Excerpt About Nonduality
Presence Completely Coemergent with ActionIn the deeper stages of self-realization, and especially in the experience of primordial nondual Presence, the flow of Presence is completely coemergent with action. Action flows out completely inseparable from Presence, for the body and mind are inseparable manifestations of Presence. In some sense, there is no such thing on this dimension as action, for there is only the continuity of Presence, as a discriminated and patterned flow. Some of these patterns we ordinarily call actions, some we call feelings, and some we call states, but they are all nothing but Presence, the expression of the never-ending creativity of Presence. In other words, action here is ontological creativity and the notion of Presence as the center of initiative and action breaks down on this level of experience, for the center is completely inseparable from, and in fact totally coemergent with, the totality of the self.
