[quote="toombaru We are cut off from peace like the wind is cut off from stillness.


We cannot ever be cut off from Awareness and Awareness is Peace whether we know it or not---Awareness is not concerned with what goes on with the images within Its Beingness. Or say it this way: you can change the word Awareness to stillness, its the same thing, but Awareness is 'stillness' in that it cannot be altered. (Stillness) Awareness is not ruffled when the wind blows. Awareness is not changed when the wind blows. Awareness exists no matter how loud or forceful or chaotic the wind might be--- Awareness is not cut off when the wind blows. (Stillness) which is the same as Awareness (Peace), is not disturbed by or made loud when the voices shout.

Awareness is being the wind blowing and the one seeing the leaves russtle in the trees, and awareness is being the trees blowing in the wind---even if there is a hurricane force wind; awareness goes right on being aware completely free and totally unharmed by that force. even if the electric is cut off, and branches of the trees fall off---nothing happens to awareness; all that 'cutting off' is always "happening" or seen here within Awareness-Self-I-Am.[/quote]



"Awareness" can see everything but itself simply because it is not a thing.
Consciousness will never understand itself simply because it IS itself.

People don't have or hold positions.

Yes, however I regard that as a given.

People ARE positions.


What does that mean? They stay the same? They are located somewhere? In what sense?



There is no such thing as a person.
The person or the "I am" is an inference that emerges from the mnemonic debris that accumulates over the life span of the physical organism.
"Position" refers to a world-view or personal mind map.
The "person" IS the mind map.


hmmmm, but what then is "the physical organism"...?!


another thought Rolling Eyes

we really do create this reality with our thoughts Very Happy

The thoughts and the perception of reality are one and the same.

Ram Dass took a little too much LSD in his imagined life.
The conceptual overlay that is the only abode of the I am cannot even be called a dance.
It is an electro-chemical concoction of the human brain in which a phantom emerges in a shadowland of its own swirling post-its.
