Leave It Alone – Nisargadatta

flight of the eagle

N: “The one who has come to understand will never try to interfere in the play of consciousness. There is no creator of the vast intellect as such. All this play is going on spontaneously. There is no intellect behind it so don’t try to impose yours to bring about any change. Leave it alone.

“Your intellect is a subsequent product of this process so how can your intellect take charge of or even evaluate the whole creation. Investigate yourself, that is the sole purpose of your being. Spirituality is nothing more than understanding this play of consciousness. Try to find out what this illusion is by seeking its source.

“There can be no consciousness without awareness. There can be awareness without consciousness, as indeed, sleep. Awareness is absolute; consciousness is relative to its content. Consciousness is always OF something. Consciousness is partial and changeful. Awareness is total, changeless, calm and silent. And it is the common matrix of every experience.

“What you are, you already are, but by knowing what you are NOT, you are free of it, and remain in your own natural state. It all happens quite spontaneously, and without effort. It is before the appearance of beingness. This state is prior to, or beyond beingness and the non-being state also. I prevail in that state which existed before the arrival of beingness and before the arrival of no-beingness also. And you are That.”
