I Want To Hear from You
I want to hear from you. About your direct experience of awareness and consciousness and being. Not what you “think” according to someone else’s “insight.” Your own experience. “Others” don’t necessarily validate your awareness. I think you do. I think you know when you are speaking from conditioned self, the mind created sense of self. And I think you know in those moments of inner stillness when you simply “are” and words are superfluous. But I don’t really know that.
I am asking you not to be overly perturbed with “words” and “concepts “of what’s “real” or what is “illusory”, what is “self” and what is “not-self”, “mind” or “no-mind,” “right” and “wrong.” After all we all are walking, talking, thinking, feeling, breathing, embodied “points of view.” So what? We are also formless, timeless, deathless, consciousness. Either way it is as it is or it isn’t. I don’t believe Absolute Reality requires “understanding” for it to be. I think it simply is. That is a point of view.
The existential fact I see is that the universe is totally amoral. There is no right or wrong or fair or unfair in the universe. There is simply ever changing energy flow, with forms coming into existence and winking out of existence. It is totally impersonal. There are no gaps and no mistakes in consciousness. There is no “meaning requirement” for the universe to be. It exists whether there are words to describe it or not, or a “self” to perceive it or not. This is also a point of view.
Someone says that words that point out that words are illusory are illusory. The real does not need to point to anything, illusory or otherwise. After all, is there really any meaningful difference between knowing and un-knowing where mind is concerned, since mind can only “know” through words, ideas, and concepts, illusory “knowledge.” Another point of view.
Some of us seem to see primarily through a “fixed” point of view, a “me”, acting as if how it is seen through this fixed point of view is how it “actually is.” When fixed point of view encounters fixed point of view, there usually is disputation, culture clash. When open-minded point of view encounters open-minded point of view there is the possibility through language of energy and information exchange, whereby informing and transforming may or may not come about. Again, a point of view.
Nevertheless, if you don’t mind, and if you can, speak of your direct experience.
