Ultimate Insight: THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN OBJECTIVE 'BEING'.

The perfect understanding of that is perfect understanding itself. And that is because only non-objectivity itself can understand it. --- Wei Wu Wei

first, there is a mountain...

In the mysterious third phase, there is just a seeing in which there is no seer or seen, but just a suchness, an isness which is interpreted by the psycho-somatic mechanism as 'mountains and rivers'. --- Wei Wu Wei (edited)

free will?

'Horizontally' we have no freedom whatsoever. 'Vertically' there is neither freedom nor non-freedom. That is the answer. --- Wei Wu Wei

no time for a 'you', a 'me', or an 'it'

For the dividing of Mind, 'time' and 'space' are required. Hence, only Whole-Mind IS.

perception without a perceiver

'Let me remind you that the perceived cannot perceive.' ---Huang Po--- If you should ever come to understand the full significance of this, will you not have understood everything that needs to be understood? --- Wei Wu Wei

the Present is the presence of subjectivity...Wei Wu Wei

always-already

You don't already have Awareness.

"Awareness" already has "you."

What IS, here and now,

cannot be objectified.


Only in the partial optic

of 'self' and 'other'

does there seem to be

'time' and 'space'

separating 'entities'.


If there IS neither 'self' nor 'other,'

'who' is there to suffer any 'thing'?

It takes time

left to itself

Where the true is left to itself,

There is nothing false in it,

Which is Mind itself.

perfect

The present moment is perfect

in that

It is a perfect mystery.

unconditional acceptance

The mystery that is aware of this moment

has already accepted it, as it is.


We can't create this radical acceptance

and we are powerless to make it go away,

for the very nature of awareness

is to accept, without conditions, what is.


--- John Astin

Sees God nowhere.

non-ego

Sokei-an found, after long consideration, that the common basis of both Buddhism (the religion of wisdom) and Christianity (the religion of love) is non-ego.

"Love that does not come from Emptiness is merely partiality."

"Christian love, like the wisdom of Buddhism, is also non-ego."

"When we take this [non-ego] into ourselves, it is wisdom. When we give it to another, it is love."

"With this one key in my mind, Christianity and Buddhism come to know one another."


--- Sokei-an

pure awareness

There is a state beyond consciousness

which is not unconscious...

It is pure awareness,

free from the subject-object nexus.

in non-attention

It occurs to one's attention that one is.

When it was not in the attention of that one,

was the principle not there?

It was.

The principle is unblemished and without attention.

In non-attention it prevails.

Eternally.



--- Nisargadatta Maharaj

totality

When the consciousness fully understands the consciousness, will it embrace the body as itself? It is in totality; it is not going to pick out a fragment of the manifestation and say, "I am this."


--- Nisargadatta Maharaj
