"Consciousness becomes aware of Itself."

My feeling is that the witnessing state happens every day to everyone.
Let us ask: does that witnessing state happen when consciousness is fully engaged in something? No. At that moment you will not be able to taste the beauty and peace of that state, because that state of witnessing is then filled with perception and activity. Only when not too many things are happening in perception, will you feel the intensity of that witnessing state. Consciousness then becomes aware of its natural state.
So, this is possible when a certain calmness prevails, and not too many sensations occur. Peace of mind could happen when you go for a walk in nature, or at sunset, or on waking up in the morning. It doesn't necessarily have to come about through meditation or detachment.---Marc Beuret

"I am This, Here, Now !"

If the imaginary forest (of concepts) has been cleared
We only have to look in order to apperceive
What, when, and where we are,
That it is not what we KNOW, but what "I AM",
And that unborn, unliving, undying,
It is here and now and forever.---Wei Wu Wei

Unextended in conceptual space-time, we cannot not "be"---we ARE.

The abolition
Of conceptual extension
In space-time
Does away with relativity,
Revealing what-we-are:
Timeless and infinite,
Void in non-extension,
And so, absolute.--- Wei Wu Wei

I see directly, and then, "I" am absent.

In my conceptual absence
Everyone and everything
Is welcome HERE, where I AM,
And where they will be
Absolutely at home!---Wei Wu Wei

"apperceiving what we are"

When "mind" is sufficiently still, it can recognize itself in the "mirror" of its own "manifestings".

from Posthumous Pieces, ch.64

We are conditioned to regard the phenomenal as existent, but in order to apprehend what we are, such conditioning has to be discarded; what is sensorially perceived is then seen as the purely conceptual structure in mind which is all that it can be.---Wei Wu Wei
