The subject-object relationship

Omkaradatta's picture



Let's take a look at the subject-object relationship (the notion that we are a subject in relation to an objective world), and see if there's any reality to it.



Is there objectivity?

Omkaradatta's picture



People believe in the subject/object relationship -- self and other. But is there any such thing? Is there objectivity?



Look for the mental representation of yourself

nancy pro's picture



When you observe the world, you observe in parallel a mental representation of yourself.



UNITY

MAI's picture



Things are objects because of the subject (mind):
the mind (subject) is such because of things (object).
Understand the relativity of these two and the basic reality: the unity of emptiness.
In this Emptiness the two are indistinguishable and each contains in itself the whole world.
