The term ‘witness’ is an interesting one from the very beginning. Witness implies some kind of conscious aliveness. Does witness exists in plants? Does witness exist in atomic structure? Or does witness only apply to…to…well, what? If knowledge is its own witness, and space and time are fully infused with knowledge, then knowledge is omnipresent and witness is omnipresent, even in rocks. What does this understanding do to sense of self?
If the aliveness of self is at root the T-S-K aliveness of witness, then witness is a wonderful thing!! :-) Then, my sense of self can be witnessed by knowledge and I can float more freely. I can feel witnessed by all natural structure around me, whether it’s the knowledge in the materials/elements of the house I live in, or the trees and animals and people around me – all equally experience of the witness along with the sense of witness within me that animates my body and sense of personal self. I’m swimming in witness.
