A Quote by sai on aspirant, witness, world, thoughts, feelings, mind, decision, action, and higher self

The true spiritual aspirant is the one who bears witness to the self in the real world; one who, in a split second, witnesses the thoughts, feelings and emotions that arise in the mind, and is able to either say, “Yes go ahead,” or, “No do not go ahead with this course of action.” This gives one the opportunity to act in accordance with their higher self at all times.
