“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the thinker.
The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated.
You begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence.
You also realize that all things that really matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken.”
– Eckhart Tolle
