Words are concepts and thus only metaphor (symbol/myth): a means, not an end in itself or reality. But metaphor can be the point of concentration where, by the power of suggestion, we may dive into and pass through the thought to reach an understanding that is ourself. Understanding Awareness, then, is like a hidden gem discovered deep Within is. Such has been there all the time because we Are that understanding in Principal (the Word/Logos), in Ourself as a Whole, but until the moment of discovery had not realized ourself as Such, as the essential Quality (Nonessentiality). Now, upon selflessly Realizing, we may express this through language (including all of the arts) and have it speak back to us.

So, understanding Awareness is not something that’s achieved or acquired, but rather acknowledged, like a precious gem newly discovered.
