G: what responds ? does an identity need to respond ? if you
want to cling to an ego then go for it ......... if it is the mainstay of
your existence then fine ....... but why equate the Conscious
Awareness of Source with and without differentiation as ego ?
that is the limitational mind of islands........
there is Cosmic Consciousness that sees beyond distinction to
the Heart of ONE ...... and then there is ego which is trapped in
the illusion of many ......... complete with name, form , identity
and conceptual patterns of living acting and interacting that has
no cognition, or at most has had simply a momentary glimpse
into the Reality versus the transient show ....... for that one there
is only the divisonary world and mind chatter which brings
separation and shadow no matter how great the concepts .......
the show is neither real or unreal........
who is it that approves or disapproves in what is being written....
is it not simply the mind and it's ongoing projections ?
when that mind stills where are the projections and valuations?
the sage while seeing the projections is not limited to them or
caught within them but Lives within the Reality that IS ......
if there is no externalization ( catching in duality) of awareness
then simply Sat*Chit*Anand remains........ Sat*Chit*Anand is
the ONE either in motion which is seen as duality or static which
is beyond all such states ....... in either case it remains ONE......
