The Watcher

Coromandel, New Zealand

When we put our attention to what we are thinking and doing, a break occurs between ourselves and our conditioned mind. This is our first taste of freedom.

When we are watching our thoughts and actions, the question arises, who is the watcher and who is being watched? A door opens to the Unmanifested, the Divine. Once the door is opened, it is very difficult to close again. Once our eyes are open, why would we want to close them? We have taken the first step on a journey to become one with who we really are. Of course, no journey is required. Freedom can never be experienced at some point in the future, only in the present. Are we on a journey or are we not? No answer is required. This is merely a paradox that we surrender to.

Answers are only required by our thinking self. Freedom can only be experienced in the space between thoughts. We become comfortable with unanswered questions. We see the great mysteries of the world and allow them to be as they are. Trying to figure them out will not take us where we need to be.

Let's bring our attention to ourselves.
