Self & Essence

Self is merely a collection of thought-projections in the mind that essence (pure consciousness) perceives: when consciousness forgets its purity, it clings to these projections, creating a sense of I.

We are, firstly, consciousness.
The purity comes into focus through meditation.

In dropping the meditation
– just letting go, being barely aware –
we become loose.
We loose our self.

Misconception happens when, say, we watch this computer screen and ignore what is watching. It is consciousness, of course. As we progress in our practice of remembering, all occurrences in the mind become a reminder that it is pure consciousness taking it all in.

That is the unity of opposites.
By virtue of one, the other is known, simultaneously.

In remembering that the contents of the mind are an illusion,
pure consciousness is our reality.
