Witnessing

"Just one  quality of the Buddha has to be remembered  i.e. witnessing. 
This small word witnessing contains the whole of spirituality. 
Witness that you are not the body. 
Witness that you are not the mind. 
Witness that you are only a witness.
As the witnessing deepens, you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy."

  1. Yes. Day and night this ideal should be in our mind, in our nerves and every cell of our blood. Just witnessing and separating ourselves from our ego. Or at least understanding it.

  4. Yes . . self-observation, awareness . . . the silent witness, they're simply different words/phrases to describe the same thing. Nice reminder :-)

  5. This is as true as it gets.
    But not witnessing as a thing separated from what one witnesses. By being what is witnessed. Both observer and observed.

    The word is unfortunately often used to describe converting others to one's own religious view, and this is as unproductive as anything could be.
