Spiritual terms explained.
That which is constant and beyond all modification. Synonymous with God.
To be awake is to recognize and know that you are neither body nor mind. Abiding awakening is synonymous with self-realization and enlightenment. Abiding awakening is a state of being where one no longer identified with thoughts. Self referenced thinking ceases.
Consciousness is the self-contained capacity that manifests form and formless and reflects its own creation unto itself. It therefore has the capacity to imagine its own existence. It includes individual consciousness, which comprises the dreaming and waking states.
The ability to recognize what is not evident to the thinking mind. In the absence of judgment, discernment reveals what is true. The ability to discern is fundamental to spiritual maturity and wisdom.
A mode of perception where the perceiver is the subject and all that is seen is objectified and therefore different to the subject. Duality requires a belief in separation. Duality shows up when pure consciousness perceives itself as an individual personal and misidentifies with the physical body.
Existence is manifest with the thought ‘I am’.
A stateless state wherein concepts cannot influence action. All actions come from consciousness without interference from the conceptual mind. It is the state of being fully human where mind serves consciousness. Mind no longer has the capacity to influence action.
Matter is the perception of particles manifesting in physical form.
The natural state prevails when attention is resting where it arises (within). The natural state is not a state of mind, though experientially there is calm, peace, joy, relaxed ease and happiness. It can also be experienced as emptiness where nothing is absent. Identification with thoughts does not arise in the natural state.
A mode of perception where what is perceived is inseparable; all particulars are part of the same unity. Individuality disappears. There is only the subject or non dual presence. Equanimity is perceived.
Pointers indicate a direction and not a destination. A destination by contrast would engage the mind in a conceptual idea of what is expected. A pointer allows an open space for that which is beyond mind to reveal itself to individual consciousness.
Prior to Consciousness
This is a pointer until it ceases to be a pointer!
That which is constant and unchanging. It is neither phenomenal nor conceptual and is best used to differentiate from that which is unreal, and changing.
Avoiding, denying or pushing away that which is present.
Having no self-judgment and no pretense with regard to ones own journey. Not hiding behind beliefs, image or ideas. Recognizing without deflection.
Spiritual practice is a natural ceaseless orientation towards Reality. Spiritual practice is inevitable because your true nature is inherently motivated to reveal itself through experience.
Withdrawing attention from any single mode of perception. Shifting to a wider perspective.
Truth is the non-conceptual recognition of what is Real. Truth is intuitively known to be Reality when there is full clarity about what is false. Truth cannot be objectified and it follows that there is nothing to ‘get’.
