If the process of “consciousness re-purification” reaches the 4th and 5th steps in the seven-step “journey” to Reality, then witnessing will happen. If witnessing happens, the constant flux and chaos will end and stability without boredom will begin to mark the relative existence. (When the WHO’s disappear, who would generate chaos? Who would hate the quiet that persons find boring or unsettling?) It will be seen that all is merely happening—independent of any illusions of the “mind” and its corrupted, illusory “thoughts,” independent of the body and the desires and fears that are generated by body identification, and independent of the illusions of personality. Realization notwithstanding, nothing can be done to obtain peace. Peace happens after witnessing happens. Why?
One factor involves the body’s fear of its time-bound nature. The “mind” (and the personalities that it generates as identities) desire to be eternal…not time-bound. When witnessing happens, the illusions of time (and therefore being time-bound) dissolve. The Realized know that time is a concept, so belief in time dissolves. When belief in time dissolves, the time-related fears and the time-related desires of body-mind-personality dissolve. Another result of Realization is this: the belief in the illusion of birth disappears, so the illusion of “experiences” that generate the false sense of being happy or being unhappy also disappear. Free of the concept of birth, persons become freed from fears about death and desires about continuity.
Why will so few ever understand this and then be freed from their bondage? Because (1) re-purified consciousness is rare, because (2) even if re-purified, the consciousness might not speak but might rest in the silence, and because (3) even if the re-purified consciousness does speaks, the hearing among persons is filtered through the body, the “mind,” and the personality; therefore, even if the speaking is internalized, the essence of the teachings is usually diluted.
When persons (whose consciousness has been conditioned) are addressed by that consciousness which has been freed of the effects of conditioning, persons will still filter the message through their learned ignorance filter, through their programmed filter, through their arrogance filter, through their conditioned filter, through their dream filter, through their multiple personality filter, and through their culture filter. Thus, the message which they think they have received is not at all the message that was offered.
The Original Understanding was and is amazingly simple, but multiple levels of filtration inspire most persons to complicate the message. As a result, they also complicate their relative existence as well. The message being taught in most cultures now is that simplification and de-accumulation are “out” and the complications of accumulation are to be accepted as “the norm.” Thus, the ability to differentiate true from false has been lost among persons, so they are walking about in their dreams while believing that they are awake. They are playing their roles in the "Drama of the Lie" while believing that they are not in a play and that they are not playing roles at all.
