Watching

“San, what happens in watching the display of thought, as me and my world”

~~~~

The watching of the me and my world, includes the watching of the question which has risen, aka “what happens in watching…”

After all what is the me in the moment….other than that question in and as that moment.

The watching of the dazzle of thought, reveals the immediate display as a perception of something…. which is nothing but the ascribing of a meaning…..

…..AND….a sense of ownership about that ascribed meaning.

The ascribed meaning….immediately construing the me,

….as the sense of ownership of the meaning.

Watching reveals…..that all this razzmatazz….

….is notional, seemingly…………as-if.

Thought has never been able to construct an actuality of a me-the-owner.

Or a world of that me-the-owner.

Objects………sans persona.

Just the dazzle of a razzmatazz.

This stage of watching, has been referred to…..

… by hip-hopping dudes…

…. as mindfulness, as the stage of witnessing, as the end of ignorance and identification, ….Christ on Cross…shit-on-sticks…

…..et al.

It’s like the ascribed meaning of an object in darkness, held to be a snake, is now seen to be…….. only a dirty rope.

In this stage of witnessing, thought is not able to create the further movement of an urge to change, alter, improve, ascend from….. the content of the moment.

The watching as a witnessing, is really that nothing could have been otherwise, whether physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, extra-spiritual.

Ergo, the content in and as the moment, the reaction, response, if any, the consequential effect..

..the totality of that drama is the content of the moment…

…. which could not have been otherwise.

So where could the stake arise and stick……the stake as a need to change, something anything, whether oneself or anything of the perceived world.

The watching as a witnessing is freedom not necessarily from action, physical, mental or emotional…..but from the conviction, belief, yearning, hope, desire……..that such an action should amount to something, to anything.

Presence of action……….. witnessed……… to be no different….

……. to absence of action.

Thus the Ramanas, Nisargadattas……

…..epitomes of least concern…..about what is happening in them…… what is happening around them…..

….. whether the milieu is social, communal, global, galactic, inter-galactic, or at the Universe level.

Coming back to the much reviled snake.

The snake pooofed……..and yet the rope still around…

….. as a rope.

Which is once again an ascribed meaning.

There is nothing as self, there is only Self..

…is just fancy footwork of a dancing thought.

The sense of watching as witnessing…

…is still the ascribed meaning of a witnesser..

…witnessing……..something…..anything.

This very sense of witnessing………watched.

Now, thought comes back as the clever mind , with, “Oh that’s just an infinite regression. Now you have to watch the watching of the witnessing, etc”

The watching of the witnessing……..an implosion.

No questions, left.
