When you think about it, what is really observing the world?

We often imagine a thinker, a seer, a hearer, generally, a sensing thing, in our head interpreting the world.

That’s one way to look at it.

But look through a doorway. Look into the other room. Can you “be” there while standing here? Can you sense that space while staying a few yards away?

Intellectually, you can’t really “be” in that other place. It’s confusing to think about. But when you get out of your own mind’s way, send your consciousness to the other room. Feel fully present there. Pick a corner to feel present in. Pick another corner.

If you continue to do this, it becomes easier to believe that your consciousness doesn’t solely reside behind your eyes, in your head. It feels more than possible that your consciousness could be anywhere you send it.
