There are no bad and no good states for the Observer. Whatever happens, the Observer simply observes it. The conditioned mind will appraise and judge, while the Observer is going to observe the mind that appraises.
The Observer is a lifesaving necessity. One can go crazy without the Observer.
The Observer is something one has difficult time describing. It is this Whole that sees everything clearly. The Observer sees everything the way it is.
You cannot understand yourself because one part of you is saying one thing while another part is saying something completely opposite. A human being that starts to approach this understanding may start to think and feel that he is going mad. He may try to run away from it.

Self-investigation consists of tracking down of the dualities of your personality. This chase is carried on by the Observer. The Observer has to be constantly vigilant, constantly aware, and to observe all the time.
Think about yourself from the side. Observe yourself as if it was not you, but someone else. The more you think about yourself in such a way, the more you will start to feel the true you.
