What Is It Like Being As Pure Awareness?


You are not having the experience, You Are the Experience! You are not having the vision, You Are the Vision, the Whole Consciousness, in this case, the Nonliteral Perspective (Oneness/Nonsensory Perception/Nonego)! Yet the literal perspective (duality/sensory perception/ego) is still there, outside of You, as it were, like a shadow (form), or a reflection (thought) in the mirror (mind), but seeing, living, being through it, so to speak, you, being also the person, remain nonattached. That is to say, the Center of Consciousness is everywhere nonliterally, but nowhere literally, as both Are the Same (Whole Consciousness/Intubeing). Indeed, emptiness and fullness Are the Same. All opposites Are the Same Unity, as there is no separation in pure Awareness; there is only the Knowing, Seeing, Being Awareness itself, or in itself (Absolute Relativity/Totality of Being).

Interestingly, being as pure Awareness, there is no personal I (me) to speak of. Thus, as you are not making any claim on anything, there is no personal memory of you doing, or saying, anything; it is as if everything does itself, as if there is only the Doing, the Seeing, the Being itself. That is what Is… Is pure Awareness, pure Spirit, pure Intelligence, the Real You, the Real Us, the Real God!

You, being as pure Awareness, expand and contract consciousness without fear. Thus, instead of having, you Are the very Sense of Well-Being (Whole Being). Nevertheless, as long as you retain a material body, you will pass in and out of Whole Consciousness. But over time, the personal aspect of you, being One with the Whole, will realize that it does not matter. A remnant of pure Awareness stays with you as a Presence in the forehead between the eyes, and thus using every thing-event as a means of inverting the mind and returning to the Source (Center), which is your (our) innermost Being, you come to fully (selflessly) Realize that the material world (divided consciousness) has no life, power or cause by itself, and need not fear any outcome. Such Is Liberation, Enlightenment…and your (our) true Self (Selfless)!

Being as pure Awareness is like Being Within everything and everything being within You.



What Is The Spiritual Significance Of Human Sexuality?


Ultimately, sex can be one’s complete surrender to That which is greater than oneself, that is, if one still sees That as the “other” and thus needs to humble his/her pride before God, transmuting life’s energy from literal to nonliteral, from material to spiritual, from personal to intupersonal. Psychologically one steps into the fire (spirit) of God and burns away the “dross” still being accumulated over time by the soul centered in duality, sensory perception and ego (literal perspective).

Thus in using sex, as with other things (concepts), as a ritual sacrifice and personal offering to God (our innermost Being), the activity (being totally spontaneous/giving) can be, if perfected in practice (with or without orgasm), a purifying and liberating experience, even a blessing (or healing) from God as all paths may lead to enlightenment if one’s going that way to begin with. Indeed, one who is truly devoted consecrates (spiritualizes) every activity entered into–for one finds God already there.

Such is the true Way of the cross, of the living cross or path of action…even as the Living Principal (Tao) or Word (Christ Jesus/God in man/Atman) Rests Within us (Nonliteral Perspective) and Is Us as a Whole (Nonaction). Thus action and Nonaction Are One!

Can Understanding Only Be Achieved Through Words And Language?



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.

Does The Truth Need To Be Proved?



There is truth as in a fact and there is living/being truth. One can demonstrate (prove) a fact in nature, as science does, because such, being relative, has limitations; but living/being truth requires that one go beyond (through) the literal aspect to the Nonliteral (Spiritual), as Such Rests Complete (wholly Within) in itself (Ourself as a Whole), and thus Intubeing, requires no watcher or outside witness for gratification (ego): we Are what We See.

The world outside, being ego, demands gratification (the watcher); the Spirit, Being Nonego, demands nothing, making no personal claim on anyone or anything, but just Is! The world outside is a fact (actual), which requires a demonstration (sensory perception) to validate it; but the Spirit (pure Intelligence) Is Living/Being Truth (Nonsensory Perception), which knows Ourself as a Whole (Nonactual/Real), that is, Energy-Consciousness Knowing in itself without (through) an object or validation, and may be called Absolute Relativity (Totality of Being/God).

Does History Repeat Itself?


It’s not history as such that repeats itself but human nature.

 Human beings are patterns of behavior…and when patterns are reinforced, as in cultural conditioning, they are firmly established, even collectively. Based on past experience, then, the character of those patterns is predetermined by the way in which we see ourselves, and so live our lives. Thus it is that every generation needs to discover “just what those patterns are” for themselves, and either change the way in which they see or repeat the status quo and eventually regress. Mankind tends to opt for the second choice (it’s easier to be led than to find your own way) and thus civilizations rise and fall. You would think we would catch on after a while–but the spirit (or is it flesh?) of self-examination is weak.

Why Are We As Humans Self-Destructive?


In short, because most of us, in identifying with the material body and personality as ourself,  remain self-centered, contained and thus dominated by our own life’s energy–and with the literal perspective that comes with it (maya). Thus we are a tyrant first unto ourselves, then unto others, as one projects outwardly what’s already going on inside; or, in taking the reverse course, we allow others to tyrannize us even as we victimize ourself from within, most probably out of a sense of guilt, as we see ourselves, and the world around us, as being less than divine.  From there the pattern of our behavior is set, and being reinforced over the years, becomes our basic character.

However, our true self is selfless, the Totality of Being (Nonliteral Perspective); yet, as human beings (conceptualized consciousness), we are born as partialities (personalities), cut off from Total (understanding) Awareness (Intuself). This split in consciousness or division in mind is what was originally meant by the phrase “original sin”, for having forgotten, with the “plunge into the senses”, Who and what we really Are, in our ignorance (self-consciousness) have spun (projected) a pretender (ego) as ourself who, in believing his will comes first (false absolute)–must eventually come undone–as anything that has a beginning must have an ending.

The gospel story in the Bible is about a man who devotes his life on earth to confronting, penetrating, understanding and resolving the contraries of his ego (satan) existence through every activity of the day (living meditation/religion/faith/life/God). It’s called the Way of the cross: the psychological process by which we transmute the living energy that we are from literal to nonliteral, from material to spiritual, from personal to intupersonal. This is why we are here: to make ourselves Whole (One) again.

Does A Great Stifling Force Drive The Madness (Self-Destructiveness) Of The Masses?


Yes, it’s called the human personality/ego-satan, the only enemy any of us will ever know (or will never know). That is to say, most of us haven’t examined ourself to any depth in order to see through and understand the secondary motives and drives behind our aggressive, and often self-victimizing, personalities (our conceptualized or split-consciousness).

So, remaining cut off from the Peace that comes with Whole Consciousness (Nonego), we spend our time on this planet in a “rush”, programed by culture (which has to make a profit on everything) to spin our lives away rationalizing, justifying and, if possible, legalizing our escapist behavior. Thus, literally living in a state of denial, we shun the basic Intelligence (Spirit) that we really Are. If this this isn’t (perpetual) madness…I don’t know what is.
