Consciousness is merely the witnessing process. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Consciousness is a localized platform for awareness. Consciousness is the interface between the mind-body and the all-enveloping field of Ĉonsciousness. Ĉonsciousness is the interface between phenomena and noumenon.
Consciousness is not something we see. It’s something through which we see. ~ George Mashour
Every organic entity experiences a separation between itself and its environment. This illusory concept – that self exists in an external world – is the duality we experience in everyday life, defining actuality.
Your consciousness itself gives rise to this world, which is a unified field, a unicity. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Nature is a cacophony of phenomena, performing on the stage of noumenon which defines reality. Actuality is a fabric of quantized energy, patterned by coherence, emanating from Ĉonsciousness. Ĉonsciousness is itself a unicity, which appears localized as consciousness, leading to sentience.
It is not really the individual that has consciousness, but it is the Ĉonsciousness that assumes innumerable forms. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
