Thought of the Day: February 20, 2018 – Witness
Alan Watts, Philosopher, writer and speaker said, we have lived and repeated the journey of life for over 4.32 million years. Watts, is saying we are the witness to everything on Earth but perhaps we don’t remember the details in our conscious mind.
Can we witness the Earth’s history by tapping in to our subconscious mind?
If this is possible then what Watt’s is saying, is it true?
How can anyone really tell?
I believe the answer begins with and ends with meditation. Many of my profound teaching have come to me in meditation. The ability to quite the mind and channel an energy that has existed previously is a fact.
But regardless if my experience is real or just something I believe to be real, you have to consider what you have been witness to.
If what Watts is saying is false then perhaps we live one time and our consciousness and soul may not be a real thing?
You and I are born, we live, we die and this is all the story this life is about. Maybe we try to justify why where are here and try to find a reason so it all makes sense this birth and death process.
But what If he is right? Then you are not who you thing you are in this moment. Would you still be the person reading these words?
No, you would be the observer of all the different life’s you have lived in the 4.32 million years.
You would be the witness of every life form that has existed and died. It is a part of you and you a part of it.
Some believe we picked this journey that we are on. We wanted to understand what it would be like to live this version of our self.
Believe it or not, I think it is important to live life to its fullest. We should not just give up and live a life not worth living or talking about. We should do or best to be significant based on what we believe today, regardless of what our experience looks like.
Your choice is to be the witness once or a million times to come…
