#7: The Principle of Witnessing
by Bill Harris
When faced with uncomfortable feelings (the result, either consciously or unconsciously, of not letting “what is” be okay), the best course of action is to mentally step aside and, with great curiosity, watch yourself have the feeling or behavior.
You might say to yourself: “There I am, doing ________” or “There I am feeling __________.
The act of stepping aside to watch helps create conscious awareness, because it keeps you from becoming lost in the feelings or behaviors, or your mental analysis of them.
It makes it much more difficult to continue suffering. This watching needs to be done, however, without attachment to the outcome. In other words, you must objectively and curiously watch what is happening—not to change anything, but just to notice what is happening.
The ability to step aside and watch yourself as you feel and act is an acquired skill and takes time and practice to develop, but it will totally change your life. Meditation naturally develops your ability to become the witness.
If you step back the next time you are feeling any kind of discomfort and say to yourself “There I am, feeling angry” (or whatever it is you are feeling), and then just notice yourself being angry, without trying to stop it or change it, without any agenda for what should happen.
Any feeling you have will be a sensation in your body, so just notice where in your body you feel it. Notice if it stays the same or changes, if it stays in one place or moves around. Become genuinely curious about it.
Pretend you are a scientist who has been searching the Amazon jungle for 20 years for a certain butterfly, and finally...here it is! How carefully and curiously would you watch? Bring that amount of curiosity to bear on whatever is happening for you in that moment.
To be the witness, you must have no agenda other than to watch and be curious. Notice that you cannot be stuck in your suffering if a part of you is watching.
P.S. Your brain has tremendous power to change your experience of life’s ups and downs. Principle #7 teaches you how to take back your power in life, instead of being knocked around by whim and happenstance.

This Really Happened
“I’ve been a meditator for over 25 years and for the past few years I’ve had a dreadful sinking feeling that no matter how dedicated I may be, I will probably NOT reach my goal in this lifetime ...
What a joy it is to hit PLAY and experience blissful meditations – I cannot thank you enough for this technology!
The thought crossed my mind that it’s like spending 25 years tied to the kitchen sink and suddenly I have a dishwasher – WOW!”

“Human freedom involves our capacity to pause between the stimulus and response and, in that pause, to choose the one response toward which we wish to throw our weight. The capacity to create ourselves, based upon this freedom, is inseparable from consciousness or self-awareness.” ~Rollo May, The Courage to Create
