i recalled right now about

Consciousness_without_an_object

as Franklin Merrel-Wolf called it


1. Consciousness is original, self-existent, and constitutive of all things. Wolff's term "Consciousness" here does not mean consciousness as opposed to unconsciousness. Nor does Wolff use the word "Consciousness" here as a consciousness involving any particular structure or mode of experience, such as the structure of intentionality, or the mode of our typical experience based on the distinction between subject and object. Rather, the meaning of the term "Consciousness" here is THAT which is the primordial ground and essential nature of all modes and forms of experience, both subjective and objective. In Wolff's words, The One, nonderivative Reality, is THAT which I have symbolized by 'Consciousness- without-an-object.' This is Root Consciousness, per se, to be distinguished from consciousness as content or as state, on the one hand, and from consciousness as an attribute of a Self or Atman, in any sense whatsoever. It is Consciousness of which nothing can be predicated in the privative sense save abstract Being. Upon It all else depends, while It remains self-existent. Thus, Consciousness is primary, i.e., it is first, prior to everything. Not before or first in the sense of time or temporal sequence, but prior in the sense of not being secondary to or derivative from anything else. Hence, Consciousness is self-existent, i.e., it does not depend upon anything else for its being and is entirely self-sufficient and complete. In particular, Consciousness does not depend upon, and is not derivative from, matter, energy, or any other substance. On the contrary, all experience and all objects are derivative from Consciousness. Thus Consciousness is constitutive of all things, i.e., all things are, in their ultimate nature, nothing but this Primordial Consciousness itself.

Non-duality isn't a point of view, only appears so.



Non-duality is a point a view, its a certain plateau upon the Mountian of this tangible world experience appearances (otherwise known in Ancient Chinese wisdom as Da Shan)---

"non-duality" is but a higher point of view, but a point of view nonetheless-


Here is something excellent I know you would be open minded enough to read and furthermore could understand without pre-conditioned concepts hindering the heart's tender knowing:

For "a point of view" you need two : "the one who has the point of view (1)" and "that which is viewed (2)"

and "nonduality" (a dual concept) points to "a reality" which goes beyond "duality" (two-ness)

but in which this duality appears as waves on the ocean.

So 'non-duality' is not a viewpoint but it appears as such.

You know, I still disagree with that ---

clearly I have different point of view than you do --- Cool

Perhaps this is dead right.
Perhaps it is sophistry.
I really don't know.

What I ask is how can it help?
Does it facilitate greater awareness?

It which is not an it does everything and nothing at all.

It doesn't have to 'help' or 'create greater awareness for' itself, only apparently so.

'Greater' is an appearance/object in awareness.
Awareness cannot be greater,
just like we cannot create extra room in space
-or decrease space-
by adding or removing objects.

Understanding
-as in 'understanding mathematics'-
can expand,
but the aware-space
in which such 'blossoming' occurs
does not expand.

It is impossible to add to hat
which has no form, no limits no location and so on...
All qualifications appear in awareness
but non apply to it.

Qualifying IT as not qualifiable
is of course in itself a qualification.

The thorn
and the thorn that removes the thorn
can both be discarded
by no one.

Thanks Awareness,
that is clear.

It's just that sometimes I wonder if
putting effort into understanding puzzling statements
is worth persuing at all ...
as time goes on there is less thinking here
about anything
