just a thought about awareness, the infinite consciousness, and it’s manifestations:
the difference is an animal is awakened to its nature, which is the nature of an animal. a tiger is absolutely, without distraction, a tiger. it’s awareness fully manifests as a tiger awareness. for example.
a human being is almost never ever awakened to its nature. the nature of a human being is a pure awareness. it doesn’t have the limits of an animal, so we can freely manifest the nature of the universe. this is our true nature. if we do anything less, we are a tiger dreaming it’s a worm.
we do have something animals dont: potential. but we almost never use it!
how many of us are there? asks jesus.
buddha replies, after counting on one hand, maybe 8! hahaha hahahaha
