That which is seen cannot be that which sees.   The knife cannot cut itself.

 

In our language "That which is seen cannot be that which sees" But is this true? To say it is, presupposes that things exist, and are apart and separate from other things that exist.

 

If it is not true, then that which sees can indeed see itself the seer (perhaps with the aid of a reflective surface?)

 

My point being that when we get to this level, are we going to make our arguments using the words that we have already admitted, no longer have the ability to hold the meanings we are attempting to convey.

 

And herein lies my point that there is not one thing.

 

But 2.

Language only functions in the seemingly so of duality, the subject/object relationship.   Something is prior to language, or any dualistic appearance.   This can be seen.   Any "seeing" that is at a level of also being seen, is seen from a yet prior level of awareness.   The levels of subtlety strain any attempts to contain or convey what is in seeing from Source, as Source escapes from any bounds of locality and time.   What is "True" cannot be approached by the incomplete range of language, no matter how it may try stacking up evidence for a case with its facts by which it powers its limited view.   Within the thinking, reasoning, rational, mind's limited arena, what it names and describes are all that is.    We are truly not separate from Source.   We cease to be limited when true unmixed being is known, but there will never be a way to think of this true being as a thing. 

 

So, once again, here is an offering, a pearl of great value.   Accept it as it is, or make of it what you will.   It is a profound and simple pointing for those with ears to hear, and the urge to know.

It is the Monality that is the delusion.
