TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY
There are always two sides to a story. With regards to the personal story, there's the side where a person believes themselves to be thinking, setting intentions, and acting in line with those decisions. Then there's the other side, where these thoughts which seemingly belong to a person are seen to appear, yet there is no idea where they came from or who thought them up, intentions being set, yet not knowing who or what is behind them, and seeing these decisions acted out, yet never having been involved in any step of the process.
This is always the case, even at this very moment, which is why it’s often said that there's nothing to do, nothing to become, nowhere to go, for this is already how it is. The reason you might think otherwise is because of being caught up in the stories of the doer. These stories do not apply to you, only to the character developed in thought. You are not this character, but the one who knows of them. You are an impersonal witness, always watching yet never partaking. Without your aware presence, there would be no character known. This doesn't mean that the character ceases to exist, just that you're no longer personally invested in the story that is playing out and can just kick back, relax and enjoy the show.
