Day 125

Who is that consciousness that is asking the question  of “who is the consciousness that is observing the observer within me”?

Being aware and conscious means that one is able to be an observer of states, thoughts, and emotions instead of being caught up within them or reacting to them.  

It is impossible to be both the observer of states, thoughts, and ideas and at the same time to be caught up within them.  So, when you practice meditation, you are practicing the act of being the observer of what is happening instead of being the target of what is happening.  This does take time, patience, and practice to get good at, but until we gain mastery, let’s continue to be the observer over and over again.  As many times as it takes.  The goal is to start to see that the consciousness that is observing (who and what we are) is separate from the state in which we are observing (the illusion).  We are not our thoughts.  We are not our emotional states.

Then, who is it that we really are?  Well, all I can say is that this question starts making more sense when one gets good at being the observer and asking the question……
