If we don't use concepts, assumptions, beliefs, associations, abstractions, labels... if we simply look without any overlay at what IS, right now, what is here?
How can you say? The moment we speak of it, think of it - we're already quantifying and qualifying it in some way. And inherently these quantifications/qualifications ASSUME their opposite, something "other".
The first assumption is "I AM". From this pure perspective of naked awareness, the first assumption to come in is "I AM" - I am looking. I am sitting here looking out and trying not to quantify or qualify. I am doing this or that. I Am.
From that very first assumption, the world is assumed. Because if there is a ME "in here" there must be a WORLD - "out there".
Yet we may see this initial spark of mind is on top of or added on to the already-present pure naked awareness - it happens "within" awareness - it comes and goes within this consciousness which never passes and never changes.
And from there the spark ignites the rest of the concepts we have about ourselves - I am in a body. I am thinking. I am in the world, separate and alone. I am seeking to know the Truth.
None of these are true.
This mental fireworks show is learned. It's conditioned. It's a way to make sense out of the inherently unknowable. Direct Reality is pure Mystery. Knowledge is illusion.
There is literally nothing that is known for certain, except the certainty of presence. Something is present - that "presence" is One - only separated into "things" by this process of conceptualization, starting with the first spark of "I AM".
It's a head-on collision with Mystery. And what remains of the wreckage? Pure Nondual and Timeless Being, untouched, unshakable Peace.
If you were born right this very moment, what could affect that Peace?
