When your attention turns towards your Self, instantly, the very turning is observed. Attention itself is a quality of the mind, and it is also being observed. This ‘turning towards’ is what you believe you are - an entity that does something and gets something in return. It is rarely questioned.
A feeling of joy is present when you remember and turn within. Again, I stress: There is that awareness in which the turning or non-turning of attention is witnessed. The movement of ‘I’ in its momentary-ness does not make any difference, because it is seen phenomenally and clearly does not affect the pure awareness in which it appears. When this understanding is grasped, all is done - well done! By whom is it grasped? By the un-nameable! When this insight implodes, the ‘somebody’ who apparently grasped it vanishes inside the ineffable.
