Consciousness Is Not a State of Mind

1. superimpositions and the substrate

The same awareness witnessing deep sleep is witnessing the waking state, and this waking world is appearing in awareness but that awareness is untouched, unmoved, and immaculate.

They say consciousness is smaller than a mustard seed yet all space-time is appearing within consciousness. Such is the nature of illusion and the indescribable ineffability of pure consciousness.

Without consciousness shining on the world, there is no world. Without the world minding the world, there’s deep sleep. And without awareness, there’s no deep sleep. That's the way of superimpositions and the substrate.

2. the cosmic consciousness

The world is in the mind and of the mind. Self-awareness is in the mind but not of the mind. Absolute awareness is neither in the mind nor of the mind.

As the mind hears the revelations of nonduality, the mind is seeing through the mind, and self-awareness is being known.

Some say there's a cosmic consciousness and I say this so-called individual consciousness is the cosmic consciousness.

3. common knowledge

It's not what you know, it's what you think you know, says Steve Martin on SNL. It's distinguishing between what you think you know and what you really know, says I.

What you think you know is an assumption. What I know is I am, I know, and ananda, satcitananda.

Like Bond, James Bond; Christ, Jesus Christ; Viveka, Vivekananda.
