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.
