I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to Maharaj . Why not acknowledge being the body?There is nothing "wrong" with anything.
Resonates for me as well, that the True Self of Pure Awareness alone experiences consciousness which can as a passing experience occur through pure witnessing of the human mind. I don't recall Maharaj ever stating anything about the Human Experience though. Can you point me to that? Relative awareness merges with Pure Awareness as long as the pure mind functions. Yet beyond Pure Awareness lies the Source of all consciousness, the Inexhaustible Potential for Pure Awareness to experience conscious Oneness timelessly through this moment. So, Source and Pure Awareness point to different concepts. Obviously words are limiting, but bare with me.His point is that consciousness is a function of the brain/mind/body/Human Experience which - only as a passing experience - arises within the "True Self" of Pure Awareness - and he states "I Am That" - he comes to the realization of the essence of being.
If one's awareness experienced Source beyond this world of appearances, the potential for the thinking mind to project the concept of Source would be apparent. Hence Maharaj identifies with the concept of Source and thus of not being the body. That's my point. Maharaj denies his body identity yet constantly spews forth his Source identity. His thinking mind should have done some Neti Neti with the Source concept.
