Who Am I? What Is World?
Posted 4 April 2017 by Sal
Who Am I?
“I am consciously aware that I exist”, is the essential truth of who I am.
“I exist as… anything”, is the ephemeral aspect of who I am, only apparently true.
Who I am essentially is existence consciously knowing myself.
My essence is formless peace.
My temporal form is all of the objects known.
As myself essentially I exist peacefully, non-changing, eternally knowing. Siva.
As manifestation I appear as the constantly changing objects of perception. Shakti.
All objective aspects arise, persist and subside in essential being.
They have no independent nature, and as such do not exist separate from me.
They appear as a ripple on the surface of me, as a wave appears on the surface of ocean.
They are never separate from me, their source.
They are never different from me, their source.
They are never independent of me, their source.
When known by me, they are not known as apart from me, but as myself in momentary appearance.
All there is, is me.
All that is known is me.
What Is World?
Upon waking in the morning, consciousness, which has been dormant, alivens.
Consciousness equals mind. No consciousness, no mind.
Then it goes like this:
I - AM - WORLD - IS
This is a unitary movement.
Consciousness/Mind/I AM/World IS
It is all one movement.
The world I perceive is only my consciousness, my mind.
It appears in and as consciousness.
And my consciousness is only the knowing aspect of me.
There is no world other than my consciousness/knowing of it.
The world I perceive is the ephemeral, evanescent appearance of who I am.
