Witness the transactional reality!
How to interact in the transactional reality mode [Vyavaharik satyam] without offending anyone as I feel distant, quiet, indifferent, and absorbed in the Witness Consciousness [Adhyatmik satyam] around friends and family?
Once you start getting established as the witness consciousness, the next step is to learn and understand your true nature. Without learning and understanding this thoroughly, one gets confused. So start exploring within:
Exploration 1] Recognize that the body-mind-senses have a habit pattern in talking, interacting, working, etc. This is like a computer program that runs automatically as per a pre-written code.
Exploration 2] The I-thought [Ego] arises later and claims the action of the body-mind. Once it makes this false claim, it judges itself saying, “I interacted correctly or wrongly”.
Exploration 3] Experiment if you simply stay as the witness, of the body-mind, without interfering, you will start noticing that everything happens on its own.
- The body works automatically without a doer.
- Thoughts arise in the mind spontaneously without a thinker.
Exploration 4] Recognize that you are simply the knower of the actions done by the body. You are simply the knower of the thoughts arising in the mind. You are not the doer nor the thinker.
Once the above truths about your true nature become clear, then you will become free of the following false assumptions totally:
- You will be free of the assumption, “I am the body”.
- You will be free of the assumption, “I am the mind”.
- You will be free of the assumption, “I am the doer”.
- You will be free of the assumption, “I am the experiencer”.
Once you are free, then you know clearly that your interaction with friends and family is not dictated by you. The ‘indifference’ & ‘distant’ tags are not created by you but simply automatic thoughts out of your control. Jaago Mohan pyaare! [Wake up dear].
Once the witnessing awareness that was asleep as the body-mind is awake, it recognizes that by withdrawing from the wrong story-creation-tendency, peace emanates. It keeps moving towards its peace repeatedly. This is your Adhyatmic Satyam [Spiritual truth].
Keep exploring! Attain your own true nature of peace!
