Animated Emptiness – Nonduality the One Sided Coin

Animated Emptiness – Nonduality is a book I wrote about the true nature of being.

I speak of true being as a verb. It is Emptiness, which is not-a-thing yet it is not nothing – it is Nonduality as a one-sided coin.

It nature is Sat-Chit-Ananda, which is most often rendered in English as Existence-Consciousness-Bliss.

Sat means existence or being, which is a verb. This quality of being is not is space and time; an example of it is what most folks understand as Deep Sleep where there is no discontinuity to being and there is no experience of time and space [ this also illustrates how space and time are emergent properties].

Chit means consciousness or awareness. It is knowing that knows itself; it is not dependent on an object. An example is a being conscious that thinking is happening and being aware that thinking stops from time to time and that at such times there is no discontinuity to being aware.

Ananda means bliss. This bliss is uncaused as it is the bliss that is for no reason whatsoever. For example most people have experienced a temporary happiness when they have accomplished a goal or significant achievement; that quality of happiness is dependent on the object or situation and it is not lasting. On the other hand Ananda is happiness that is not temporary as it is not time bound.

In this way SatChitAnanda is the nature of authentic being. Animated Emptiness – Nonduality The one Sided Coin is a book I wrote that has many exercises and experiments that you can explore to get an experiential taste of this.
