Consciousness, Enlightenment and Spiritual Freedom

When you locate the non relative or absolute nature of consciousness in the deepest depths of your own self, you will discover and directly experience the source of enlightenment or spiritual freedom. As you awaken to the ground of your own being, you will find that consciousness is experienced as knowing. It is not a cognitive understanding—not knowing anything particular, but knowing itself. It is a clarity that is empty of content; a weightiness that is full of nothing in particular; a profound knowing that, because of its absolute nature, is experienced as being of ultimate value and meaning. This kind of knowing dissolves all questions, because the experience of that empty ground is the answer—the one answer that always liberates each and every one of us. That answer renders the mind utterly impotent. In that questionless state, you are profoundly rooted and radically free, supported by an absolute confidence in the knowing of no-thing that changes everything.
