Text from slides above - Pointing Towards Awakening:
-  What is a ‘self’?  What are you really?
-  What lies beyond what you think you are?

 

 

 

-  No idea or thought is true.

 

 

 

-  Does truth liberate thought from itself? 

 

 

 

-  Of what significance is the context of the self?

 

 

 

-  What is separate? Where is division?

 

 

 

-  Where is separation other than in the mind?

 

 

 

-  Do you know beyond any doubt that there IS a reference point, or point of seeing, called self?

 

   Where, and what is it? 

 

 

 

-  Everything only appears to be separate because you’re looking at it from the perspective of what  

 

   divides - which is the view of the personal egoic self.

 

   You’re not looking from the perspective of what is always already unified.

 

 

 

-  To see anything as it is - without any intermediary,

 

    Such as interpretation, distortion, judgment or opinion, 

 

    Just clear, simple as it is,

 

    Is to see the face of truth or God itself.

 

 

 

-  Truth is discovered through discerning what is false. You can never know truth, you can only be it. 

 

 

 

-  DIAGRAM of difference between separate self and True Nature.

 

 

 

-  Reality IS right now.

 

   Start thinking about it, analyse it, and you’ve stepped away from the direct experience here and now. 

 

   The direct experience IS what’s true.

 

 

 

-  You are not the pattern. You are the background and space in which the pattern arises. 

 

 

 

-  Coming to see what you really are is a doorway to an entirely different perspective, without the personal   

   self as a center point.

 

   It is the beginning of release from the limited, bound, personal identity.

 

   The beginning of a life of true freedom.

 

 

 

-  You are That

 

   In and as which

 

   Everything is arising
