How do I end the narrative of ‘me’?

Q: How do I end the narrative of me, me, me?

A: The answer to this question is actually very simple — and easy — but takes time, dedication, and patience, like all things do.  One has to realize that the more emphasis one puts on the me, the me’s problems, its conquests, and its stories, the more the story of the me will grow.  The more one watches the me, without getting emotionally involved with the me, the more the me will unravel before its eyes.

The real question is, ‘how do I cultivate witness consciousness?’  The answer is also simple and straight forward, but once again requires time, dedication, practice, and faith.

Begin by watching how you go about your day.  What you do, what you think, what you say, how you feel, how you react to other people, to events in your life, and so on. Do this day in, day out.  Before you know it, you will realize that you are becoming more and more identified with that which is watching than that which is being watched.  Not only are you participating in your life, but you are also watching unidentified to what is going on.  This shift is subtle, but important.  The more dedication to it you give, the more complete it becomes.
