No Absolute State
Kumar: I would still ask, how do you know that you are in the absolute state, assuming there is an absolute state?
James: You are the absolute state. Absolute state is just two words. And even if you were the “you” that would somehow be “in” an absolute state, how would you know you were in it unless you were out of it? You are the knower of the waking, dream and deep sleep states. The fictitious absolute state is just a waking state experience illumined by you. You have nothing to do with it. These words are just spiritual porn designed to keep a sensation-starved ego excited. See the duality: a state other than the one who is “in” it. There are no ins and outs for you. You are the non-experiencing witness of the one who fantasizes about being in and out of states. The words “absolute state” do not point to any object. They are just a clumsy attempt to describe you, awareness. You are “absolute” insofar as there is nothing other than you and all objects – thoughts – resolve in you.
