SEEING, AND THEN I SEE

Seeing, and Then See

Seeing, and then I see.
Perception, and then perceive.
There is an extremely subtle difference here.

When consciousness does not realise its own nature of purity and instead perceives something, consciousness starts to narrate about whatever is perceived. We (pure consciousness) miss the moment before, when there was just perception (pure perception) present. It is this relating and narrating that created a feeling of an imaginary I, the witness, the author of our creation of which we became proud.

I see therefore I am is the moment when ignorance is created. I think therefore I am is the moment when ignorance is created. We ignore the milli-moment of emptiness before the moment now. There is an extremely subtle difference between these two views, and meditation is a method to acknowledge this difference.

Whatever is seen is dropped, as there is the next moment of seeing. If we hold on to whatever is seen, we carry this over to the next moment, and our story becomes more complex and emotional. This habit now controls our life.

Satisfaction and realisation are in the seeing, rather than in the incomplete projections in the mind about whatever is seen. Meditation is about seeing and resting in the truth of our reality of pure consciousness. It is about not sitting in silent peacefulness: a cow can do that.
