I think the words Isness, life, absolute, god, fundamental consciousness, and such are interchangeable.

Could you tell the difference between "more awareness of the "Isness"
and "less awareness of Isness"?

No. It’s not quantifiable. However, I think you do fall more deeply in to it. You never arrive anywhere. But there are definitely something like depths to it.

Hi. :)

there are definitely something like depths to it.

Could you describe this using your everyday life as an example?

Yes. At work I won’t be as deeply in it as I will as I am right now, after having done yoga. In meditation I go very deeply in to it, so far that even thoughts subside and only the sea of consciousness remains.

So there is an "I" that goes deeper and then to the surface?
Is that all a metaphor for something?


What is deeper and not deep in ordinary terms?
When you are eating French fries, is it deep or shallow?

No. It is always beingness. Coming and going. There is no eating French fries. French fries eat us, silly. Just kidding. No but yeah eating French fries can be a deep practice anything can be. But sometimes we come to the surface.

Neither. Or both. It depends on where we want to be when we are eating French fries.

Are there several "places to be" when eating French fries?
What does that mean?

Now you’re just being obtuse. No there are no places to be. But one can be as deep or shallow on the experience of beingness while eating French frowns as one wants to be.

Hi. Sorry if I have irritated you, Scotticus. I didn't mean to.

Could you describe what "deep or shallow on the experience of beingness"
is? I would say, what do you mean by "experience of beingness"?
Is that a kind of state one is in?

Warm regards,

Bananafish

I would say it is awareness of beingness and there would be degrees of depth to this. Elena even speaks of this in her book, Liberation Unleashed. You can go deep into awareness to where all thought stops. But here, you can not deal with the world of shape and form, work, drive a car, pay taxes. When you’re at home, not needing to deal with the Namarupa, the real of shape and form, you can go deeper into the state of beingness, into a deeper samadhi. Thoughts stop. Space and time are transcended. You can’t pay taxes or work from here, but you’re at home and don’t need to. It’s the same beingness that always was, is, and forever shall be, but a greater depth of it.

Hi. :)

It is about you, not LU or Elena or samadhi, is it?
I'm asking about you, not about what other people said somewhere.


Is "experience of beingness" a kind of state you are in and out?

Yes or no?


Warmly,
