There are stages of insight one passes through as we move from apparent realities to ultimate reality.
Fore, step back a moment for me please
- how could one know an 'ultimate reality' if it has no sense?
- how could one know there even is an 'ultimate reality' if one is judging it by it not being sensed or able to be experienced?
For me, I'm fine if at some point there is nothing - no sense, no nothing in individuation - but I don't understand how it can be pointed to by being the absence of...
There is no such thing as the absence of ...what is... eternal.
Before the big bang there were still all the elements of ... and the elements of creation energy are vibrantly and eternally changing in form, combining and multiplying and varying and mutating (not necessarily a bad thing) into and as a different form or vibration of creation energy.
Therefore where is, why would it be, and how is it possible for it not to know its own experience by variation or distinction?
If you're talking about a distinction between physical, limited senses versus unlimited senses and awareness of the balance in eternal equilibrium where the distinctions are as creamed as the ingredients in a caramel, that's one thing - but it's the 'absence of' awareness of the distinctions that doesn't fit for me.
The awareness that is experienced as the five senses in physical limitation does not diminish in capacity, awareness is unleashed from the restraints and slowing down / breaking into parts of the totality of awareness.
Sure its not personal, but always is it experienced in varying degrees.
I guess that's why I honour a lump of wood as much as a butterfly or a newborn baby - the energy always is, no matter what or where or how it is 'appearing'.
There is no 'ultimate' misery or happiness, not in form or out of form. There is only perceptions of experience amid creation energy in motion at varying dimensional awareness of elements of the equilibrium of all energy in motion.
If you taste sugar and cream separately there will be a different experience (nuance) to tasting a blended caramel. If you attune your hearing to one note in a symphony you can, with attention and dedication 'align' with that note throughout by distinguishing and separating it from others, we can train the brain to distinguish and it's a matter of creation survival in this form to do so.
But, that's not just a 'physical' capacity, it's an elemental capacity of attention and experience of creation energy itself.
Awareness does not diminish - it just changes form.
