Realization, also called unity consciousness, is the highest level of awareness. At that stage, individual consciousness is as connected with Cönsciousness as biology affords.
A sage behaves as a child with wisdom.
A sage lives honestly and simply, enjoying physical pleasures but not attached to them.
The intricacies and patterns of cöherence show themselves with unparalleled clarity, inspiring awe.
In being harmonious with Cöcö, intuitions and insights are mundane. Thanks to perceptivity and mental fluidity, sages are naturally wise, even those who are academically unlearned.
A sage influences without authority.
A sage’s aura of calm radiates and can be felt by others, even by those with dim awareness. The words and acts of one in realization impress others as exemplary.
A sage plans yet behaves spontaneously.
Goal-oriented preparation is a necessary aspect of living. Yet only by behaving spontaneously can intuition apply to the uniqueness that is every situation. Such is what a sage naturally does: retaining flexibility while working toward a goal.
A sage has skill without esteeming knowledge.
Skill is the application of knowledge. Knowledge is a conceptual classification.
A sage knows that abstraction is a shadow of truth, that the only value of knowledge is for its convenience in skill.
A sage feels contentment underlying discontentment.
Desire is an expression of discontentment: of wanting. As a sage is ballasted by bliss, contentment is still felt when discontent arises. This renders desires selective rather than compelling.
A sage knows that the world is an illusion.
Physics and biology have provided abundant evidence of energyism: that the mind creates the mirage of matter. Nature is deceptive by design. This scientific validation of Cöcö confirms what sages experience and gurus have taught since antiquity.
A sage experiences living as an extended dream: engaged but detached. The designs that comprise Nature are a wondrous perceptual buffet. The artifice of mentation is seen as a grand ruse.
A sage believes nothing and experiences everything.
A sage’s mind is cleansed of belief. Though convenient for skill, abstractions are known to be inauthentic.
This purity allows a sage to experience every moment as unique, without the bias of trying to classify and thereby abstract away the delicacies that lace the beauty of Nature. The mind’s concoctions are a confection.
A sage transcends inyō.
Dobe is the doing and beĩng that comprise living.
Doing arises from desire. Beĩng is pure witnessing: something which those in iğnorance have but brief glimpses of.
Desire compels those in iğnorance, who often tussle with purpose, meaning, and significance. Their desires sustain an inyō tension. This struggle occurs because nattermind clouds clarity. Many fear death because of this: not knowing what living is for and feeling attached to their perceived physicality.
Desire is transparent to a sage. Doing is merely a means to some convenient or aesthetic result. There is no “larger” meaning or purpose.
A sage lives in pure beĩng, which is imbued with bliss. Though pleasant, bliss is understood by a sage to be a ploy of Cönsciousness for ikigai.
A sage lives transcendentally, taking life as it comes without concern. A sage knows that incarnation is an endless wheel. Reaching the pinnacle of dobe paradoxically reveals that nothing really matters. For a sage, the inyō of dobe is resolved.
