-Eckhart Tolle, from The Power of Now

"Be at least as interested in your reactions as in the situation or person that causes you to react. Notice also how often your attention is in the past or future...Watch the thought, feel the emotion, observe the reaction. Don't make a personal problem out of them. You will then feel something more powerful than any of those things you observe: the still, observing presence itself behind the content of your mind, the silent watcher."
