Ramesh Balsekar on Sense of Doership

"Breathing goes on by itself and the person thinks he is breathing. Thoughts come from outside – every fresh thought after a mental event is a spontaneous event – and he thinks it is he who is thinking. Thoughts get transformed into action, and he thinks it is he who is acting! The jnani on the other hand, merely witnesses the event of seeing, hearing, touching, smelling or tasting as an event in which he is not concerned as an individual because the sense of personal doership has evaporated altogether." --- Ramesh Balsekar
