"As you rest in your present awareness, you might perceive some sensation in the body, or you might be aware of thoughts passing by in front of the mind's eye, or you might be seeing the clouds floating by. But there is one thing you cannot see: you cannot see the Seer. You see thoughts, things, clouds, mountains, but never see the Seer, never the Self, never the pure Witness. Precisely because it sees thoughts, it is not itself a thought; precisely because it sees things, it is itself not a thing…

…So what is this Witness in you that is aware of you? Who is aware of your thoughts, your feelings, your self right now? What is that pure Awareness?

…for just a moment, simply be the Seer. Simply rest as the Seer, rest as the Witness, rest as that which sees but cannot be seen. As you rest in that emptiness, that absence, that clearing, that opening, you will begin to sense a vast freedom, a vast release from things seen, a vast release from the pain of being an object. You will rest in Emptiness, as the ancient Unseen, as the primordial Unborn, floating in the great Liberation…

And thus most fundamentally and forever, it is God who speaks with your tongue, and listens with your ears, and sees with your eyes, this God who is closer to you than you are to yourself…"
