There arises an identification between imaginary dream puppet dave and apparent "typing" which also independently arises in PURE AWARENESS.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with an independently arising, imaginary, memory story which depicts imaginary dream puppet dave spending a period of months in an imaginary recent past studying non-dual spirituality by appearing to read books, listen to recordings, and watch dvd's by ramana maharshi, nisargadatta maharaj, gangaji, eckhart tolle, tony parsons and others. also by participating in imaginary internet bb's like this little illusion right here.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with an independently arising feeling of intellectual understanding of that part of non-dual awareness which is understandable.

However, imaginary dream puppet dave also identifies with the independently arising thought that this understanding has not been clearly and fully known by an independently arising "feeling of certainty" that this model is an accurate model of ULTIMATE TRUTH.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with the independently arising realization that this "feeling of certainty" may or may not appear in the portion of AWARENESS that he can identify with and that there is no independently arising activity that he could identify with that would cause this "feeling of certainty" to arise in AWARENESS.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with an independently arising decision that all efforts to push for this "feeling of certainty" should be abandoned for now and the imaginary future.

GRACE regarding this matter either arises or it does not.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with an idependently arising decision to observe all that arises in AWARENESS without resistance or judgement, to identify with a state of mindfullness during all imaginary activities, and to identify with a posture of deep, divine, unconditional love toward any imaginary dream puppets that may appear in PURE CONSCIOUSNESS.

imaginary dream puppet dave identifies with a strong feeling of gratitude toward all members of this bb.

NAMASTE!

imaginary dream puppet dave

imaginary dream puppet dave arises in awareness. All that is seen in awareness are some colours together with meaning: "arms and hands that appear to be typing". This meaning is simply 'known' as the image appears.

There may also be other sensations arising (subtle sound) and meaning: "these are just images of the puppets (DaveK's) arms and hands seeming to type". This experience may seem like a 'voice in the head'... as a 'thought'.

Further subtle sounds and meaning may then arise: "the subtle sound and meaning that was just experienced as a 'thought', seemed like it was 'my thought', as though 'I am thinking', but it was just a subtle sound and meaning arising in awareness"... Surprised

And so it goes Very Happy

All that is 'known' of 'DaveK, is known only in 'memory'... whatever that is.

The dream puppet cannot identify with anything, cannot think anything, cannot feel anything... it is a dream puppet Shocked

Of course, the dream puppet can never know this... it is a dream puppet.

So who knows this?

More subtle sounds and meaning may appear: "I don't know".

The 'I' that doesn't know, doesn't exist Shocked Cool Very Happy

In 'Not-Knowing'... every 'thing' is known... who knows this?

Not I Cool

Love

None of the above or whatever else appears to arise, will be dependant on you Dave...........never has been and never will.

Not knowing or feeling uncertain................is also Oneness arising as that...........unconditional, unavoidable, complete unicity.

No escape..........
