The deha is made of a conglomorate of cells. Each cell is subject to birth, disease, old age and death. Each cell is time-bound. Changes in the cells / body are revealed in the presence of self-evident, self-revealing consciousness that is ever changeless - nitya. Pleasant and unpleasant changes in the body are ever-revealed in the presence of self-evident, self-revealing consciousness that is ever changeless - nitya. The consciousness that is indeed 'I" is never altered by any of the changes in the body…. Nor by the apparent presence of the body.
The mind is teeming with thoughts and feelings. Every thought comes … to go. It arises, is sustained and disappears. The thoughts, the feelings keep changing. Pleasant and unpleasant changes in the thoughts are ever-revealed in the presence of self-evident, self-revealing consciousness that is ever changless - nitya. The consciousness that is indeed "I" is never altered by any changes in the mind. Pleasant thoughts and feelings don't alter consciousness. Unpleasant thoughts and feelings don't alter consciousness. These are illumined in the presence of consciousness - they have no power to alter consciousness - even as wave has no power to alter water - being not other than water. Even as the sun ever-illumines and is ever unaltered by what is illumined in its presence, so too the light of consciousness is ever unaltered by whatever is illumined in its presence.
Sakshi - consciousness the only truth that never deserts one - that is ever present - totally lovable, totally acceptable, not having an iota of limitation - being totally free of every thing that is illumined in its presence. In the total freedom that is one's truth, one is totally acceptable as one is to oneself. Total acceptance of oneself as is … is possible, when one recognizes the total freedom from all limitation, that is one's truth.
Let go holding on to the idea of "I' being limited by anything whatsoever. Simply let go. Don't hold onto any limiting belief about "I". Let go. Be Bold. Be Fearless. Let Go.
You are sakshi - the limitless, changeless, awareness, Truth. You are That, right now. All you have to do is let go of the notion that you are what is revealed in your changeless presence.
