ourselves. We seek status, prestigious jobs, expensive fashions, impressive cars, etc. We try to fill the hole with alcohol, drugs, sex, exercise, work.

The hole cannot be filled because there is no hole. We attempt to attain something which cannot be attained. No matter how successful, popular, powerful or beautiful we are, we do not find fulfillment.

Love is the answer. Not the yearning for someone or some thing. But the realization that love is what we are. By dropping our identity and our notions of who we think we are or want to be, we find ourselves. We can discover our Selves by being present, without thought.

Let's be aware of our true nature.

If we are not living in Heaven right now, we are never going to find the Heaven we think we are looking for.

If we believe that we are working towards achieving a particular state or will someday be there, it will not arrive, because it is what we already are.

No belief can get us there. We cannot learn how to get there. No knowledge can bring us closer.

Only by shedding our beliefs and judgments about it, can we recognize our natural state, which is one with the Eternal.

Let's stop striving for future goals and become what we are, right now.

There is no happiness without unhappiness. Happiness and unhappiness are irrevocably tied.

We can transcend the cycle of happiness and unhappiness. There are no steps that we need to take or lessons that we need to learn to achieve it. It cannot be learned. It cannot be achieved. There is no path to become joyful. It underlies our being.

Joy is our natural state. We can experience joy by surrendering all of our assumptions, judgments and ideas about what we should be doing and how we should be living. By peeling back the layers of who we think we are, we become what we are, joy peace and love.

Let's surrender to joy.
