Within the Scope of Awareness

Within the scope of awareness, which has never existed as anything, it makes no difference what arises and abides therein, for everything is timelessly free in never having known existence. This being so, it is simply a matter of remaining in the realization of that in all its immediacy. Other than this (although one might speciously posit something to be “buddhahood”) , in actuality nothing whatsoever has improved, because there has been no wavering from what is, like space, absolutely unconditioned.
