Excerpt About Discrimination
Recognizing the Many Forms in Which Presence ManifestsThis discriminated and discriminating property of the essential dimension, and of the Essence of the self, makes it possible for us to recognize the many forms in which Presence manifests. This capacity is a reflection of the wisdom of discrimination, of the nous dimension of Presence. Our understanding is that the capacity of discrimination exists fundamentally on the ontological dimension of Presence, and it remains the same property or capacity in other dimensions but we do not see its reality because we have lost contact with Presence. In the experience of self-realization, this property gives the self a capacity for discrimination of such precision and sharpness that it is inconceivable in the conventional dimension of experience.
