For the next few minutes give yourself a break and just sit there watching your thoughts.
Become like a cat relaxed and attentively watching the mouse hole. . . . . . . .
Notice how thoughts just pop up randomly .
Repeat the exercise again ,give yourself a few minutes more.
By practicing this exercise you will become more and more aware of the witness or the awareness that you are. That which never changes , which is ever present . The awareness that watches your thoughts and feelings and is unaffected by them.
Paradoxically becoming more identified with the awareness does not deaden our experience of this world but frees us to be more fully involved because we no longer believe that our thoughts and feelings are us. We know that we are much more ,what we are is eternal and wordless.
