Well funkyderek, it is confusing to the mind because what I am pointing to lies beneath and beyond the mind, so mind cannot grasp it.
No, it is confusing to the mind because it is nonsense.
My intention is not necessarily to confuse anyone but to get them to consider that what they actually and truly are is not limited to the concepts one has about oneself. There is something else that gives light to the mind, that is the"support structure" to what is unfolding within oneself as well as unfolding "out there". It is this that I am pointing to, and it is this which I say is what you really are.
That's not beyond anything. It's just a poorly-defined concept with no basis in reality.
"Pure awareness" is just that, awareness without anything attached to it. In other words, instead of awareness "OF" things there is simply awareness left standing on its own. Another word for awareness is "knowingness", so instead of "knowing about" this or that particular thing there is just the "knowing" itself. This knowing is ever pure, ever constant, and is peace itself. This is what you are.
Nonsense. Stop hijacking words to fit your ideas. Knowledge means knowing about something. Awareness means being aware of something. Whatever concepts you're trying to describe, you need to find more suitable words.
poppers, your ill-defined idea that consciousness is some mysterious formless entity that can't even be thought about has no basis and I think that's why you're so unwilling to really discuss it. You rubbish the word "concept" and try to redefine the words "knowledge" and "awareness" so that any attempts to reason with you can be easily dismissed. The concept you describe - and make no mistake, poorly-formed as it is, it's a concept - is a product of your mind, itself a function of your brain, the only part of you that can have knowledge or awareness of anything.
