At the end of winning a rat race, we are still a rat.

"Witnessing in awareness" is an oft-used term in spiritual parlances.Can we explore into its actual nature....
Most of us are unconscious in our routine everyday lives. We hardly see things around us. We are dead to "experience".Some of us are more aware of a few things, but it accompanied by mindspeak...our judgements.
True witnessing as I have known it is when we see things just as they are and to also be aware of our mindspeak on it. When we see a person, we just dont see him/her. we immediately see the person as "tall" or "short" ; "thin" or "stout". "beautiful" or "ugly", "good" or "bad" and so on....We lose the joy of "experiencing" when we label or judge.

To get into "experiencing" , it is essential to be aware of our mindspeak as we "see".

In everyday life, we would like some , we may not like some.That is our "perception" and it is fine, but we have to be aware of it as a "perception".
