http://www.tamiclose.com Letting go of the attachment to the mind, the ego, serves up a large helping of peace of mind. The mind depends on you for its existence. Thus, when we can remember that we are pure awareness, we allow the mind to serve our awareness and not the other way around :).
You know, things come and go, thoughts come and go, and this is the nature of our world. Everything is transient, except for our consciousness, our awareness, our soul. We are the center and everything else comes and goes for our witnessing of it.
As Mooji states, we came into this world not knowing the language, not knowing our names, not knowing our personality.
Everything had to be learned, and then we began to answer to this and we immersed ourselves in this process.. Now, we are remembering that we are not the personality, not the mind/body, but we are that who witnesses the functionality of the mind/body. This said, we are remembering our true essence, our true language.
When we can release everything that is transient and totally surrender to it, we open up space for consciousness to expand itSelf. If there are any attachments, no matter what they are, we will allow the mind to dictate our lives, You can't transcend the mind, the ego, if you are convinced of its invincibility.
When a thought comes in, simply witness it being there and be one with it. Then allow the next thought to come in and do the same. You may simply use an expression, "I'm aware of mySelf witnessing this thought." All of life gets played out in our consciousness so when we can remind ourselves that all of it is occurring in our mind, then we can set the stage for how we want to play with all the activity arising.
Order up a peace of mind right now, and relieve your mind of its duties and have it return its sheriff's badge....it has no authority :). You as the witness, as God, as consciousness, as pure awareness are the authority, and let the mind, the ego, know that it is reporting to You.
