Nisargadatta (Eu Sou:13) – Lugar da Conscientidade [consciousness]

sexta-feira 9 de setembro de 2022


tradução parcial

Q: O homem   plenamente realizado, espontaneamente habita no estado   supremo, parece comer, beber e assim por diante. Está ele consciente disto, ou não? — M: Isso no qual a conscientidade   [consciousness] ocorre, a conscientidade ou mente   universal  , chamamos o éter   da conscientidade. Todos os objetos de conscientidade formam o universo  . O que está além de ambos, suportando ambos, é o estado supremo, um estado de máxima quietude   e silêncio. Quem quer que aí vá, desaparece. É inalcançável pelas palavras, ou mente  . Podes chamá-lo Deus  , ou Parabrahman  , ou Realidade Suprema, mas estes são nomes dados pela mente. É o estado sem nome, sem conteúdo, sem esforço e espontâneo  , além de ser e não ser.


Q: The fully realised man, spontaneously abiding in the supreme state, appears to eat, drink and so on. Is he aware of it, or not? — M: That in which consciousness happens, the universal consciousness or mind, we call the ether of consciousness. All the objects of consciousness form the universe. What is beyond both, supporting both, is the supreme state, a state of utter stillness and silence. Whoever goes   there, disappears. It is unreachable by words, or mind. You may call it God, or Parabrahman, or Supreme Reality, but these are names given by the mind. It is the nameless, contentless, effortless and spontaneous state, beyond being and not being.

Q: But does one remain conscious? — M: As the universe is the body of the mind, so is consciousness the body of the supreme. It is not conscious, but it gives rise to consciousness.

Q: In my daily actions much goes by habit, automatically. I am aware of the general purpose, but not of each movement in detail. As my consciousness broadens and deepens, details tend to recede, leaving me free for the general trends. Does not the same happens to a jnani  , but more so? — M: On the level of consciousness — yes. In the supreme state, no. This state is entirely one and indivisible  , a single solid block of reality. The only way of knowing it is to be it. The mind cannot reach it. To perceive it does not need the senses; to know it, does not need the mind.

Q: That is how God runs the world. — M: God is not running the world.

Q: Then who is doing it? — M: Nobody. All happens by itself. You are asking the question and you are supplying the answer. And you know the answer when you ask the question. All is a play in consciousness. All divisions are illusory. You can know the false only. The true you must yourself be.

Q: There is the witnessed consciousness and there is the witnessing consciousness. Is the second the supreme? — M: There are the two — the person and the witness, the observer. When you see them as one, and go beyond, you are in the supreme state. It is not perceivable, because it is what makes perception possible. It is beyond being and not being. It is neither the mirror nor the image in the mirror. It is what is — the timeless reality, unbelievably hard and solid.
