The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the thinker.
The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated.
You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought.
That thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence.
You also realize that all the things that truly matter: beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken.Eckhart Tolle
