“Normally we think that there is one sky seen by many people. In fact there are many skies (that is, many perceptions) seen by one Consciousness.”
Perhaps this is a major stumbling block for many: that consciousness seems to reside inside the head, so it must be personal. We fall into believing this is true because that’s what we’ve been repeatedly told; that’s what our culture reflects. But what if that is not the largest truth? More and more I notice just how impersonal awareness truly is. Impersonal, yet completely intimate with all.
Each person who saw this sunset at the NADA retreat center in 2009 saw a different sky, from a different body-mind perspective. One consciousness, many skies.
