Awareness is instantaneous --

With instantaneous awareness, what is there

The fact that the body-mind functions

needn't be surprising.
The time that is manufactured by memory and

To me there is a very big difference between talking about something
and being in the moment. Being is wholeness, undivided, unity.
Life registers, continual flow, I am not separate. There is a seeing,
creativity flows through, there is no separate knower from what is
known. There is no identification with a part. Describing doesn't
make for identification but identifying with the description.
and incoherence don't necessarily go hand in hand. Intelligence without
identification is coherent.
