The Jewel and the rst Word
And then? What next, I wonder?
We begin to develop our sense of Awareness as something other than our usual
way of seeing and feeling. There are detailed steps and methods in the other
books. This is not the place for this right now.
At a certain point we get a realisation, either gradual or immediate that
‘consciousness’ is non dual. It is not divided.
When we have this understanding, based on experience and not as a mental
construction we develop it and make it increasingly reliable.
This ‘Awareness’ is not something new that we have created. It is our Natural
Intelligence and our fundamental and True Nature. It is familiar and comforting
and it gives us great insight and understanding.
When this ‘state of Awareness’ is established we can be in it. Also from time to
time it will come and find us. We have reached what in this writing is best
described as a ‘platform’. This is the end of our journeying. We are at the border
of that which is Great. It is like a great curtain before us. Maybe like the Northern
lights, moving and creating. We can consider to begin to touch. If we are willing
to reach out. At the same time we drink in, we absorb, all of the material world
into our being. We swallow our World.
None of this reaching out works until we have arrived at the real understanding.
It is a later stage practice. It takes off from a place of knowing. It is Real.
