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 from Practicing The Power of Now
