Not identifying with the Thinker: The Heart of Meditation

.

.

“The third kind of detachment is subtler. . .

.

It involves letting go of our attachment to being the thinker,

.

the one who identifies with the thoughts and desires, . .

.

the one, in fact, who constantly, if unconsciously, chooses to think. . .

.

Instead we identify ourselves with the witness,

.

the watcher of thoughts. . .

.

We don’t try to cast out thoughts. . .

.

We let them be there,

.

but we pull back from them. . .

.

We identify with the one

.

who watches the thoughts”. . .

.

.

.

My two cents:  We pull back from our ego, allowing the watcher, the witness, our true self, our intuition to lead.

.

The Thinker needs to be top Banana , pun intended.
