Watching yourself is the key to all solutions
When tremendous vicissitudes and calamities come, don’t panic! Be still, and for few minutes stand perfectly quiet. Move all your attention from anything happening outside or disturbing you, and watch yourself.
Watching yourself moves from within all your misery and agony of despair.
It lifts your being above the storm, the wreckage and disasters that life apparently seems to create.
Watching yourself, silently turns you into a living dynamo of incredible power,
capable of transforming any trouble, disaster or challenge in a miraculous victory.
You have to find out what pure observation, pure seeing is. You have to find out how to go beyond time, which means how to get rid of inner dialogue, criticism, judging, liking or disliking, accusing, condemning —self-observation makes you attentive, vigilant, and in that attention all sense of the past and future disappears, and with it all concepts, images and descriptions will dissolve.
“You may ask for freedom, for truth or happiness, but not see how factors that govern your being, as love of your negative states, your grievances, your secret jealousies, your laziness, your inner considering, your fears, your doubts, your dislikes and so on, are asking for something else, quite different, and that your inner power is going to realize all that you are secretly willing and unconsciously projecting.”
