If you hear the message for the first time:
You are not the person you believe yourself to be
it seems just words, strange, maybe too abstract.
And yet if you investigate a little,
you will find out that it is true.
In spite of what your parents, society,
everyone around you
seems to have instilled in you.:
You are not a person.
You are a perceiving capacity.
And this is your experience if you investigate,
if you actually want to find out if this is true.
Go to your actual experience, right now.
Not to the mind, not to the reasoning.
Perceiving is on going at all times.
Sights, smells, tastes, sounds,
sensations, thoughts and feelings.
Information coming into this Space at all times
This aware space.
Even the perception of a person, this body mind
but can itself not be seen.
It notices everything
but is itself invisible.
It is identification with being a person which makes
one feel limited and separate.
As soon as the identification drops
( through simply investigating your own experience )
and one knows oneself to be a perceiving capacity,
one becomes aware that one is and always have been
this limitless aware Something
in which all takes place.
If you are interested..
Early morning sunlight
dancing through the windows
a dripping tap
tree pies and peacocks
bird singing all around
the stone floor cool
beneath the feet.
the blinking lights of the modem
some stumbling sounds from
the neighbors house
signs of appetite
and a thought of coffee and breakfast appearing.
ongoing at all times
by no one in particular.
It is just seeing things as they are
