I am Consciousness without an Object

I am Consciousness without an Object

Woke up last night at 3:00 o’clock aware that I am Consciousness without an Object.

For moments conscious about nothing but conscious.

Filled in an instant with love,

Prospects of life and death,

Years of memoried events,

Possibility alone with itself.

Nazis, morons, uneducated, cruel, careless, unkind, thoughtless, money is God.

Conscious, awake, in the moment so quick it’s gone.

No content; awake without an object anywhere.

Inspirations of joy and fear.

Envy Merlin, I am King Arthur‘s wizard, born in the future, conscious there,

not now.

Freedom is to choose how to be.

Freedom is nothing more to lose is Consciousness without an Object is nothing to lose.


Information   (months before the experience)

Franklin Merrell-Wolff expressed his similar Realization in the form of poetry and aphorisms. Regarding his Aphorisms, Wolff writes: “There are two lines of approach to, and employment of, this experience and aphorisms. They may be regarded as seeds to be taken into the meditative state, in which case they will tend to arouse the essentially inexpressible Meaning and Realization which they symbolize. This we may call their mystical value. On the other hand, they may be regarded as primary indefinables, upon which a systematic philosophy of the universe and its negation, Nirvana, may be developed. In this case, they may be viewed as a base of reference from which all thought and experience may be evaluated.
