God dwells within you as You, said my old guru Swami Muktananda. Ekchart Tolle would say Awareness dwells within you as You. Awareness has no name, because names and form are created by consciousness. Consciousness is Awareness in form that moves in patterns and laws. The Buddha (and Tolle) want us to see what these laws of consciousness (mind) are. Why do I suffer? What are the unconscious laws that make me suffer?
If I could SEE these unconscious patterns or laws, I would be free of them and their effect, which is my suffering, because the SEEING (awareness) is not held hostage by the LAW. (Hey, that sounds like Christ who is not subject to the law but comes to fulfill the law. Christ is a metaphor for Awareness.) That’s what awareness does…it connects the dots in the world of form to create metaphors that point beyond form.
