It is extremely difficult to control the thoughts that arise in the mind. Proper control can only be attained with a stilled mind. Hence, it is true what the wise men and women say: “You are what you think”. If you constantly allow illusory thoughts to be in control of your mind, you remain in the prison of the body without the hope or vision of ever transcending these. But the more one thinks in the lines of freedom the more the near the essence Self-Liberation, which is a tricky and most difficult thing to achieve for many.
It is key that one maintains the awareness that they are the solitary Witness of all that Is – the Suchness of all phenomena. This way you become forever free. The inability to see this is the only bondage of all mankind. To think yourself as limited to the body – that which is physically involved in activities – is like the bite of a poisonous snake. But to understand that You, as the Awareness, actually do nothing is the true Wisdom that arises from genuine Faith. This is the only door to true happiness.
Therefore, a simple understanding of “I am Pure Awareness” consumes all delusion and restlessness of the mind in the fire of an instant. That said, you are unbounded Awareness – the source of supreme Bliss – in which the material world appears like the mirage of a snake in a wire cable.
These are the keys to authentic Self-Realization where you get to experience yourself as the solitary Witness of everything around you, which is perfect and all-pervading. This is a clear way to unexcelled Freedom, desirelessness and permanent stillness of the mind.
A new beginning – the world becomes but a mere seeming in You that is made of arising and non-arising causations which you have long transcended into a greater abode of great Enlightenment. Be happy.
