"What I share is not based on spiritual, philosophical or psychological theory alone, but on direct insight. There is an unchanging awareness of all phenomena that is not tarnished by the coming and going of temporal expressions.
This unchanging awareness could be called the 'Still Self" as it is the one constant that witnesses the dynamic play of consciousness in all its guises. To recognize that there is a greater power that is not prone to suffering or corruption is to begin to awaken to our 'Undivided Self.' Within this dynamic play of life there is also a 'functioning sense of self' that allows for the beauty of relationship, creating the impression of 'me' and 'other.' But the possibility of this imaginal separation can create such confusion and suffering when taken to be all that we are.
My joy as a simple Being is to point you back to your 'True Self,' like a bird greeting the morning sun, my nature is to sing.
All phenomena, whether that form be a thought, body, planet, smell, theory, ant or cloud is bound by the law of impermanence, for whatever comes must go, whatever is born will die.
Yet all phenomena arise within this unbounded awareness, the sole unchanging reality. And all of manifestation sings the song of the unborn 'Still Self' for those who have ears to hear.
And when this unchanging nature is realized to be our 'Self,' then we may also come to see that this dynamic play of consciousness is no other than a clear expression of the divinity that we are. What we are as aware stillness and what we are as dynamic consciousness are not two irreconcilable opposing forces but an inseparable mystery I like to call 'dynamic stillness.'" ~ Mani
