      The nature of the real is akin that of witness-consciousness-bliss.

      Of course the term "witness" is used, not as much as an affirmation but to negate the existence of identification.

      The term "consciousness"........ to negate the existence of unconsciousness

       

      and the term "bliss"......... to negate the existence of  strife and suffering.

       

       

      The complete negation consumes the very expressions which negate.

      Aka, the doorway passed.....is the apperception that there was never a  doorway or a passing.
      That there are no attributable affirming terms, no attributable negating terms.
       


      The state of witnessing is not a state of inactivity.

      And yet there are no conditions to fulfilled, there is nothing to be done, nothing to be given up for the state of witnessing to become revealed.

      Simply the seeing..............that whatever perceived while being nothing but you.......is simultaneously..... not you, nor yours.

      Whatsoever perceived, ...........whether substantive, tangible, rock solid like a biological body-mind organism .......

       

      .....or nebulous like thoughts....

      ..are all in the field of consciousness.

      The real, is not the field, nor its contents,

      nor even the knower of the field.

       
       



      The arising ideations that something is to be done, or it's opposite aka something is not to be done..... ensures as a consequence........ entanglements, identifications.

      Thus...... FOR that arising ideation, .............there is stuff to be done, there is stuff being done ...

      ...there is stuff to be avoided,

      there is stuff which have been successfully avoided.

      And hence to that primary arising ideation ..............there are results, consequences.

      Results and consequences, which in turn brings about more ideations of a sense of success or failure.

      And consequentially more ideations of a sense of suffering or pride of achievement.......thereby a sense of motives, desires, objectives, goals.

      Entanglements and identifications .............meta morphing .........into more hoopla.


      To want to be free of entanglements and identifications, is being entangled, is being identified.



      Simply the quiet alertness witnessing whatever is happening.

      Whatsoever.

      The cacophony of inner chatter............ the cacophony of outer actional frenzy.

      The temporary sublimation of that cacophony through the happening of the utilization of a tool, of a technique.

      The end of that temporary sublimation, given the happening of some impacting event aka, the ringing telephone, the nasty neighbor, the irritating spouse....
      ...... breaking the sublime meditative peace which had resulted through some fine esoteric breath-related-meditation techniques.



      The cacophony .......

       

      ......the durational sublimation of cacophony...

       

      .....and the rebirth of the cacophony in time..

      .... is the cacophony.



      A quiet alertness witnessing
      whatever is happening.

      Whatsoever.


      Including the arising of a body which changes with time

      and then dissipates after a duration.


      Is that so substantive, so solid, so real.........so much .....an object of self-identification....anything more than a durational ideation?


      Body, feelings, thoughts, ideas, time, space, being and not being, this or that ....

      ..... are they anything more than durational ideations?


      Arising, subsiding like tides........watched as quite alertness.


      In and as that quiet alertness, arises love.

      Not as a choice, not as an attachment, not as an expectation of reciprocity.


      In love there is no other to be loved, to be selected or attached to or expected from.


      Whether the presence of love or the absence of love......there is no other.


      In quiet alertness...........there is the absence of conceptualization of a "your-self" and hence an absence  of the conceptualization of a "my-self".


      In the absence of the self ......

       

      .........which is the absence of the sense of a need to term.......

      ......what terms,

       what cognition,

       what awareness,

       what witnessing,

       what consciousness,

       what bliss?



      And thus in and as quiet alertness.....

       

      .....even quietude and alertness is un-awared.
