"The objective universe is in constant movement, projecting and dissolving innumerable forms. Whenever a form is infused with life (prana), consciousness appears by reflection of awareness in matter."

"The source of consciousness cannot be an object in consciousness. To know the source is to be the source. When you realize that you are not the person, but the pure and calm witness, and that fearless awareness is your very being, you are the being. It is the source, the Inexhaustible Possibility."

3 days of protests in iquitos outside my bedroom window

ok, they weren't all outside my bedroom window, but they passed by on their daily and nightly rounds of breaking stuff and burning stuff whilst carrying big sticks.

a regular ace ventura
in the making

monkeys can be heavy and rather fickle. macaws, not so much.  but they like to nibble at ankles sometimes.

sri nisargadatta maharaj
rockin' the amazon - edition 1

Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginningless, endless, uncaused, unsupported, 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.  Consciousness is partial and changeful, awareness is total, changeless, calm and silent.  And it is the common matrix of every experience.
