This meditation reveals the perpetual and consequential programming, the conditioning process, of the mind that began at birth. Think of the body and mind as hardware and software that are constantly growing and being shaped and formed by everything the body-mind is exposed to. This body-mind complex absorbs, processes, and stores everything to create our narrative of “I”. As we witness it, Who is the silent witness? Who am “I”? Even if there is no burning desire to seek an answer, just being aware of the continuous, cumulative process of conditioning can empower us to reprogram ourselves consciously in positive ways. Conscious thinking can lead to a deeper, compassionate understanding of relationships and less conflict. It does this by slowly breaking down identification of Self with the mind and the thinking process.
