What happens when you “flip the camera around”?
In other words, when you become aware of the One who is observing out of your eyes, NOW, THIS very moment.
What happens when you shift your attention to the One who is looking? If it’s truly your heart’s desire to awaken, than stop being so interested in WHAT you are observing and start being more interested in THAT which is doing the observing. Get to know YOURSELF. How? By allowing your attention to fall back on itself.
Read that again: By allowing your attention to fall back on itself.
It’s the opposite of where your attention normally goes, which is “out there.” Instead, go in reverse and trace backward toward whence you come from. Eventually thoughts will run out of suggestions, but don’t stop. Just have it in your heart’s desire to keep going, even without thought. Let something “awaken” in you to show you the way home.
And what you may discover, shockingly, is that try as you might, you can’t seem to truly find yourself! Like water, the ‘real’ you slips from your grasp every time, despite your best effort to grab it and hold onto it. So, despite truly finding nothing, the paradox of all paradoxes is that, nevertheless, HERE YOU ARE!!!!!
