Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine originating in Indian subcontinent, encompasses a holistic approach to health and well-being. Dating back thousands of years, Ayurveda focuses on achieving harmony and balance within the body, mind, and spirit. Derived from Sanskrit, “ayur” means life, and “veda” means knowledge or science, emphasizing its comprehensive understanding of life and healing. Ayurveda views each individual as unique, with their own specific constitution and balance of elemental forces known as doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha). By promoting preventive care, proper nutrition, herbal remedies, lifestyle modifications, and therapeutic practices, Ayurveda aims to restore and maintain optimal health by addressing the root causes of imbalances rather than merely treating symptoms. With its holistic and personalized approach, Ayurveda continues to inspire and guide individuals on their journey towards vitality, longevity, and a harmonious existence.
As the title queries, if YOU are observing your thoughts then whom do you consider as YOU, the thinker or the observer?

This reminds me of a famous saying among indian saints.
“आप स्वप्न पुरुष नहीं हो। आप तो स्वप्न द्रष्टा हो।”
You’re not the person in the dream (while dreaming, we do feel like we are the person in the dream). But when you wake up, you realize that You’re the witness of the dream.
The same can be applied to the waking state.
We witness the thoughts in our mind, BUT we do have the sense that we are consciously thinking those thoughts.
If you observe closely, you realize that those thoughts automatically come from somewhere and you have the intellectual choice to either entertain that thought, or ignore it.
So now it seems like you’re the intellect that decides what to think. But that theory can be debunked because you’re witnessing that intellect in play.
If we keep questioning the real nature of Me/I/Us, we will reach the point where we realize that we are the existence-consciousness-bliss or Sat-Chit-Ananda.
We are the reality in which all our sense experience and thought experience is projected.
Then u are a witness.
Neither but also both.
You are a stoner brother.
You been listening to Krishnamurti?

Observer for sure. A lot of organisms exist without a functioning brain. “I think, therefore I am” is just a retarded statement

Well if you really do observe there’s only observation and the observer, thinker, controller-whatever word you may use, it dissolves.
hopping from one side to another while thinking and observing the thoughts
Why cant I be both? An observer and a thinker. Why does it have to be only OR, why cant it be AND people?

If that were the case, I would consider myself Schizophrenic.🙂
Or maybe a heroic dose of Magic Mushroom straight from Sauraha might be doing its job on me. 2 tabs of LSD would yield similar results.
The observer is the observed – j krishnamurti

In an ultimate reality, you are an observer and you are nothing but an observer. But in transactional reality, you’re a thinker.
Whether it is one or the other, you’re never the thought.
