A Knowing that is beyond the mind

Words and image design by Brian Thompson.

There is a light that is beyond the mind, and you are That.

You are That which illuminates—the inner-knowing essence. You are That which allows you to know that you exist. You are not any experience, for you are the experiencing itself—an invisible, formless, and nameless presence of intimate understanding.

You are the Knowing.

You are the field of infinite awareness in which all things flicker into temporary being. But these "things” that we experience are all momentary happenings, and, therefore, are fundamentally unreal and cannot be said even to exist.

All observed things are a pulsation within awareness—a brief appearance whose perceived existence is due only to the duration of its pulse.

Does a spark exist? It can be said to be a fact, but it doesn’t exist. It has no reality outside of the precise moment of its observation. It does not “exist” outside of the mind that perceives it. It is only the mind that gives a spark its apparent existence, an existence which is entirely conceptual and has no independent reality of its own.

The human manifestation is no different—we don’t really exist, and yet, we seem to. It is only the duration of our physical body’s apparent flicker in time that gives the impression of temporal existence. But, and here's the kicker—time doesn't exist either since it is just a concept of the human mind. So, even the perceived duration of a "thing" is unreal.

All “things” are unreal, no matter how you look at it. All things, in truth, are no-thing at all. Everything is nothing.

A "thing" (including a person) is nothing but a concept, a projection of the human mind attempting to give an impression of reality to all that it perceives. While in actuality, all things have no independent existence. Nothing has reality but you. You lend your reality to whatever you perceive.

There is only one absolute reality, and you are That—the infinite theatre of consciousness in which all pulsations of phenomenal manifestation appear.

No matter what sparks of conscious expression flicker into temporary beingness, the aware space in which they arise remains.

You are That, the knowing presence you knowingly express as: I Am.

See the illusion of your perceived human body and mind as nothing but an unreal pulse within the non-existent concept of space and time. You are not the human flicker that you believe yourself to be—you are the awareness in which it, and all other concepts, appear.

You, however, are not a concept. Nor are you unreal, but the body-mind-ego is.

The presence of Awareness that you truly are is Absolute Reality. All things come and go, but your invisible presence that is the silence underneath every sound, and the space in which all perceptions arise and become known, forever remains.

Transcend the limiting concept of your ego-bound self and know your Self as the light of all Knowing.
