In every situation, the human brain needs to anticipate the future. It must establish a point of reference from which it can frame all the data coming in. This referential center, me-centricity if you will, truly becomes the hub of this created universe.
Too, the brain requires a vehicle or instrument in order to be able to react to the data coming in. As such, it is covered by a protective layer capable of action, the body.
The body doesn’t ask for permission to become ill or to awaken in the morning. The mind does not seek preapproval of a given thought. States of mind come and go in endless succession without orchestration. These things go on on their own; they are not Me.
I am That within which everything appears and disappears. For this no effort is needed because no effort is needed to be what I already am. I am the images that appear, the screen they appear on and the observing of the screen. I am everything.
This becomes obvious when there is a change in viewpoint; from the inside looking out to the world to the outside looking in to the world.
