Continuation from Being a Witness (Part 1)......

Observe all the events in life as a witness. Observe everything happening inside the body as a witness. Reaching this state (of being a witness) takes time. It takes time for the heat of desires, for the restlessness arising from various distortions to settle down within. The greater is the steadiness in being a witness, greater is the joy and bliss that springs from within.

In the same way, become a witness to your thoughts and feelings also. Now this does not mean that you struggle to get rid of certain thoughts or feelings when they arise. For example, if some desire arises, if lust. or anger, or greed, or jealousy, etc., arises then just observe it. If you resist or try to get rid of it, you will actually end up becoming a puppet in its hands rather than becoming free of it. Then you will become the active and engaged participant in the scene. You will become the protagonist, the player, instead of just watching the play.

Just remember that you neither have to remove it nor get entangled and engaged in it. Be a witness and observe whatever is happening. You experience a great sense peace and relief.
