Boars Hill. Carmelite Priory. Oxford. 16.10.11

You say it’s the first embodiment of truth, why is that?

Before the embodiment of truth, there was no realisation of truth in the self; instead, you had a vague knowing that there was something deeper to all you knew, but you could not relate from that depth. To do so would have meant that as awareness, you related from that, that you are of, but you didn’t. You continued to use self, relating to self and not truth, the world was your master but there was a deeper call, a deeper resonance, but no realisation, no revelation. When awareness has let go of the perceived reality, in not investing in the story, it falls apart, awareness standing then naked, empty, that formless awareness then has the revelation that awareness first emanates from something deeper than self, it has fallen through self, something that thought cannot do. Then there is a merging of the empty awareness into the formless origin, into something that has not yet manifested, and yet, is everything. This is the essential nature. Awareness realises this hidden nature, and via it’s awareness of it, embodies it via it’s attachments, that are no longer identified with, allowing the outer parts of self to reflect that understanding. This first embodiment is home, coming home. You know who you are. You can see that, and see from it. This is being in truth, and the truth in you.
