The Witness (Parusa/Prakriti)

“The Witness (Parusa/Prakriti)” is From Destroy It Up’s Sutra.


I am the wave that forgets the sea
I am the forest for the trees
I am the grain that forgets the sand
All of the world in the palm of your hand

I am the cop that shoots the kid
I am the mother that flips her lid
Like a bird that never learns to fly
All of the world gone in the blink of an eye

Bear witness to it all
Bear witness to nothing at all

I am the blind man who stands on his feet
Carrying the lame man who can see
Step outside the matrix, look behind the screen
All of the world sits outside of me

Yoga Sutra In Sanskrit:

1.16 tatparam purse khyateh guna vaitrsnyam

English Translation:

When the ultimate level of nonreaction is reached, pure awareness can clearly see itself as independent from the fundamental qualities of nature. [Chip Hartranft]


Dual vs. Non-Dual — this is the great debate. Patajali tells us we must remove our awareness, our witness, from nature and transcend even conscious thought, in order to be truly awake. The non-dual crowd argues the opposite and says we must dive into the interconnectedness of all things. This song is the push and pull of that grand argument.
