Sensing and perceiving arise spontaneously…but not to a personal self…even though experientially it seems and feels close enough to be “within” the sensory experience.
Subject (creation) and object (creation) appear only when sensing and perceiving arise and the brain/mind applies labels, names, and concepts to what is appearing. The brain/mind habitually attempts to categorize and quantify what is appearing when no such conceptualizing is needed. Applying a remembered concept or the creation of a new concept is what keeps the brain mind busy making a separate world where no separation exists. But only in a separate world do edges and boundaries appear – even though they are only projections and overlays over that simply is.
There is only This. What you are is an impersonal mechanism for sensing. You believe yourself to be separate and distinct and this is false. You have never been separate and the movements of the body have never been initiated by you.
There is only this…here…now….as what is….impersonal consciousness seeming to appear in an illusory dream of separation we call reality or life. And…there is no “within” and “without” unless you are playing in dreamscape, duality, the only place characters can play as self and other!
