Objects only come in and out of existence from the point of view of a subject, whilst I, Awareness, who am neither a subject nor an object and yet the reality of both, am eternally present.

Cease Investing Your Attention In Objects

What I long for is that period of childhood where all you were interested in was playing and having fun. No fear of death or life. Has the child gone away, or is just underneath lots of ideas?

Cease Investing Your Attention In Objects

Dear Rupert

Thanks for your detailed reply.

Thanks again

Dear Richard,

Yes, what you long for is just underneath a lot of ideas. That which is free of fear and death is not something that existed in another time and at another place. It is this very Awareness that is seeing these words.

This Awareness, which is simply another name for ‘I,’ is free of fear because nothing can harm or destroy it. It is free of death because it has no knowledge of its own disappearance. It is innately peaceful because nothing can agitate it. It is innately happy because it knows no lack and it is innately loving because it knows know other.

This ‘I’ is too close to you to be known in relationship. But it need not be known for it is what you essentially are.

Give you attention to it, which simply means cease investing your attention in objects. Notice it first in the background of all seeming objects and then see that in fact it fills and pervades those objects.

With love,

Rupert
