Remembering the Truth

Remembering The Truth


      Our theme here is presence, immaculate presence, bodhi, gnosis, moksha, primordial enlightenment, nirvana.  After we get experienced in slipping into the gap between two thoughts, the gap where there is no thought, we get familiar with the distinction between thought and pure consciousness.   We have introduced our self to our self.   This is the simple recognition of what we really are in comparison with the mind of thought generation and the identified ego-notion.   Because we learn to recognize, again and again, our primal essence we get to be more and more stable in our real Being and get adjusted in that relaxed presence. This is the unstained consciousness, the unattached spectator.   A higher kind of knowledge, a gnosis, a vijnana, transcends all the movements and distortions of mind.  Contemplation is the relaxation of the dichotomizing mind until relaxed presence becomes the continuity. For most people, the mind and its incessant chatter and the dreaming it creates is the continuity. The sage has changed the continuity and contacts the gnosis of reality. Everything is then known as a perfect manifestation of the energy of primordial consciousness and is therefore also known as fundamentally pure.   Knowing this let the sage relax; this relaxation does not require any intent to relax.   It just goes along with the innate state of presence and wisdom. Everything occurring in the “outside” world and everything occurring in the “inner” world of mind is known as “not two”; each simultaneously creates the “other” and they are nondual.   The way we conduct ourselves is eventually integrated with this state of presence and gnosis. In perfecting our conduct we learn to see all conditions as occasions to practice detachment from previous identity constructs.  Nothing needs to be transformed or modified.  All that is necessary is to see the truth of it all and remember that truth.
