“Consciousness is that
which hears these words.”
To get out of the mess
we have to contemplate truth…
All of life experiences are images on the screen of eternity. The screen is real. The images change. Consciousness is the screen. When you identify with consciousness you become consciousness. When you identify with the image you enhance the image, and you worry, and fret, and fear and you have all sorts of experiences.
As soon as you begin to identify with reality, with consciousness, all fear leaves you, all doubt leaves you, all false thinking leaves you, and you become free. But that’s the only free choice you get. Everything else has been preordained.
Everything that is, has been, or will be; emerges from, is contained in, and returns to the Tao.
This is why the Tao is called, “Mother of All.”
We don’t need to search for her.
No effort is needed to find her.
She is always with us.
She is us.
From William Martin’s interpretation of The Tao Te Ching.
