Question:

When you ask us to shift our attention back to the one that’s listening, who is shifting their attention?  Is the Witness shifting its attention back onto itself?

Answer:

Yes, it is the silent awareness that shifts its attention inward on itself instead of outward through the senses and objects of perception. It is the one inside you that is listening and observing all that you think, feel and do.

The inner witness can be self-referral and therefore conscious of itself. That is why that presence of the self is called consciousness – it knows itself through itself and by itself. In that way it becomes awakened to its full potentiality.

Love,

Deepak
