The Deepest Mystery is that of the Noumenon.
The Noumenon is not the phenomena. Noumenon is the unqualified Awareness that you are. The phenomena is anything which is an object of your consciousness. All material, mental, emotional, astral, monadic, cosmic ( that includes planets and the like ) and even metaphysical things are of the objective class. Space – Time you can also perceive – therefore even this is an object of your awareness and you are therefore beyond it. In other words all this is perceivable by a perceiving consciousness which you are and of all other things you are beyond. Whatever is perceivable is transient and should be discarded by someone of Wisdom.
When all these phenomenal pastimes are seen for what they are (inconsequential and ephemeral) you will lose interest and your awareness will shine Itself on Itself. Your mind will no longer be enamoured by any phenomenal thing. It doesn’t mean you won’t study or practice your craft, as I also do, but you will experience these things as a mirror does. The mirror is untouched, unblemished, unaffected by whatever is reflected in it.
“Who Am I?” is the remedy for all this transient “drama”. All the planets, religious, philosophical and shamanic interests you and I are involved in are dreams within dreams. They are occupying our consciousness and don’t have any real lasting value. The eternal has no birth or death and is the only things worth occupying our minds. All else should be discarded from Consciousness – that is the true path.
Sri Ramana Maharshi, the great sage if Arunachala, India had transcended the notion of phenomenality and dwelled perennially in Eternal Awareness. His eyes are said to be in Shambavi Mudra. This is like a mirror – reflecting but unaffected. All things are “seen” but the gaze is ever inward – on Self. There is no movement in Consciousness even though apparently a wise person seems to act like others. So continue your work with Love. Don’t think too much – don’t verbalise – don’t dream ( except of yourself sleeping and really high level spirituality dreaming all these things ).
Here are some verses which can elucidate further what is being said. These are excerpts from the great work Ashtavakra Gita.
