Exercise 5

Being Aware Will

Do we have any evidence at all for this definitionless awareness that I keep referring to?

It’s outside of time; it’s nonspatial; it’s adimensional; it has no mass, no wavelength, no frequency— in short, it’s unimaginable. Not that. Not that. Not that either.

It’s beyond the parameters by which we determine whether something exists or not. Can you imagine something that’s unimaginable? No! Put away your mind with all its labels and definitions. What evidence do we have for this definitionless awareness that remains when everything else is eliminated?

What’s left? Only the eliminator.

When we understand this, all the things that it can’t be described by are actually evidence of it. That. That. That too.

 

The Will Rules All

All of the struggles between self and the world come from an ignorance of this principle: that consciousness and the universe arise from the same source. The will is a quality of this source and thus a bridge between the physical and the mental.
