who am I ?

"You" cannot get out of

or into

What IS.

So, how can "you"


an independent entity?

what what?

When Nan-yueh visited his teacher

he was asked,

"what is it that has thus come?"

He could not respond,

and was plagued by the question

for years.

Finally it dawned on him,

"Even to say it is anything

doesn't hit the mark."

not two

There was (is) just THIS,

with no way of knowing


what THIS is.

The Functioning of Totality

The belief that you

are the subject of any object

is mistaken;

it's a "false claim."

The quasi-subject

and quasi-object

"arise together."

Mind Only

"Your actions" are neither yours,

nor are they actions.

Noumenal Living by Wei Wu Wei

BEING (or living noumenally, subjectively) is not ceasing to objectivise (interpret)--- for that is the functional aspect of subject---but ceasing to objectivise oneself, and thereby ceasing to regard one's objects as independent entities, as other than an aspect of oneself as their subject.

That, of course, implies that one is profoundly aware that one is not at all as any conceptual object, even a 'being'.

That integral absence, both phenomenal and noumenal, is the necessary awareness of is-as-it-isness---commonly called Awakening.


What does "separation" depend on? What makes perception "indirect"?

The answer, in a word, is interpretation.

Consider that a newborn also receives "sensory data" BUT has not yet learned how to interpret "what it signifies."
