The True You

Living in the world of objects we are often engaged in a "reality" outside of ourselves and not aware of the inner mechanisms of the psyche.  There is a very loose connection between "out there" and "in here." 

Being out of touch with the body and the mind is not uncommon as we go about our daily lives.  Doing this and that as we navigate through life we tend to focus on objects and events outside of our self rather than being aware of what's going on with our body and our mind. 

Take a moment to inquire within.  Ask yourself, "What am I looking at?"  And then ask yourself, "Who is the 'I' that is doing the looking?"  Notice, you are observing the 'I' which is doing the looking.  There is an awareness or a knowing of the presence of an observer.  You are the awareness of all this observing.  Another way of saying this is, you are aware of the awareness. 

If you go this far you will notice there is no difference between the observer and the observed (object).  They are both objects made of the same stuff.  And you may also notice there is a vast emptiness surrounding the awareness which is the true you.  Take a moment to dwell within the emptiness before going back to you objective world.  This practice will allow you to inch a little bit closer, each time, to a freer and more relaxed life.
