quiet witness

November 2, 2013

It makes no difference what method you use to clear your mind. The idea is to make your mind quiescent. To make your mind still and calm. When your mind is still and calm you solve the problem.

For all the methods, self-inquiry, breath control, yoga, everything is to quiet the mind. Use whatever method suits you. You can become the witness to your thoughts. You can watch your thoughts as they go by.

When you become the witness and you do not interfere with the thought process, the thoughts automatically disappear by themselves, until they dissipate entirely. You can ask yourself: “To whom comes these thoughts?” What ever method you use is fine.

But by all means do something to still the mind. And again when the mind is still and quiet, everything will take care of itself. The secret is to quiet the mind. Your real nature is self-realization. When the mind is stilled, you just return to your real nature, to what you always were.
