The ego is a mental construction. What you think you are is a mental construction. What you really are is the witness of all this. The same witness that is in all people.
When you realise you are the witness it’s a paradigm shift. Everything is the same but the context is different. There’s no more seeking. No more not knowing what to do. No waiting for some time in the future. The present moment is abundantly rich no matter what’s happening.
