Consciousness alone Is

static1.squarespace.comby Brian Thompson

Consciousness alone is.

All else is an appearance arising within it. Including all thoughts of there being a separate entity called “I”, or you, or even the rest of the entire “outside” world.

All is consciousness. All is within. Not within “me”, but within consciousness itself, in which this avatar I call “myself” is nothing but an apparent appearance.

Everything appearing within consciousness is nothing but a dream, which is every possible thing experienced, sensed, perceived, believed, or known.

There is nothing that could exist “outside” of this all-pervading consciousness that is all that you know.

There is only consciousness, which is the totality of this “awakeness” you and I both feel, which we can only express as “I Am”.

I Am, and I know that I Am—this I am certain. “I” exist. Not “me” the person, not me the so-called personality, but this aware presence that I seem to be.

My I Am-ness alone is real, nothing else is. Everything else is nothing but an unreal thought-object appearing within it.

This consciousness that I Am is all-pervading. It is omnipresent and omniscient. It is Absolute Reality. It is all I ever know since this “I” that I am is consciousness itself.

I Am That. I Am.

There is no personal me, as that is nothing but an illusion arising within the totality of the purity which is this unadorned presence of I Am.

When I think of myself as separate, I seem to be. But, when I know myself as impersonal, selfless Beingness, I realize that my I Am-ness is universal, interdependent, and co-arising with the totality of the whole.

There is no person to protect or defend. There is no separate individual called me who needs this or that to feel one way or another. There is nothing to avoid or resist. There is nothing to desire, as there is no sense of lack. For what could consciousness need? All such nonsense is nothing but an egoic illusion which only appears real when its apparent existence is believed in by the desperately seeking mind.
