Everything that you see, everything that crosses the vista of your canvas is an aspect of You, of pure, boundless Awareness. But more than that, everything that has manifest, whether it is in your visual sight or not, is an aspect of You. For now that you have seen with clear sight that there is only one Self, one ‘I’, one Awareness, that your awareness is not separate from my awareness, that there is no ‘I’ and ‘you’ in any absolute sense, perhaps now you can answer the question. Does the world exist without You? When this question was first put to you, you thought I meant does the world exist without Averi, and of course you baulked. But now that you have discovered what ‘You’ are, that you are prior even to Averi, that you are undifferentiated Self, indivisible Awareness, that you are that principle in which Averi appears, how clear it suddenly is that the world must and can only appear in You. This form in the shape of Averi appears within You, as an aspect within You, indivisible from You. The personal ‘you’ appears within the Impersonal You. Just like the raven, the sea, the world.
A young psychiatric patient, known as Lili, is having a profound effect on both fellow inmates and medical staff alike. As she begins to unravel the truth of her hospital admittance, she persuades her sceptical psychiatrist, Katherine Kolinsky, to begin a search for Truth in her own self. Thousands of miles away in eastern Canada a young fisherman, Averi, is about to be capsized, both in the sea and in the heart. At first troubled and resistant, Averi surrenders at last to the inner journey, coming to see through the loving guidance of his friend and confidante, Nyx, the Reality of his own existence. As Truth unfolds and falsity is wiped clean, so it becomes clear that Averi and Lili are not separate, that the former lives in the mind of the latter, an alter ego and a signpost to Self-recognition. It shall take the delicate unpicking of a densely woven tapestry to cut through the layers of ‘psychosis’ and delusion. Only then shall Katherine the psychiatrist be convinced that ‘madness’ is not all as it seems.
