The “I” of a reflecting consciousness is the absolute of consciousness. The un-reflecting “I” is the absolute of all else; all that exists and all that is temporary. A consciousness reflecting is eternal, indifferent to time and without duration. It is a solitary permanence that could never be distracted nor prone to deception. It is the inevitable immanence of itself seeking nothing but its own reflection as it wanders from the world and withdraws into a silent repose. It never includes the “self” who occupies the outpost of time and struggles inside a universe that has no remorse and is the nesting ground for the complexities of humanity. The balance between the reflecting and the un-reflecting consciousness is the ground of desire: an insoluble drive to eternal completeness guided by spirit and wholly unbound from phenomenal malevolence of any kind.
