If you are not your mind, then what are you?
What if your mind is ego disguised as the rational, logical, all-knowing entity? And that voice keeps you in safe, stuck and in negative thoughts.
Who would you be without this voice?
Eckhart says - 'not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don't realize this because almost everyone is suffering from it, so it is considered normal.'
When you believe that you are your mind it begins to use you and you get out of touch with 'what is'. 'What is' is the present moment and there are no problems in this moment. Is there? Problems are only past and future illusions which are not real. Only the present moment is real, and now this, and now this...
He asks -'can you be free of your mind whenever you want to? Have you found the 'off' button?'
Finding the 'off button' can be as simple as observing the entity or the voice. When you do 'you realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken'. Today 'watch the thinker'.
