There are not two things, the one the actual thing, and the other the
perception of it.
Including the object popularly referred to as a sentient human being.
And yet in such a sentience...
...... this basic duality comes about and gets assumed to be so real,
across time and culture,
which has to do with the way that memory works, and therefore how
and the sense of a personal self.... works.
There seem to be objects existing independently of the perception of them.
Objects sensed by different people in different ways........thus
creating this panoramic display
of infinite hues, shapes and forms.
This bias about a division between the object and the perception of it,
is linked with the prevailing sense
that there is a subject who walks around and sees different things,
which is a personal subjectivity.
This is the duality that is "cleared" by a single moment of pure perception.
There has been so much written about this topic, in so many ways, and
spoken about for centuries.
All seemingly to no avail.
And that seemingly no avail is also part of this panoramic display.
Because words can only hint,can only be pointers to what could be coined
as pure and immediate awareness.
And it is IN and THROUGH the immediate awareness that the error is cleared.
The error of countless centuries and lifetimes dissolved, here, now.
Immediately, divisionlessly, irrevocably.
Such an awareness does not in any way interfere in an apple remaining on
the table, and that an apple is to be eaten
and not a stapler, next to it on the desk.
In the immediacy of perception, even while recognizing an apple as an
apple, and a stapler as a stapler..
......there is no division of awareness between a perceived object, and
a perceiver of the perception.
There is no object taken as existing outside of the perception, nor is
there any need of one.
Thus even the positing of a "pure and immediate
awareness"......"Self(with a capital S)"....
....the very positing is ............IN and AS awareness....
.....and thus there being none separate to this "pure and immediate
.....understanding..........is the understanding of the "rightness" of
such positings to arise (if and when they do)....
.....while understanding the utter absurdity of such arisings(indeed of
all arisings)...if and when they do.
One may ask how then does an apple remain an apple, a desk a desk, the
knowledge that one can be eaten ,
the other sat upon, etc
The true understanding of this comes from being-aware itself, such that
the apple being the apple, the table being the table,
knowledge of the distinctive intrinsic attributes of each, the apparent
continuity of things in time having qualities that exist in duration......
all of that......is not in any way separate or other from this awareness
itself, which has no duration, which is timeless.
This non-durational, timeless, un-nameable awareness,
which does not even have the space to allow the naming as
"non-durational", as "timeless", as "un-nameable"....
... necessary for everything to appear in time, have distinctive
qualities and apparent locations.
A "mystery" of endless depth and infinite possibility.
The term "mystery" is in quotes, because the mind immediately latches on
as something which can be solved, is to be solved.
And in that latching and creating a subsequent goal to be reached .....
...is the seemingly perpetuation of the sense of an existence of a mind...
... is the seemingly perpetuation of a personal self.
There is nothing to be solved, simply because for something to be solved,
there has to be an independent separative entity to that which is to be
And there is nothing mysterious about it, nothing hidden.
It is out in the open, directly revealed.
The endless mystery of what is direct, open, and immediately available....
... and ......
.......seemingly obscured, hidden, unavailable.
