Excerpt:  From The Reconnections......

"The Watcher-Knower Self"


"As important as it is for each of you to fall into forgetfulness, it is equally important for you to be able to rise up again-- even as a phoenix flies from the ashes of its destruction, upwards to new life.  Though we are always here to assist you, as you do this-- you will eventually learn that not every part of you needs to go down in order for the whole of you be edified.  After all, you are a multi-faceted jewel, are you not?  Why not learn to do it all at the same time?  

At some point, you will choose to "chip off" a portion of your consciousness, and deputize it with the task of holding onto your divinity and wholeness, even as various parts of you continue to ride roller coasters of shifting mood and emotion.    We refer to this aspect as "The Knower," or the "Watcher Self."   This is the part of you that remembers, even as other parts seem to forget, and play out their Games of 3D Drama and Intrigue.


The Watcher Self is a laser-thin remembrance of cool divinity, which accompanies you upon your journey, when your heart turns to mush, or you roar and froth in animal desire.  It is a gentle passenger, who rides along on your "drives" of conquest or curiosity, and smiles with delight at the sights you behold, and the insights which they deliver. It remains as your memory, and it takes loads and loads of perceptual "snapshots," to help you remember these journeys.          


At any point, you can feel rage and confusion, even as a voice within you declares:  "I am watching myself go through this.  I am staying aware, even as parts of me are trying to forget."   And it will be, in that moment, as though you have become the Director in your own movie, even as you also remain the Audience as well.  For, in all your 3D travels--the primary factor which determines where you shall go, and what you will encounter, is your sense of attachment to any one state, in preference over another."


The Watcher/Knower Self remains unattached.  It simply is.  He or She sits up on the wall of whatever "reality box" you place yourself within, and simply enjoys the show.  It is an incredible tool for change, as well as personal grounding."


"I am satisfied . . . . I see, dance, laugh, sing;
Trippers and askers surround me,
People I meet . . . . . 
My dinner, dress, associates, looks, business, compliments, dues,
The real or fancied indifference of some man or woman I love,
The sickness of one of my folks -- or of myself . . . . or
ill-doing . . . . or loss or lack of money . . . . or depressions or exaltations,
They come to me days and nights and go from me again,
But they are not the Me myself.

Apart from the pulling and hauling stands what I am,
Stands amused, complacent, compassionating, idle, unitary,
Looks down, is erect, bends an arm on an impalpable certain rest,
Looks with its side-curved head curious what will come next,
Both in and out of the game, and watching and wondering at it."

~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
