The constant mental chattering: “I like this, but not that”, “I want that, but not this”, “I am this, but not that”. Is that you who is chatting away? Is it you who defines life, dividing it into what’s good and bad, desirable and undesirable, between what’s ‘me’ and ‘not me’?
Do you notice any common thread between all these thoughts? They’re all in reference to the word ‘I’. Are you this ‘I’? Are you a word? An idea? Is there someone there who is speaking the contents of thoughts? Where are they? Have you ever wondered where thoughts come from or why they appear? Who or what is silently aware of this mental narrative as the words continuously appear from out of nowhere and disappear back into nothing? Do these stories which words create have anything to do with you?
