Contemplate. You are primitive man, you may even think of yourself as the first man, indeed the seed of the first man is within us all. You are sitting in a forest and looking around you. You have no concepts, no comparisons. You do not know what a tree is, you cannot tell one from many, you do not understand form, you have no definitions, there is no dichotomy. You look around you, you see a blur of colour and energy, you feel that blur. The sounds. You do not know a bird is a bird or rain is rain. The very beginning of awareness. You are simply part of a process, of energy passing through, of one form taking on another. You are perhaps joyful, but you do not ‘know’ even that. You are simply being.
