To be a witness means that I now give up dividing the world into many. Instead I will divide it two- the witness and the witnessed. And when I have reduced the many fragments of the world to two, it will not be difficult to come to the complete unity of existence when duality will disappear, when the observer and the observed will become one and the same. If one succeeds in becoming a witness he will soon have glimpses of the one without the other, when there is neither witness nor witnessed, but only witnessing.Osho(Source: Krishna by Osho)
