In direct experience–right here, right now–the world arises as a seamless whole. As an undulating river of awareness with no central viewpoint, except the viewpoint which IS it all.
It arises, so holy the knees sometimes want to sink to the ground in hallelujah.
Beneath and surrounding and encompassing the made-up personality and character is THIS sacred unbroken oneness appearing in amazing diversity, which even embraces the imaginary ego as more holiness.
Every single being already experiences this oneness. It’s not something to attain. It’s not something which can be realized in the future because it already exists as the very basis of reality.
You might call it awareness. Or love. Or God. Or This. Or That.
It’s what is arising in this moment.
It can not be conceptualized, although it allows conceptualization without making it into a problem. It can’t be thought, although it allows a million thoughts to sing, squabble, despair and delight.
When viewpoint isn’t limited to an “I” then a global viewpoint arises, unbidden. It’s always been present, only clouded by a sense of “me”, obscured perhaps, fragmented into seer and seen.
It’s as if we’ve been trained to look out of our eyes from the perspective of a single person. It’s as if we’re schooled to see separate objects in relation to an individual perceiver. But what truly exists outside of our training is something utterly connected, totally undivided.
One feels intimacy with that bird, that car, that clock, that homeless person. A sense of non-separation exists. One feels pain, but it’s not a knife of suffering. Life is like a river of awareness passing as Now, Now, Now.
Oneness embraces all diversity, never limiting or dismissing it.
The only thing that can seemingly cloud this awareness is a thought. And thoughts seem to continue to shield the eyes from the sun until they don’t. And maybe in the next moment clouds arise again. It’s only a problem within the illusion. Only the imagination-created “me” cares.
And now, here it is again, this whole arising, this seamless effortless space where perceiver and perceived cannot be teased apart.
Glory, glory, hallelujah.
