Awareness and Consciousness
« on: April 16, 2013, 11:01:57 AM »
" Spiritual practice of being aware of Awareness is the state of witnessing. Witnessing brings pure-understanding of WHAT - IS (All there is, is Consciousness, in which appears the totality of all manifestations and its impersonal functioning). This understanding, being of noumenal nature (and not phenomenal or intellectual), which brings about a qualitative change through merely witnessing all thoughts, feelings, desires, as they arise, without getting involved with them, without identifying with them. "

The witness is not the person. The person comes into being when there is a basis for it, an organism, and a body. In it, the Absolute is reflected as awareness. Pure awareness becomes self-awareness. When there is a Self, self-awareness is the witness. When there is no self to witness, there is no witnessing either. It is very simple; it is the presence of the person that complicates. See that there is no such thing as a permanently separate person and all becomes clear. Awareness, mind, matter are of
one reality in its two aspects as immovable and movable and three attributes of inertia, energy and harmony. Awareness becomes consciousness when it has an object. The object changes all the time. In consciousness there is movement; awareness by itself is
motionless and timeless, here and now.
