By the way Mike and from a practical forum perspective, it's probably a good idea to refrain from the personal attacks. Frankly I don't care but someone else might or a mod might come across this thread.

I mentioned the baby getting sunburnt without entertaining a concept of what the sun is but it doesn’t stop what results in does it .

I understand that whatever is said about beyond mind or beyond I am is beyond conceptuality but life is life based upon what we experience and what we make sense of it .

I think at times this world of conceptuality is presented in ways to somehow discredit this life experience but if you get burnt regardless then what does that tell you lol ..

I do not disagree with anything you said in this post. The feeling of the big I AM is our true/higher self. The small ego I am is the, I am this or that. Conceptualizing the Big I AM higher self to identify with is great because the Big I AM higher self is truth, and is how our small ego I communicates with it. Conflict and confusion arises when a person indentifies his or her small ego I with a concept, a concept that originally had the intent and purpose of going through/past/beyond the small ego I to the Big I AM true/higher self. Concepts are not for the small ego I to identify with.

Did you not say that individuality is an illusion? But whatever you say my lying hypocrite master.

Good the Mod will know what a lying hypocrite you are

I mean my realisation reflected that there is only what you are and that hasn't changed since my realisation but who is to say that something else happens further down the line and there is the realisation that God has a God and that God has another God?

The ocean becomes a drop and the drop becomes another drop in the drop when once one realised what they thought was the ocean .

So it's difficult to solidify the unchanging true vantage point in any given moment isn't it .

Awareness is unchanging, at least to the extent I can determine. That's from 4 months to 61 years old. It's the exact same, unchanging.

Body has changed. Knowledge has changed. Emotions have changed. Memory has changed. Beliefs have changed. Pure non-dual awareness or consciousness is always the same. It just is. That's what is and only is. Nothing more, nothing less. It experiences without knowing, thinking, memory, belief. Thou art That.

By the way, that's one of the classic Vedantic proofs: The Five Sheaths.

One point of clarification. Jnana Yoga provides this knowledge and Raja Yoga provides the complementary experience.

You can find mention of the experiential aspect all over the place. Sadhguru, The swami, Eckhart Tolle, etc... They will all relate the unchanging nature of consciousness. We all experience it however most, the vast majority, simply aren't aware of the very nature of their own awareness. It's so very close yet so very far. It's so simple it's dismissed as nonsense. It does require diligent practice to experience and transform the knowledge into actual realization.
