The Infinite

The reason man feels like a localized occurrence is that he experiences the unverse via his senses. Close your eyes. Suddenly, there is no point of view. Close your nose. Suddenly, there is no center of olfaction. The man who shuts his eyes to meditate thinks that he is no longer aware of his location, when, in fact, he has no location. His location was an illusion created by his senses. He is not a localized occurrence. He is the whole occurrence. His sensory inputs have only made him feel like a center, for there has to be a seer for anything to be seen. Intentional perception splits the universe into the perceiver and the perceived because it emerges from a center of intent. Unintentional perception does not do that because there is no center of intent. The perceiver and the perceived are unintentionally and unknowingly one. Thus, in the world inside your eyes, you may be a center of intention. If you let go of your sensuous inputs and its resulting perceptions, you see that you are infinite.
