When all phenomena are realised to be the mind’s manifestations, thoughts about outer referents are relinquished. When the mind is realised to be self-awareness, thoughts about red and white are relinquished. When self-awareness is realised to be bliss, thoughts of suffering and indifference are relinquished. When bliss is realised as freedom from reference points, thoughts of clinging to entities are relinquished.
