Excerpt About Mind
Mind Seen as Perception, ConsciousnessSo we're seeing here another meaning of mind, which is pure consciousness. There is perception, but that perception is not anything but the perceptivity itself. At this point we go into mind, not in a sense of it being just space, but of it being perception, consciousness. We see that we always have that consciousness. Every person, and every living thing, has this consciousness. In our everyday experience, there is always a consciousness of something; we never know consciousness by itself. There is always consciousness of the rug, my foot, my mind. The consciousness and the content of consciousness are never separate. The consciousness is always taken to be the content of consciousness, because that is how we operate with our limited consciousness. We never see consciousness itself, in its purity.
