Daily life

It is more and more clear to me that, regarding my daily life, it's not I who is doing.
Likes and dislikes and invisible strings seem to direct me in certain ways -in my so called personal way-; also in my -unconscious- reactions to situations. I mean, nothing new here. You would almost say that i live unconsciously. The Jiva does what it has to do. He lives on.
I see it happen, although I'm not a witness. Witnessing stops the movement. Isn't it? Consciousness is not a witness, not a from moment to moment witnessing essence because there are no moments to grasp.

And I, I can't touch me, can't grasp me or hold me.
