Who is looking through your eyes?
Be with this experience for a moment.
The real you has been with you since the day you were born. Some call it your soul, your essence, or your presence. It doesn’t matter what you call it, but it’s important to know it’s the aspect of you that doesn’t change while everything else around you does.
The "real" you is the one who is aware of your ever-changing body and calls it home. The real you is the one who witnesses, experiences, or observes your thoughts, feelings, actions and experiences. When you say,
I am feeling happy
, it's the I. The I is that awareness beyond the thought. It’s the real you. Your body, thoughts, and emotions are only the expression of that I.
Turn your attention again to the one listening, seeing, and witnessing.
is your presence: it’s a clear and simple awareness. And though now you might be aware of this presence for only a fleeting moment, after these days of the Feast and practicing regularly, your intimacy with this will deepen. It’s stable, wise, ever present, and dependable.
Eventually this, your soul, becomes your reference point by which you navigate life; it’s an inner compass that transforms the way you see yourself and the way you respond to the world
. I call this being soul-centered. Although a subtle shift, it is so powerful, it will transform your life.
