The selfless thinking mind under the function of the senses is aware or conscious of the physical body is going through pains, discomforts and illnesses or impermanent changes from time to time, and under the influence of ignorance and egoism, there are ceaseless egoistic actions and reactions that give rise to all kinds of impurities arising in the modification of the mind, where the mind perceives or experiences or under goes different states of the mind swaying in between turbulence and calmness, satisfaction and dissatisfaction, or happiness and unhappiness restlessly, but the selfless consciousness is not being affected by the function of the mind or the selfless impermanent modification of the mind at all. All the selfless impermanent changes, actions and reactions or impurities do not contaminate and cannot damage or hurt the selfless universal consciousness, or the embodiment of unlimited wisdom, indiscriminate compassion and unconditional bliss within and without all and everything.
The selfless universal consciousness beyond names and forms, beyond existence and non-existence, that is within and without all kinds of names and forms, that are selfless and impermanent, is infinite, unconditional and unlimited,
cannot be affected, damaged or destroyed. It is untouched by the selfless impermanence changes in names and forms governed by the nature's law of cause and effect or actions and consequences of actions.
It's the silent witness that is witnessing the selfless impermanent modifications of the minds and all kinds of selfless names and forms arising, changing and passing away governed by the nature's law of cause and effect. It
is selfless, attributeless, intentionless, nameless, formless, beginningless, endless, changeless, timeless.
To be free from the veil of ignorance and egoism, which is the source of the perception towards happiness and suffering, the perceptive cognitive thinking mind that hasn't realized selflessness yet, needs to be detached from the modification of the mind, the senses, the intellect and the ego, and stands as a silent witness observing the thoughts and feelings arising and passing away, without attachment, identification, craving, aversion, judgement or expectation, just like the selfless universal consciousness, or the silent witness.
Upon all the
impurities and modifications of the mind are subsided, upon the annihilation of ignorance and egoism, upon the mind attained the direct realization of selflessness, the selfless consciousness of this physical body that appears to be a distinctive individual consciousness due to the impure modifications of the mind under the veil of ignorance and egoism, is identical with or non-distinct from the selfless universal consciousness. Under the presence of the veil of ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness, it appears to be distinct or separated from the selfless universal consciousness.
It is like a mirror. When there is dust on its surface, we can’t see the reflection clearly. When the dust is removed, we can see the reflection clearly, but the mirror itself is always the same whether there is dust or no dust. The dust did not change or affect the mirror at all, even though the dust might change the appearance of the mirror (dusty mirror/dustless mirror), as well as affecting the reflection or the function of the mirror. The dust is the ignorance, egoism, impurities. The reflection of the mirror is the restless modification of the mind. The mirror is the projector screen that enabling the reflection to be what it is. The mirror is also selfless and impermanent, have a beginning and ending. The space within and without the mirror is unchanged, uninfluenced, unaffected, uncontaminated, undisturbed and undetermined by the selfless impermanent existence, function, changes and non-existence of the mirror.
So does the universal selfless consciousness is untouched or uncontaminated by any impurities arising, changing and passing away in the selfless impermanent modifications of the minds under the veil of ignorance, or upon the annihilation of the modifications of the mind, or by the ceaseless impermanent changes in all kinds of selfless names and forms forming, changing and disintegrating in this space of the universe.
As long as there's an idea of 'I' existing in the mind, that generates the sense of separateness, the selfless consciousness that is witnessing the selfless modifications of the mind under the presence of ignorance, egoism and impurities appears to be distinct or separated from the selfless universal consciousness where all and everything arise from, change, resting upon, and absorb or dissolve into.
