Witnessing The Witness and The Law of Attraction

Deeper than your physical body, deeper than your mind and soul, in the middle of it all, there you are. You have an awareness, and this awareness generally is rooted in the physical world. With this, most of us see some of our physical surroundings and are conscious of some of our thoughts.

Consider a possibility with me for just a moment. After you have learned to silence your mind and just observe the here and now (see my article, The Silent Mind), what then? Is that all there is to awareness? Are you really confined to that space inside your physical body from which you are seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling? Or have you just begun?

After you have learned to just observe in a stilled mind, now you can back up just a little bit more and observe yourself observing. What is conscious of what's around you? Around what is everything you're observing? Take a few moments to watch yourself watching.

When I do this, it is as though there is a white light which represents the level of awareness which used to be the center of my perception. It's something I can't really describe. It's part of my mind. But as I step up a level and watch that which I previously thought was me, watching, another shift in awareness and perception begins to take place.

This next level is much more closely connected to what's called the Law of Attraction. This universal law is widely misunderstood, and it is often treated as a "Holy Grail" which offers possible unending riches and happiness to those who learn to weild its powers. But that leaves out the God factor completely.

That being said, the Law of Attraction does govern many of the things that happen in our lives. And when we, in our point of awareness, step closer to that part of us which interacts directly with the forces behind this law, we can start to change our perceptions, our expectations, and even our future, to whatever extent God and the will of others allow.

It will no longer be "I believe such and such will happen," but "I have just projected such and such into my reality, as I watch from where I can see my past and future as though it were a clothes line dipping down to meet me in the here and now. It is already created in that time line. Any actions I must take right now to cooperate with that reality, I now take (not doing so may change that future). It already is so."

And when you start feeling that peaceful excitement, then you just might have successfully created something, here and now, already existing and clearly seen on your timeline from your present-moment witness.

Witnessing the witness can turn every moment into a meditation. You will begin to see more and more of not only what's going on around you, but how you are interacting with the world around you and what you are expressing, both physically and mentally.

Perhaps you will start to notice an atmosphere around you of doubt, or fear, or an expectation that certain things will or will not happen. Not only that, but you will start to learn how to change those things. Witnessing the witness is truly a wonderful thing to do. Just like regular workouts at the gym, it won't directly cause you to grow spiritually, but you will most certainly grow in the realm of the soul, and that's 1/3 of the "you" God has given into your care!

So, after you have learned to be still and observe, start observing yourself observing. You will most certainly be glad you did!

Life on earth is full of distractions that take us away from our original nature, our spiritual nature. Communication with God has its obstacles here on earth, where the body is being held down by gravity and the mind is being polluted by ego.However, meditation can overcome these obstacles and allow the spirit to be at peace with God once again. We needn’t wait till death to go back to God; we can be with God right now through meditation.
