The Utter Simplicity of What Is – Part II

Video with

From time to time our object-oriented attention spontaneously reverts into a state of directionless suspension and a pure sense of being becomes self-evident, which the mind translates into the thought “I am”. This sense of being is prior to any sensation, perception or thought, as it is the very source of experience. We usually denote it by vague terms, like ‘pure awareness’, ‘eternal now’ or ‘true self’. However, since it is impersonal and formless, our attempts to understand it through concepts is ultimately doomed to fail. When even the sense of being collapses into the utter simplicity of what is, nothing remains but the inconceivable aliveness of the Absolute.
