Our habit is to refer to these 6 senses as myself – ‘I’m seeing something, I’m hearing something, I’m thinking something, I’m feeling something”. We should instead remind ourselves that our 6 senses are nature. (Yogi’s note: The senses have their own nature and we try to observe and learn about their nature.)
So, instead of buying into that way of talking to ourselves, we could may be change the words so that we can go into the other mode; if we could remind ourselves ‘Oh, the mind is thinking, this is the nature of the mind’, or ‘The mind is feeling this’ and see why the mind is feeling this - if we could remind ourselves that all of this is happening of its own nature.
‘Seeing is happening, hearing is happening, aversion is happening’ instead of ‘I’m seeing, I’m hearing, I’m feeling, I’m angry’.
