There is only "perceiving."

Freedom from suffering simply means not being identified anymore, which means not being separate anymore. We only suffer when we're identified, and we're only identified when we're separate.

When we perceive directly, there is no separation. There is only perceiving.

no Wayne (or Fred) separate from the Whole

Q: Is Wayne, with a body-mind mechanism, aware that he is not the doer?

A: There is no longer a Wayne WITH a body-mind mechanism. There is only the body-mind mechanism with the name Wayne. There is no separate Wayne there to be aware that he (is or) is not the doer, or that the sense of personal doership is gone. The whole issue is gone. There is simply doing.

'subject and object' is a game of "Let's pretend."

Our real nature

can never be

asserted or denied.

What is the use of trying

to climb out of a hole

we have never been in?

Source-Inconceivable by Wei Wu Wei

WE ARE UNABLE TO CONCEIVE ANYTHING THAT DOES NOT 'LAST', including time itself. Conception, that which is conceived, is in total subjection to the concept of duration.

From this it follows that the act of conceiving must be outside time and that conception itself, therefore, is temporal.

What we are as 'conceiving' is thereby seen to be inconceivable, and inconceivability can be said to be a definition of This-which-we-are.

This-Here-Now, which is I, is inconceivable because it is intemporal and non-finite. 'Conceiving' cannot conceive 'conceiving', therefore since whatever is conceivable cannot be what we are, what is inconceivable must necessarily be the inconceivable that cannot conceive itself.

Therefore our very inability to conceive what we are may be apprehended as a direct expression of what-we-are, and perhaps the only one we can know.

Concepts are merely the results, rendered permanent by language, of a previous process of comparison.---Sir W. Hamilton

Are you still bound

by concepts -

such as believing that

there is a world out there

with you in it?

forget about it

Never can you

make or lose contact with

What IS.

think about it

You don't perceive

what's happening.

"You" are part of "what's happening"

perceiving itself.

an absolutely transparent moment

What we think of

as the present

is really made of the past.

The present is

an absolutely transparent moment

that only great saints

ever see,

"Know-ing" undivided into knower and known

Where perfect knowledge is,

there is nothing

Noumenal Godhead has no separate bits.---Wei Wu Wei

How could "Totality" or "What IS"

be some thing

for some one

to refer to?

Who could stand

somewhere apart

even from

the smallest "part"?
