You are aware.

You perceive 'ever-changing form'.

You seem to be (or have) a particular body/mind. However, is this body/mind that you seem to be (or have) not, after all, just another part of the 'ever-changing form' that is 'perceived' by what You are?

Because 'ever-changing form' is 'the perceived', NO part of it at all (such as ANY body/mind, or ANY subpart or 'owner' thereof) can actually BE 'the perceiver' of it, that You are.

Have you, in all honesty, ever actually had even a single experience of 'the perceived' (including the particular body/mind that You seem to be or have) having any perception of it's own, of any kind at all?

Surely, all You know is Your own perception.

You, as a 'perceiver', are always already absolutely changeless and formless.

As such, in truth, You have no location or edge, and so You do not begin or end. You are infinite and eternal, as the One unthreatenable Emptiness itself.

You are Pure Awareness.

Peace.

If I understand what you are saying,it goes back to the phrase , I am not a human having a spiritual experience,I am a spiritual being having a human experience.

What you describe relates well to an experience in the formless environments.  You simply are and a part of the whole, no beginning , no end.
Pure Conciousness.

Pretty much, yeah. I would say, however, that a more accurate version of that phrase would be, "I am not a human being having a spiritual experience. I am THE Spiritual Being SEEMING to have a human experience."

Because ultimately, there is only ONE Spiritual Being.

Fair enough. I was hoping for a friendly disagreement that might have initiated a nice little experiential exploratory discourse. All good, though. If everyone's already on board, that's great. Smiley

Sounds very much like solipsism to me.
