How to Witness this Moment

"How do you witness this moment?

By allowing it to be exactly as it is.
You do not get involved with it,
dramatize it, analyze it
or try and change it.

You just let your experience
be as it wants to be in this moment
and in that allowing,
naturally there is awareness.
Witness consciousness
reveals itself in that allowing.

Your attention un-contracts
from being stuck in the 'me'
and can relax & expand back
into its true nature
of all encompassing awareness.

In witnessing this moment
you feel yourself as consciousness itself.

Consciousness is
the essential nature of everything
and it is untouched by everything
because it is prior to all experience.

Yet consciousness is felt
as unconditional peace, unconditional bliss,
unconditional love.

That bliss is there at the essence.

And so by witnessing this moment,
you remain as that bliss.

That bliss does not move.
It is the backdrop of everything.

Whatever your experience is
you both feel yourself as that
essential nature of peace
that is transcendent of all experience
and you feel your personal experience
vibrating in that peace.

The two become one.

You no longer are dragged around
by feeling good, feeling bad,
feeling happy, feeling sad.

Those things play themselves out
in consciousness
but there is that constant
vibration of bliss that is consciousness;
that is what you are.

It is not that in witnessing
you are separated from your experience.
Your perception has simply been freed
from identifying solely with personal experience
so it can rest in all-encompassing awareness.

If you are inside the racing car,
then you are frantically steering,
you are whizzing by things,
things are whizzing by you
and you have to make sure you don't crash.

It's all very important.

But if you are on the stands
watching the race take place,
cars are just whizzing by
by themselves.

It really makes no difference
what one car does or doesn't do.
It is all part of the race
that you are a witnessing.

The real freedom is in that watching.

Yet by remaining the witness,
your outer experience is also transformed.
Your outer experience gets permeated
in the bliss of consciousness
and that bliss transforms everything.

But it all begins in that allowing.
You allow and watch this moment.
You allow and feel the sensations.

You watch the thoughts come and go
like cars whizzing by
and automatically
witness consciousness happens.

Clouds in the sky

"Awareness itself is totally unaffected by anything occurring in it and thus when complete identification with awareness takes place karma is powerless! That is to say that although these old thought patterns continue to come up one will no longer be compelled, or constrained, by them. They will just appear as ‘clouds’ scudding across the ‘sky’ of awareness leaving it totally untroubled, for in this case one does not identify with them or take them as indicators of who, or what, one is."
