Upon entering the final third of my life.. things I meant to say

Who Are You?
excerpt from “Still The Mind” by Alan Watts

Consciousness does not illumine the lamp from which it shines, just as a flashlight doesn’t shine on the battery that powers it. When you make a decision, does that come from somewhere other than you? No, it comes from the depths of you, of which you are not really aware. You encompass far more than anything you know about in a conscious way.
