“Who sees all beings in his own self and his own self in all beings, loses all fear.” Upanishads
There is only one… and yet we live within a relative construct and all experience is relative. Yet… both relative polarities are the same consciousness in essence. The subjective is consciousness and so also the objective is the same consciousness. Thus to be holistically aware that you as a subject and all objects that you encounter… are the same consciousness… is to experience true holistic reality.
It is as simple as the experience that we are having right here and right now. I am consciousness… and you are consciousness. In truth… consciousness is simply watching consciousness because there is no other. And if there is no other… there is no fear. Fear only arises within the dualistic illusion that the subject is separate and different from all objects that it encounters. In truth… there is only one consciousness as both subject and object.
This week… let us cultivate holistic wakefulness. Let us be more holistically aware that there is only one and that all objects that we as subjects encounter… are in essence the same consciousness. Such is the nature of true holistic reality.
