I'm suddenly reminded of a part of a youtube video I saw recently... (the specific part is at 3:08 thru 3:40):

:wink:
Alongside the stunning aesthetic relevance of the video you shared, how poignant is the reading at that moment in the video:

"The universal dharma door is already open
The sound of the rising tide is heard clearly
The miracle happens: a beautiful child appears in the heart of a lotus flower
One single drop of this compassionate water is enough
To bring back the refreshing spring to our mountains and rivers."

Thank you for sharing. :D

Not sure how clear this seeing is, but here's how I see it:

Thoughts are little energies that emerge from and play on the surface of the ocean of all Energy.

Intuitive "feel-izations" are larger, deeper energies that emerge from and play in the depths of that ocean.

That ocean emerges out of Awareness.
I've had a fair few moments where this wholesome bodily intuition occurred and to be critical of some of those moments seems futile because truth occurs in its rawest and most organic form. It happened a few days ago whilst travelling on the tube. I was watching myself and people with a curiosity which developed into an intense awareness. I had a whole-body knowing about the transient nature of our physical forms but knew that this was not the end of the journey. I somehow knew that we continued in some odd way as another type of energy. I can't possible 'know' that as a truth in itself and so, when mentioning the contrast in conscious thinking and pure consciousness a few posts earlier, I wanted to try to filter out the sediment using intellectual intervention. There's probably no impurities though. :D

Sometimes I feel like that kid from the film Flight of the Navigator. In one particular scene, he's hooked up to various monitors displaying a wealth of foreign and other-worldly information. I vaguely recall the kid in an anxious state saying something like "What's going on!? is that coming from me!?"

I figure that I'll just tune-in as my familiarity develops.

That was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid! :D

Hello All, I was wondering this morning. The Awareness that is aware of our breath and Aware of our Rising anger. Does it have a Voice? Can we build a relationship with it? If this awareness is Source Herself how do we distinguish that voice from the chatter in our mind?

Welcome to the forum Sione.

To wonder if we can build a relationship with awareness is a bit out of context. I would suggest that you begin to know Awareness as your very own self. That part of us which would endeavor to build a relationship with awareness is that perspective one holds that we are somehow separate from it. We are not - accept in the experience of the belief that we are.

Rather than a relationship, I suggest developing a 'familiarity' with awareness as your own essence. Frequent moments of presence awareness, free of thought, is key to that familiarity. In time with repeated experience, familiarity will grow. Feelings of wordless appreciation of most anything is indeed Divine.

The 'voice' of awareness is more our feeling nature. That voice comes as insight (sight from within) and inspiration (In spirit). Identification with concepts and thoughts are built upon beliefs we adopt as truths throughout our lifetimes. Awakening, in part, is the recognition of this thought identification which then frees us to consider the/our underlying awareness that holds all thoughts within it.

Identification however, is not without value. It is rather ubiquitous in this human species. Identification creates opportunities of experience that would not exist if we were always clear on the larger reality - and experience is the point of this human adventure. Of whatever we accumulate in this lifetime, it is only our experiences that we maintain once we leave these bodies.
