It is only with an individual’s inquiry, investigation and awareness that Silent Awareness can be recognized. In the end, direct experience is the only way you will truly know who you are. Direct experience of your pure, infinite, eternal, untouched nature is the only way you can really be free.
What is amazing is the ease involved in direct experience. No teaching can help you. All one needs “to do” is observe what is present when the mind is still. Is an observer still present? Is there ever a time when the observer is not present? Is this observer “touched” by illness or pain? Or is it always untouched by the external world?
If you are tempted to answer these questions with the mind, let it go. Once again, the questions and statements written here are pointers. The “answer” cannot be realized with the mind. The “answer” is realized with direct experience.
This is an amazing benefit of this process. No faith is required. You don’t need to believe in anything. Just experience what is. When you have tested the nature of consciousness, you won’t need to believe in God. You will know God firsthand.
