The Witness

Interesting Dharma talk:

Notice that right now, someone is reading these words. Someone talks, eats, stands, sits, and washes the dishes. Someone may even be doubting that this is what's happening. Who is this one? Some awareness, intelligence or witnessing is taking place. Can you locate this? Does it have a color or form? Can you say when it is born or when it dies? Does it have a size? No matter how much you doubt that this is so, you are still aware of the doubt itself. In your immediate awareness as The Witness there is certainty, even if it is the certainty that you are doubting.
