- Soh Something I wrote before: "...this is a dualistic view that posits the reality of time, posits a beginning and end, as well as the separation between 'awareness' and 'manifestation'. To me I see that both 'awareness' and 'phenomena' (I'm just tentatively speaking of them as separate for now) have 'existed' from beginningless time, are co-arising, and neither can be said to be the source of another, neither are the first of another. But due to this view of inherency, duality, and time, it appears that there is a source of manifestation, that one came (or existed eternally) before another, and this view is later seen to be extraneous. Timelessness is experienced in the very instant of manifestation, not merely by residing at 'the Source'.
Furthermore, I say 'Awareness' and 'Manifestation' are both labels for the same thing - nothing hidden, fully manifest - and never was there a time when 'Awareness' exist without 'Manifestation' (which would be an view of inherent existence pertaining to awareness)..."
