I like this, it reminds me of a quote you posted by Steven Norquist: Consciousness is not aware OF the universe; Consciousness is aware AS the universe.
Thanks - we tend to think of the Buddha (and our self) as "a" person, but where is that boundary?
Aha, I think I see why you put "a" in quotes. Because there is no boundary, no inside or outside, all is one only.
Yes, that is the pointer.
