Remember to witness even when you are in a positive happy state (not just when you are in a negative state). It is harder to witness when you are happy because behind happiness hides the ‘Cinderella’ conditioning. When you are happy, instead of just enjoying that moment of happiness you begin to worry about loosing it and think of how to keep it forever.
But life is a flux. Living ‘happily ever after’ is just a hopeful conditioning. It comes from a deeper part of you, which is not happy.
Because you’re not able to flow with life moment to moment, and have been trained to either negate the negative or change it into positive, the temptation is to try to hold on to the positive and turn it into a plastic flower.
In order to be in your being and be truly content each moment, you need to witness and disidentify from both the positive and negative polarities of the mind.
