awareness

“Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginning-less, endless, un-caused, un-supported, without parts, without change. Consciousness is on contact, a reflection against a surface, a state of duality. There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep sleep. Awareness is absolute, consciousness is relative to its content; consciousness is always of something.” —Nisargadatta Maharaj ..*

“Awareness is primordial; it is the original state,

beginning-less, endless, un-caused, un-supported,

without parts, without change.

Consciousness is on contact,

a reflection against a surface,

a state of duality.

There can be no consciousness without awareness,

but there can be awareness

without consciousness, as in deep sleep.

Awareness is absolute,

consciousness is relative to its content;

consciousness is always of something.”

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
