In the movement outward into the world of objects, you are moving farther away from your being.
Your being is here now. It is always, already available for you. Objects are situational, circumstantial - conditional.
In the world of objects and form, everything is relative to your geographical location. You measure the relational distance of the objective awareness of your body to another "body"- another person, place, or thing.
You are constantly comparing and contrasting based on your situational experience and "condition" relative to another object.
If we are merely objects, we couldn't have interpretations that are independent of other "objects". Which begs the question: "if we are not objective bodies moving through time/space, what are we?" We are in fact a subject. We are an experience sovereign and complete unto ourselves. No other relationship is needed in our experiential and existential observation, interpretation, or creation of our state of being.
The ground of our being - or subjective awareness, is what we build all other "additional" and superfluous experience on top of. We build structures streching so high into the clouds that the very essence that supports this extension of our being is covered with dense materials that suffocate, burden, and compromise the very core of what keeps us erected.
