If you were to recognize what you really are, you’d have to laugh for having overlooked the most obvious of obvious. Why do we do so? Why is the powerful truth of our being so quickly dismissed and relegated to the inconsequential? Why do we instead, favor looking in places where we’ll never find what we’re looking for?
It’s because we take for granted that which never leaves us, this that permeates and is at the core of all experience. It’s obvious that to be able to search, or to experience anything, there MUST be recognition that searching is happening, a perceiving of whatever the experience might be. THIS is what’s taken for granted. THIS is essential for any and all experience to be known. THIS is what you are! Verify this for yourself in your direct experience, and the search is over.
Whether it’s a thought, a feeling, emotion, sensation, or appearance, they’re being perceived, which is how they’re known to be happening. There’s nothing that you need to do to be aware, you are aware by your very nature. Now, what you may be aware of at any given time may change, but there is awareness of those changes. The awareness never changes, it remains present and aware throughout all the shapeshifting of appearances.
We discount this most simple undeniable truth of our being, because it’s so simple, too simple we believe. We instead base our identity on the things which are being perceived, which are always changing, rather than on what lays at the base of, and upon which all experience is built, which never changes. The wise build their house upon rock, the foolish, upon sand.
It’s often not until all manifest creation is removed from our experience, when we have nothing left to identify with, that we can see clearly that THIS is who we are, because it’s all that’s left after all else is gone. But even while all may be appearing, even still, attention can be given to this, this that makes all appearances possible.
Though the mind may discount this as basic and unimportant, realize that this judgment is what keeps you back from exploring and recognizing this most simple but profound truth of who you are. This recognition sets you free from the mind and it’s games, because the mind can never grasp this. You are what’s watching the mind and it’s world of creations. This is the truth that you are and have always been free.
