We become responsible for what we see. The moment I witness a manifestation of my sleep, my conscience cannot remain clear without my attempting to work on that manifestation. Therefore, aims rooted in self-observation are accompanied by the desire to change, an indispensable fuel for effort. This tutorial explores self-observation as directing a ray of light within, a light that can then spread backwards to show me how I looked a moment before I awakened.

    The object of Self-Observation is to enable us to change ourselves. But its first object is to make us more conscious of ourselves. Only by making ourselves more conscious to ourselves does it enable us to begin to change.

      I found this to be very true yesterday. Observing myself and trying to find the root of the emotion and thoughts i was having. Didn’t want to stay paralyzed and i gave myself time to sort things out. Clarity, for me, comes at its own time when we are ready to face ourselves. Bravery.

    I’ve been involved with 4th Way a long time, longer than it seems when I ponder my progress, and only now am noticing more and more about what I’m doing. Observing my actions and thoughts only to see that I’ve been distracted from what I originally set out to do. Sometimes I feel that I resemble a riderless horse in a field, stopping here and there to bite off a tempting clump of green grass. Now then, I am more able to refocus on the original intent and get back to it.

    Self-observation and self-change, I feel is the seed of the movement for diversity of thought; catching the moment, each can regain the balance within ourselves. That moment to simply to see, is energising and indescribable.

    Observation is like ’emitting roots’ from above to below, it is through the very clay of the machine.
    And that’s effective, it’s already a change, more control; and a difference in experiencing. This is the level of the ‘Osberving I’, it’s different when the roots “have digested” and something enters in circulation: things dio begin to ‘fall in place’, and this seems the level of the Deputy Steward.
    It is, I had experienced the different degrees and obviously you get to a further level through the ‘Obsering I’, which is already a non-mechanical level, and the begining of ‘I’.
    So, like now, I just reaffirm my aim to observe, and begin again climbing the ladder. And what a relief! insetad of being swayed nowhere by the many i’s: I can see them as “i’s”; and that while so self-righteous, or also relatively sensible, they actually do not and cannot realy know something.
