Log in to Reply shankaraist says: August 12, 2019 at 6:59 am The attributelessness of consciousnes is in contrast with the (yours? borrowed from other authors?) claim that it has ability to form an image or ability to draw on some data. Another mechanism is involved – Imagining draws concepts from memories that were stored in unconscious mind. The newborn baby couldn't imagine anything, its library of concepts doesn't contain data storage that "grows in time" while consciousness is (as assumed) not bound by time.Consciousness is out of this world (beyond concepts) . Idea like "imagining" is a human construct from "mind" domain of unconscious and superconscious. Loading... Log in to Reply matthew king says: August 12, 2019 at 6:59 am awesome message Loading...

So every thing that has a form is actually a process and it is in time.But consciousness has no form. You can't see it, you can't touch it, you can't smell it, you can't taste it, because it has no form and because it has no form it can't have a beginning, a middle or an end. From where does consciousness comes from? The answer is it always is. So consciousness is formless has no boundaries, is not in time,is fundamental,is infinite. Consciousness does not comes from anywhere and does not go anywhere. It is timelessly now, not subject to birth and death. Loading... Log in to Reply Santosh Agarwal says: August 12, 2019 at 6:59 am Consciousness is timeless, eternal, formless, infinitely dimensionless fundamental reality but it's movement results in form and phenomenon.Let me do an exercise with you right now that will help you to free yourself from your current waking dream. So let us start with a mental experience. So let us go through following exercise.Close your eyes and imagine a beautiful sun set over a snow-clad mountains and you are having a mental experience and it's an image. So where was that image before you decided to imagined it ? and the answer is, it existed in your consciousness without a form. And then as soon as you imagined it, then that consciousness modified itself into a form. You can try this with any mental experience. So all mental experiences or phenomenon which are called, images, thoughts, feelings, emotions are modified form of the formless or consciousness. What about all so called physical experience or phenomenon? Look at my hand. Now look at that paining or look at some item of furniture in your own room or look at your own body. That looking is an act of attention and intention and that which you experience this hand, or that painting or that furniture in your room or your own body, which you experience when you see is a modification of consciousness called seeing that give rise to the experience of color, shape and form and we then called it an object but before we called it an object, it's an experience and experience is formless consciousness modifying itself into in this case an activity called seeing. Just like seeing is an activity of consciousness, hearing is an activity of consciousness, sensing is an activity of consciousness, tasting is an activity of consciousness, touching is an activity of consciousness. In fact seeing, hearing, tasting, sensing,touching are the ways consciousness knows an experience by modifying itself into that experience. Loading...

Thoughts are born and dies, feelings are born and dies sensations are born and dies, perceptions are born and dies but that which is projecting the experiences, the formless being is not subject to birth and death. It does not dies because it was never born. So when you shift your elegance from the dream to that which is dreaming, you are free. You realized that only the formless is real and that is you before me manifest in a form. So we are the formless being eternally manifests as form and phenomenon. This is what it means to have the fullness of the experience but not be bond by it, have the fullness of the experience but not be imprisoned by it. To be imprisoned by experience is called the prison of karma. Loading... Log in to Reply Santosh Agarwal says: August 12, 2019 at 6:59 am So everything that we called physical reality, the world, the universe, these are modifying activities of consciousness as form and phenomenon. So every form is a phenomenon and every phenomenon is a modification of consciousness. The form and phenomenon are in time. Consciousness modifies itself into experience eternally in what we called ever present now. So form and phenomenon are modifications of the formless.They go together. So why is this important? This is important because we confuse the form and phenomenon which are the projection of consciousness, we confuse them with fundamental reality which is formless consciousness. Then we not only get confused them, we attached our-self to the form and phenomenon and we say that is me. This body is me, this house is mine. We attach our-self and we grasp that which is ungraspable. Loading... Log in to Reply Kirk Russell says: August 12, 2019 at 6:59 am Atoms and light? Love…-Shi 4A Loading...

And In relation to this, do we see our loved ones after our bodily death? (in the same way they were with us in our human form).THANKS DEEPAK, EXCELLENT TALK.
