“Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it.” ~ Ram Dass
I’d like to add to this quote – Everything changes once we identify with being the witness and knowing that not only can we be the observer, we can choose to be the actor, too. And, when we become master manifestors, we can change between observer and actor with ease and grace.
Life would not be as fun if we just sat in the observer role. The observer in us is the “going general” aspect of our spiritual being – we can be removed from the fray of life, and be able to look ahead to see the storm is already passing.
Being in the actor role can also be exhausting and comes with a limited understanding of what is unfolding. The observer position can see at a higher vantage point of things to come. The actor position gets to play out each manifested experience, as they unfold.
It takes practice to be able to move from stage to nose bleed seats and then from balcony seats back to the stage again. Just as it can sometimes be difficult climbing up, so can navigating the steps back down to the stage. No one point of view is more important than the other, because each allows us to express ourselves and to learn from each vantage point.
Next time you are having a difficult time, go to the Witness or Observer Self, to help guide you back to peace. Like adjusting binocular lens, the observer can then see things in a situation they were unable to see in the actor role.
Or, if you have been blessed with a great vacation, but you are not enjoying the smooth or bumpy spots to getting you there, time to get into the actor role to become more present.
Everything does change when we know we can adjust our vision, allowing us to see not just the minute details of life, but to also be able to see the whole picture when we need to.
