In the direct experience there is the opportunity to simply observe one self. It becomes clear that ‘I’ is not the body. The same process can happen regarding the feelings and the thoughts. As ‘I the soul’ becomes aware that it is not the body, nor the feelings nor the thoughts it can start contemplating itself. At some stage a new realization may happen. The realization that ‘I’ is nothing but a holding pattern based on fear of non existence.
If the sense of ‘I’ is let go of, consciousness reveals itself as the source of being. It is very different from ‘having’ an experience of connectedness. Consciousness itself does not have a centre from which it operates. It is therefore omnipresent.
As omnipresent consciousness is accepted, it is also seen as the source of creation.
