All of us occur within the same fabric - pure awareness. Were it not for the true nature of all of our mind's - PURE CONSCIOUSNESS, pure awareness before/without any forms - none of the gigantic web of yin and yang, cause and effect would exist.
To me, all apparently external things are "orbjects", things occuring around a "subject". To me, I seem to be a subject, a separate subject that watches external objects.
To you, however, my body is but another object. You, who is thought to be an external object by me, is also the internal "subject" to you.
So which is it? Are we subjects? Or are we objects? Really we appear to be both? But how is this so?
The truth is, the part of you that "sees", the clarity that is seeing all objects, is the EXACT SAME "watcher" that watches all. It is the common clarity of every sentient being - awareness, simply pure awareness.
I occur within awareness - the TREE occurs within awarness - ALL occurs within this awareness. I look at this computer.. is there a gap between the computer and my awareness of it? NO. The computer IS my awareness. Now heres the cool part... is there a gap between me and this awareness?
Look for yourself. I know my answer
So if there is no gap between your awareness and the tree... the tree ( and thus ALL apparently external OBJECTS), the tree IS awareness...
and there is no gap between awareness and you.... you are awareness...
Where is the tree and where is you? Do they really exist separately? Or are they all the one awareness?
To me, as I look around now, I am keenly aware of the empty clear space that is containing and surrounding EVERY MOMENT. The silence underneath ALL transient noises, the stillness underneath, before and after ALL movement. The formless before and after all temporary forms. It is the only thing in this ever-changing experience that NEVER changes - there is ALWAYS there.
Because it is all.
That's my high thoughts for the night. Peace and love yall... remember.. if this life's got you down, remember... this is all just a dream. Just like everything in a dream is a temporary creation of consciousness, so is this dream that we think of as the waking state. We are not solid beings, living in a solid world. Our atoms have been found to be 100% (99.99repeating is 100%, lets not kid ourselves) empty space... we are but characters creating and being lived out through the play of the infinite mind... pure consciousness, the source and fabric and energy of all of creation - the whole and undivided ONE, which is ALL.
So if you ever get down, perhaps try remembering that all of our suffering is a result of thought forms planted in our thinking mind - our human mind that thinks it is separate and living in a hostile world, that is conditioned and programmed in the delusion of duality since we are little. See your problems are illusions - they are problems happening to a person that doesn't exist... a person that is a figment of imagination, and "I", a subject transposed upon pure infinite consciousness.
Ok THAT is my high rant for the night Much love yall, peace
