Learning to observe the mechanics

Something I’ve learned in my HD experiment…the mind’s stories are not subjective, nor omnipotent – they are mechanical.

Learning to observe the mechanics behind the stories helps to break the identification with the mind’s stories, and awareness develops.

Awareness is not about changing the mind – it is about learning, learning the mechanics of the mind and learning the ongoing practice of radical, vigilant observation.

It is so easy to fall into the trap of believing the mind knows what’s really going on, that it is telling the truth (to protect you) and if you manipulate the situation, you’ll get what you think you want.

Learning to see the mind stories for what they are – fingers pointing at what we are here to be wise about – that’s the beginning of transformation.
