"You can watch your body from outside, and from inside too. You can close your eyes and you can watch your body from the inside. It will be dark, and it will not be so visible and so clear, but still you can feel many things. You can hear the heart beating. If you are really very silent you can even hear the sound of your blood running. You are not the body.
"You can watch your mind. All its thoughts, howsoever fine, are available to your watching. You can see the subtlest expression of the mind. That makes one thing clear – that you are not the mind either. It is a little more difficult, but not impossible, to watch your feelings – what the poets call the heart; your emotions, your moods – which are the subtlest things in your personality. A little sadness, a little joy, or perhaps nothing but an indifference ... But even indifference is a certain attitude. Watching goes on becoming more and more deep.
"Beyond your moods there is nothing to watch, but only silence. In that silence a great miracle happens. The energy that has been watching turns upon itself. …
"When the energy of watching turns back to the source, creating a circle, one knows oneself, there is nothing else to know. That′s what Socrates was saying to his disciples: 'Know thyself, because without knowing thyself you cannot be thyself.' Unconscious, you simply think you are. But you don′t know who you are, what you are, why you are. Your whole life is lived in unconsciousness." Osho
