Erich: And so, you, as a conscious being, as you begin to identify yourself with the formless, changeless Conscious Presence that God is — which is therefore what you are, which is both formed and that which is aware of forms — you will shift away from flat-earth mentality, thinking you are a speck in the middle of infinity, doomed to death, to the realization of, "Oh, wow, all the forms of which I am aware are happening within the Changeless Context of Consciousness that I am. I have a form and I am that which is aware of forms. But, I am not a form being aware. I am that which is being aware of forms."
This is hard to talk about. I hope you are getting a sense of what I'm trying to say.
You are not a form being conscious. You are that which is aware of forms.
That which is aware of forms is not a form being conscious. It is that which is aware of forms, which looks like something. The form is not conscious, but the Consciousness that you are is formed.
This is relevant. This is pertinent. This is going to change our experience. When people discovered that the Earth was round, not flat, no one knew what it would mean. But, man, it has really changed the experience we're having.
When you shift from thinking you are a body being conscious to the realization that you are Consciousness, which is embodied, it's like turning everything inside out. It's going to make a big difference — in terms of your health, in terms of your wealth, in terms of your satisfaction in life.
I'll try to get clearer on this. But, the sentence that just keeps downloading into my mind is: You are not a form being conscious. You are that which is aware of forms.
Awareness is not a form. It is That Which is Aware of forms.
It's like you are the sky looking out at planets and stars. But, you, as the sky are not a form being conscious. You are that which is aware of forms in the act of being aware of forms, your own included.
This is good. This is good!
