MOVING INTO AND ABIDING AS AWARENESS – DIS IDENTIFYING WITH THE BODY-MIND- THOUGHTS- EVENTS AND OUTER WORLD – EVEN AS THEY CO EXIST ! STRADDLING DIVINITY AND HUMANITY

This meditation helps us abide as Awareness rather than the body, thoughts, events, world we usually identify with - and yet we shun not the body, thoughts, events, and world but understand their role as the cosmic play!

 

Come beloveds, become aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of

Come beloveds, move into...abide in this state of being... as   awareness.... and not that which you are aware of.  In analogy if you are (looking through) a camera lens, you are not the images places and things that the camera lens focuses on -  automatically there is a certain distance, detachment,  separation... from what you the lens are  aware of .... ; And thus as you abide as awareness rather than what you are aware of, you do not get so engaged, caught in, identified with what you are aware of...

 Indeed, and listen to this deeply, all that you are aware of...is what you call the ‘ego’ and its illusion/world of ups and downs..!  But as you abide as awareness and not that which you are aware of you move from self/ego... to Self/Impersonal consciousness!

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of; move into and abide in this state of being ; and as you do this you  become aware you are not all that you perceive through your senses ... you are awareness ... not that which you see, smell, hear, taste touch....! And even as you move into this awareness ... automatically...  there is a certain distance, detachment, separation... fading ... of all that you see, smell, hear, taste touch.... and you remain the pure awareness! Practice this here in meditation and then carry it forward into your day to day living:  keep coming back to this state of abiding as awareness rather than what you are seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, smelling (aware of). As you do this on a 24/7 basis as you keep coming back to abiding in awareness ... what you are aware of loosens its hold on you and you abide longer and firmer as awareness rather than what you are of; the gaps become less....

Yet do not be mistaken.... all that you see, smell, hear, taste touch ... is; it exists (in it s own way) it’s what’s called creation.  And yet you are awareness and not that which you are aware of...in this you straddle both... you abide as the vast – stillness of awareness even whilst you witness/enjoy creation rather than struggle with...

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of....move into...abide in this state of being.  Thus become aware you are not the events and experiences you identify with! Indeed a large ... large part of your ego  and its struggles  are  based on indentifying with events and experiences ... and not only of this life but previous lives... and in this awareness that you are not the events and their experiences you free yourself not only from what establishes you so firmly  in the ego currently... but  from the chains of memory... and even more... from cause and effect/karma ... the samara cycle you are otherwise caught in.... because when you truly abide as awareness and not the events/experiences... there is no ‘you’ to have any cause and effect.... you are awareness not the self  you are aware of...

Yet do not be mistaken.... events and experiences...  are; indeed events happen deeds are done but there is no doer thereof. Thus as you abide as awareness rather than what you are aware of, you realize these events/ experiences  are  simply the cosmic play... and thus you shun not the world or run away from life.. .but straddle both ... you abide as the vast – stillness of awareness even whilst you witness the flow of events...without identifying thus without getting caught in them...

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of.... move into...abide in this state of being; Thus become aware  you are not your thoughts and feelings ; become aware they are not yours, but simply the cosmic impulses. Abide in this awareness; view how you are the vast still sky and not the clouds passing by; view your thoughts as though they are happening on some distant stage ... and you have bad seats for the play.... and thus barely able to see or hear the dialogues you lose interest in what’s happening on the stage you call thoughts/feelings...  you realize they are not ‘your thoughts/feelings, there is nothing personal, they loosen their hold on you. Thoughtlessness is not a state without thoughts- but a state where one doesn't identify with the thoughts!

Yet do not be mistaken.... thoughts and feelings ...  are; they ‘exist’ in some sense; but they are simply cosmic impulses towards the functioning of the universe/cosmic play/ creation! View this through analogy, just like you need  to emit signals to make remote control toys work the way they are designed to...keys to make computers work the way they are designed to... thoughts are what the universe uses towards creation functioning as its designed to! So as you abide as awareness, rather than what you are aware of, as you become aware that what you have thought as your thoughts and feelings are really not.... they transform from personal hooks into the impersonal and loosen their hold on you!

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of....move into...abide in this state of being; thus become aware you are not your the ‘self’ you identify yourself as! It works both ways: all the earlier stages, where you become aware you are not what your senses perceive, not the events and experiences, not the thoughts and feelings ... enable to   loosen this sense of self! And as the sense of self loosens it enables the move from identifying with what you perceive, with events and experiences, and thoughts and feelings! One enables the other. But ultimately this dissolution - of the sense of self - is the very foundation by which all else dissolves like a house cards when the main card holding it up is removed! So as you abide as awareness rather than what you are aware of you become aware there is no self; it is simply a label....

Yet do not be mistaken.... the self which seems so real...  exists as a  function; but it is merely a point of  consciousness - and not what you are; ah yes you will use all your knowledge and say yes i don’t exist as a person but i am an individuation of the whole...and to that we say yes the so called self is an individuation of the whole but you are NOT that individuation! You are the whole! And the individuation is not an entity... it’s a point of awareness.... it’s more like one view/angle. In analogy view the room you are sitting in as creation and there are invisible cameras (points of awareness) at every point on the ceiling and all the images are relayed back to a central camera which chooses to experience/explore the room. And each individuation is only that range that any one point of awareness/camera picks up...  that angle of the whole ... not an entity... there are no demarcations separating one view from another- they all criss cross  at  different points! Don’t get stuck in the literal when we use an analogy... go with the gist and you will get a glimpse how no you exists... there is no self... only a state of awareness.

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of....move into...abide in this state of being.  Thus become aware you are not all that you have learned, understood, no matter how profound or deep; nothing that you can describe what is you really are; any word any description and concept that arises- you are not that!

So yes let them all arise... all the words.... and become aware you are not that.  So what am I?  Sit in this state of being without words, concepts... they will keep arising time to time till you really establish in or abide as.............

Because we have to use language we may say i am awareness... but  go beyond ...; at some point when all words/description/ concepts fade away... it may arise :  I am That. ‘That’ being the symbol of what is beyond description. At some point ‘that’ will also fade and it may be experienced as Ah I Am ‘This’. At some point This will also fade.... perhaps what will be left is : I AM... and as then perhaps only : am....and a sense of isness....but if the word isness comes you are not that!

Yet do not be mistaken.... you initially need the words, the knowledge, the descriptions ... they work like a bridge taking you beyond themselves; so cut not them short; force not yourself to be beyond them...but spontaneously as they take you across... the bridge becomes redundant... and yet you honour the bridge for taking you across; for the role it played and for the role it plays for other wayfarers who are not yet across ..

Come beloveds, be aware that you are awareness and not that which you are aware of...
