"As you go deeper into yourself, you will naturally come to realize that there is an aspect of your being that is always there and never changes. This is your sense of awareness, your consciousness. It is this awareness that is aware of your thoughts, experiences the ebb and flow of your emotions, and receives your physical senses. This is the root of Self. You are not your thoughts; you are aware of your thoughts. You are not your emotions; you feel your emotions. You are not your body; you look at it in the mirror and experience this world through its eyes and ears. You are the conscious being who is aware that you are aware of all these inner and outer things." (from Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, p.128)
Does this excerpt blow your mind? Difficult to grasp? It seems that most of the presenting issues that people experience day in and day out, are all based on the disillusionment that they ARE their thoughts, their emotions, their bodies. "I am not good enough, I am sad, I am fat." And these notions create their reality. What if you tried this theory by Singer on for size for a day, a week. (If you haven't read his book on the New York Times bestseller list, I highly recommend it.) Life isn't about the "stuff" you think it is. Let go of the clinging to thoughts, emotions, body and if you're awake, you will find your SELF. Life gets more full of living presently when you do. Easier said then done... and still worth doing.
