THE WATCHER’S PERSPECTIVE          by Chuck Kelley

The Watcher is our True Self. The Watcher is the silent and mysteriously detached part of our selves that merely observes. In our book, Who and What Owns Us, we show how to instantly connect with the Watcher, which is moving into The Blank Slate and living there…another way is through meditation. Regardless of one’s preferred method, the deciphering of our lives remains guess work, at best, without the Watcher’s perspective.

The Watcher part of us, has no ego; so cannot be insulted, has no agenda; so cannot be disappointed; has no subjectivity; so is free to clearly see what is and accept that what is…is what is in the moment. Our normal waking self is most often creating excuses and a slew of other busy work explaining our lives back to ourselves moment to moment…attempting to make it more palatable with spicy justifications, blame, and blah, blah, blah. No wonder we feel crazy so much of the time.

The quickest route to the Watcher is to ask ourselves the following question and DO NOT attempt to answer it, let the answer come on its own. “Where is my next thought coming from?” The silence that ensues is The Blank Slate; relax there and allow the Watcher to take over. Make this practice a habit. The more often we do it the better we’ll get and the longer we are able to maintain the connection. Whenever it feels as if the connection slipping; simply and silently repeat the question.

I’ve had occasions where the connection never wavered for days on end…talking about pleasantly turning the world on its ear! In fact, writing about it has made me all excited…I’m going there now. Bye!

Since his early teens, Chuck Kelley has tried to understand what makes us tick. Having had a troubled youth, he sought anything and everything that might assist him in getting his life together. Feeling universally misunderstood, he was determined to understand our nature and find some peace in his heart. Wanting to fit in while believing that he was totally unacceptable, he spent the majority of his life trying to become who and what he was not. The successes in business, the restaurants, the food manufacturing companies and all the other businesses he owned and operated, meant little to nothing to him because his accomplishments felt small when compared to certain others'. He felt that he was cursed to living a life of not being enough. Over the past forty plus years, Chuck has read practically every self help book, taken practically every self help course and tried an equal amount of self help programs. Along the way he has become certified in practically everything that hints of personal development, such as; Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis. In short, he is a walking, talking self-help clearinghouse. Now, he shares the things that work universally and he leaves out the rest. Having discovered that perfection is unattainable, and acceptance is subjective, he continues his research into every field that may lend insights into how to be more comfortable in our own skin and thrive in life. Embracing and openly admitting his perfectly perfect imperfections, "Because that's how I roll", has brought him more freedom than a massive trust fund. His wish is to save others the time, trouble and the wear and tear.
