Is There a Doer?

The doer is there when you are pursuing some goal or object. The doer is the intention that arises in the mind. You feel you need or want something and that in turn gives rise to a resolve to attain it. The resolve becomes the doer. If you don’t let any intention rise in you, the doer will be absent. By this I also mean the intention to get enlightened, or the intention to be peaceful. Just for a moment see what happens when there is no intention in your mind. You are not going to lose anything if you devote just one second of your life to this.
