Question: How is it that there can be a changeless being, when at the same time it is accepted that everything is in a state of flux?

Consciousness runs straight through all states of being. This is proven by the fact that the cause of existence must be present in anything that exists or it would cease to exist. The diversities of life are the diversities that spring from the Final Cause.

When was consciousness at any time not present? Even if you could say that at this time  or that consciousness was not present, there would have to be consciousness to observe non-consciousness.

We can still admit that individual objects were here and now gone, so this is still in accord with the statement that every “thing” is in a state of flux.

We can infer that there would have to be a fixed, unchanging observer that is conscious of all this flux. Conscious observation of “things”makes possible the illumnation of them. Therefore, consciousness is the unchanging cause of observable flux and must be fixed.

Remain still and validate this for yourself.

  1. In my perspective – Without the observer, that which the observer is observing ceases to exist, so the observer and the observed must be one and the same. Through this realization, I can say that consciousness, I prefer the word awareness instead, is always changing along that which I am being aware of.

    From a human point of view, I may think that observer is content but the observer never is, for each movement of the moment is a totally different moment with a totally different observer, the only constant may be is the word “observer” that is being used to express the experience though the language of words.

    Thank you for letting me share 🙂
