Question:
I feel the energy as well, as soon as I sink into silence. I find the energy is intense and overpowering. I am not sure If it is the witness that is witnessing this energy or is it the mind that is feeling this perception. In our last session, we learned that sensations = touching = witnessing. Does this mean you are in awareness when you experience this energy? How do we go beyond these perceptions? By just being in silence as a witness?

 

Answer:
There is nothing other than the ocean of Awareness. Everything is experienced within Awareness itself. Every experience is made up of awareness.

Just like a wave is made up of water only. The wave rises in the ocean, plays in the ocean, dissolves in the ocean. It is not anything other than the water.

 

If everything is ‘Witnessing Awareness’, then what could energy be which is experienced in the body? 

Energy is nothing different from a sensation in the body/mind. ‘Sensation’ is simply a label for Awareness.

 

Drop labels and recognize the ocean of Awareness. You are Awareness! Everything is in Awareness! Everything is made up of Awareness! Everything is known by Awareness! Leave old conditioning behind dear! Wake up!
