The Real You

The mind grasps various thoughts appearing in consciousness and says "This is me," or "This is not me." Rarely does the mind step back and consider the consciousness itself that provides thoughts the mind accepts or rejects.

You have happy thoughts one day and sad thoughts the next. But what is that awareness that knows both the happy thoughts and the sad thoughts? That awareness can look back and see that the mind was happy one day and sad the next, but it does not identify with either state.

That awareness, that open field in which happy or sad thoughts appear, is the real you. It is the observer of the various states, but is not one of them. That awareness is the real you.

Our lives are experiments with illusion. When we've had enough of samsara, then we seek the truth.

Awareness Has Jiva Lenses

"You are what you consider yourself to be," until you go looking for the Truth. Then, if persistent, and lucky, and grace strikes, you discover that you can be nothing but pure awareness, looking through whatever lens the jiva chose.

Beyond Thought and Feeling

Anything that can be thought or felt is not It, because It is that which knows the thought or feeling. That which knows is beyond thought or feeling. It can only be the undefinable, ineffable, devoid of any attachment. It is the "I" of all. Pure Awareness.
