2016 : what I wish for you

Kirlian Photograph of a Coleus Leaf

 

In reality there is only the source,

dark in itself,

making everything shine.

Unperceived, it causes perception.

Unfelt, it causes feeling.

Unthinkable, it causes thought.

Non-being, it gives birth to being.

 

It is the immovable background of motion.

 

Once you are there,

you are at home everywhere.

 

– Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Beloveds, may you never, ever, leave home
no matter how far and wide you travel.

– miriam louisa

this sacred intimacy

I am

nothing I can

conceive

nothing I can

imagine

nothing I can

remember

nothing I can

know

nothing I can

feel

nothing I can

perceive

 

yet my Presence

makes every

perception

and every movement of

thought and feeling

p o s s i b l e

 

I am

the Beloved I sought;

there was no

attainment to be had, no

condition to be met, no

return to be made

 

nothing, nothing

could be more sweetly simple

than this sacred intimacy

 

– miriam louisa

 


archaeology of an ‘I’

Level 1         I am my body

Task:  locate body

Outcome:  cannot specifically locate body

Conclusion:  body appears to be a sequence of sensations

 

Level 2        I am my sensations, feelings

Task:  locate whereabouts of senses

Outcome:  unable to locate senses, only find sensorial data

Conclusion:  senses appear to be a mental functioning – a knowingness

 

Level 3        I am my knowledge

Task:  locate knowledge database

Outcome:  unable to objectively locate either knowledge or knowingness

Conclusion:  knower, knowingness and knowledge appear to be inseparable from Consciousness

 

Level 4        I am Consciousness

Task:  locate Consciousness

Outcome:  unable to find Consciousness as an object separate from the seeker thereof – I

Conclusion:  Consciousness appears to be what I is

 

Level 5         I am…  I am…  I am… I am…

!!!!!!! does not compute !!!!!! system is shutting down !!!!!!!
