non-objectivity

We, and our judgment, and all mortal things

go on flowing and rolling unceasingly.

Thus nothing certain can be established

about one thing by another,

both the judging and the judged

being in continual change and motion.

"You"

are not living "your life."

"Living" is all there IS.

The "Knowing" which IS,

Which you ARE,

Is the one "thing"

That is beyond

Knowing or not-knowing.

From which we could do the describing.

The whole, being love,

there is nothing for you to set it against

and judge it by.


[Doing] so, you are driven to fancies.

not a thing is -- Hui-neng

At the level of non-duality,

there is "nothing to do"

simply because

there IS no thing.

where?

When you are cognizing something as an individual,

where do you place yourself?


Consciousness is

that which is cognizing,

the cognition,

and that which is being cognized.


--- Nisargadatta Maharaj

being=awareness

Q: How can I stay stable in awareness?

A: You know you are. That is awareness. If you think you have to be aware, then it becomes an experiential state. You want to experience something.


--- Nisargadatta Maharaj

a total unity

Reality is infinite, thus unseizable.

We cannot take hold of it.

We can only allow ourselves to be seized.


--- Jean Klein

What we truly long for is intimately here, always...

It is not something, some of the time-

It is everything, all of the time.
