Be a window unto the world

"Be a window unto the world" is an excellent pointer.

What it is pointing to is someone who is pure awareness and no interpretation.

Because to interpret what you see, to have an opinion about it, is to know (with content) and subsequently leads to preferences.

To "not know" (to not hold opinions) is to be undivided within. Is to be whole.

This not knowing is very deep and very pervasive, it enters all areas of interpretation by the mind.

Even the thinking that there is a "doer" and that there is something that needs to be done.

Rather the present moment is allowed to unfold beautifully.

And all of the above is a beautiful pointer for the fact that all there is "just this".

Whatever is arising right here, right now, that is all there is.

Rest in "this".

This is resting in the "ground of being".

Btw,

What I wrote up above is not a prescription for what needs to be done.

Especially since there is no "doer" and there's nothing that needs to be done.

It is rather a description of what already is.

All you need do is re-cognize it, realize it.

Liberation is.

Who is this "you" that needs to do things? :?:

All of the above is interpretation, opinion and preference.

There is no not knowing here, but rather deep and pervasive self delusion.
