Have you ever felt that you’re being watched? Well, in a way, you are! But there’s nothing to worry about, because it’s only your most pure unbridled Self that’s watching. All thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensations and actions are known by this. The conscious source from which all thoughts arise, is aware even of the thought which thinks: ‘I am.’ It’s this ‘I am’ thought, which gets wrapped up in all sorts of definitions, and becomes ‘I am this”, or “I am that.” Eventually becoming burdened by these definitions, it seeks to free itself from these labels, and to know itself as it truly is.
But what is this ‘I am’ that’s seeking? It’s only a thought, an idea. All the troubles and triumphs, good times and bad, birth and death, seeking and finding, all belong to the ‘I am’ thought. You’ve never been an estranged seeker. You’ve never been merely a thought independent of consciousness. You’ve never been separated from your true Self, your pure nature. What you truly are, has been watching the drama of thoughts the entire time, watching the troubles and triumphs, good times and bad, birth and death, seeking and finding. And what a show they have put on!
