If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know he is dreaming. When you know you are dreaming, you are awake within the dream. (Present Moment Reminder, Eckhart Tolle)
You are not thoughts. After that seemingly simple realization you have “woken up.” You have the power to experience your true being, and to see life as it really is from the vantage point of the watcher. You have the power to change the situation, to be an active participant in creating your own reality. There can be no diminishment of even the smallest glimpse of awakening. Once you know, experience, that you are not your thoughts but the one who perceives, you have initiated the flowering of your own existence.
