[SUBJECT:] The MIND is the Union of being ‘𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗲’ [T1] and 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝘁𝘆 of inherent existence [T2] [U2T], whether we are an ordinary sentient being (unaware of this) being or Buddha (aware of this).
[OBJECT:] The true nature of EVERY-THINGS, all dharmas, the three spheres -- subject, relation / action / process, object --, is the Union of being ‘𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 / 𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗼-𝗮𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗳𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿-𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀’ [T1] and 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝘁𝘆 of inherent existence [T2] [U2T], whether we are an ordinary sentient being (unaware of this) being or Buddha (aware of this).
[SUBJECT & OBJECT:] Subject & object are inseparable, interdependent, co-defined, co-relative, co-emergent, co-evolving, co-ceasing, in harmony, non-dual (not different, not identical, not both, not neither). One cannot exist with/without the other. They have the same essential primordial nature. One is not more important than the other, or prior to the other. They are co-emergent / co-evolving manifestations of the Ground / Basis / U2T.
So when we say that the primordial essential functionality of the MIND is to be ‘𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗲’ ... we mean that the mind is primordially essentially ‘𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 / 𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗼-𝗮𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗳𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿-𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀’.
And when we say that EVERY-THINGS are ‘𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 / 𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗼-𝗮𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗳𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿-𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀’ ... we mean that every-things are primordial essentially ‘𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗲’.
The only thing that is unborn, unchanging, unconditioned, unceasing, pristine ... is the fact that everything -- including the three spheres and all opposites -- is empty of inherent existence, like illusions [T2] <==> because interdependent / aware / inter-acting / exchanging / communicating / collaborating / conventionally dependently co-arisen relatively functional ever-changing impermanent appearances [T1], merely labelled / imputed / conceptualised /classified by the mind in co-dependence with its co-conditioning / co-karma -- and vice versa; one aspect / truth implies the other [U2T].
The only Real Ground / Basis / Reality as it is / Suchness / Dharmata / Dharmadhatu / Mahamudra / Buddha-nature / Genuine-emptiness / Primordial-awareness ... is this inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T], or Union of the three spheres [U3S], or Union of opposites [Uopp] -- free from all extremes, free from all dualistic conceptual proliferations, free from all limitations, free from all co-conditioning / co-karma. Nothing more, nothing less. So simple that it is hard to accept, so it looks difficult to realise.
And this 'inseparability', 'interdependence', 'inter-action', ‘co-relation’, ‘co-dependance’, 'co-emergence', 'co-evolution', 'co-cessation / co-transcendence', 'harmony', 'non-duality', ‘interaction’, ‘dialogue’, 'communication', 'collaboration', ‘co-creation’, ‘co-conditioning’ of the three spheres -- subject, relation / action, object -- [U3S] is the Karmic Cycle. Meaning each sphere is conditioned by the other two, and is conditioning them. The three spheres are conditioned and conditioning together.
"Karma manifests as your 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 with the environment” (i.e. Union of the three spheres [U3S].)

If we put apparent opposites like ‘the three spheres -- subject / mind, relation / action / awareness, object / phenomena --’ into the Madhyamaka Machine we get:
In our ordinary experience, there is the world and there is you. Recognizing this does not mean that you are going against the Buddha’s teaching of egolessness. 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲, 𝘄𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗵 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗰 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗵. You cannot negate that you taste a good cup of coffee. You cannot say that there is no coffee and there is no "you" to taste it—there are such things! Mindfulness of life is based on that kind of immediate appreciation. The meditation practice is to learn to appreciate the immediateness of what is happening right here and now.

The Wheeler Eye: universe (U) observing itself.
An attempt to illustrate the universe’s reflective, metacognitive nature.
"In 1979, the celebrated physicist John Wheeler, having coined the phrase “black hole”, put it to good philosophical use in the title of an exploratory paper, Beyond the Black Hole, in which he describes the universe as a self-excited circuit. The paper includes an illustration in which one side of an uppercase U, ostensibly standing for Universe, is endowed with a large and rather intelligent-looking eye intently regarding the other side, which it ostensibly acquires through observation as sensory information. By dint of placement, the eye stands for the sensory or cognitive aspect of reality, perhaps even a human spectator within the universe, while the eye’s perceptual target represents the informational aspect of reality. By virtue of these complementary aspects, it seems that the universe can in some sense, but not necessarily that of common usage, be described as “conscious” and “introspective”…perhaps even “infocognitive”
From Pointing Out Ordinary Mind - Dzogchen Ponlop - 072
Appearance-emptiness means that all outer phenomena—forms, sounds, smells, and so on—have no true, inherent existence; at the same time, they appear clearly and precisely to our five sense-consciousnesses and conceptual mind. Thus, they are appearance-emptiness. [U2T-subject]
Awareness-emptiness means that the perceiver of the five sense objects—the inner awareness—also has no true, inherent existence. Just as the outer world of phenomena is appearance-emptiness, all inner experiences of consciousness are in the nature of awareness-emptiness. [U2T-object]
Bliss-emptiness refers to the experience that arises when inner awareness meets outer appearances, when subject and object connect. [U3S] That contact produces sensations, which are of the nature of bliss-emptiness. The meeting of awareness with any object can bring the experience of great joy, great bliss, unified with emptiness. [U2T-3S]
Mind ~ Mingyur Rinpoche
There's no difference (or identity ...) between what is seen (object / luminosity)
and the mind that sees it (subject / mind).
– Mingyur Rinpoche
Full knowledge dissolves the 'distance'
between knower (subject) and known (object)
that characterizes conventional not-knowing.
With no distance (between knower (subject) and known (object)), an intimacy (Union) of knowing emerges,
and knowledge becomes inseparable from love.
~ Tarthang Tulku
In the Introduction of the book: Now that I Come to Die, Longchenpa
The Innate Beyond Subject And Object ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Phenomena (objects) are the radiance of the innate absolute; (i.e. manifestation of the Ground)
Mind (subject)’s nature is the wisdom of the innate absolute. (i.e. manifestation of the Ground)
The ultimate teacher – phenomena (object) and mind (subject) merged in one taste (Union) – (i.e. Union subject & object)
Dwells naturally within myself.
Ah ho! What a joy!
~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
quoted in the book The Tibetan Buddhism Reader
The unity of emptiness ~ Sengcan
Things are objects because there is a subject or mind;
and the mind is a subject because there are objects.
Understand the relativity (interdependence) of these two
and the basic reality: the unity of emptiness.
(i.e. Union of the Two Truths about subject & object & action [U2T-3S]: Union of interdependence & emptiness of inherent existence about the three spheres.)
In this Emptiness the two are indistinguishable
(i.e. Union of the three spheres [U3S]: Union subject <==> relation / action <==> object.)
and each contains in itself the whole world.
If you do not discriminate between coarse and fine
(i.e. Union of opposites.)
you will not be tempted to prejudice and opinion.
Doer and doing ~ Nagarjuna
A doer (subject) arises dependent on a doing (action),
and a doing (action) exists dependent on a doer (subject).
Except for that, we do not see another cause for their establishment.
(i.e. Union of the three spheres [U3S]: Union subject <==> relation / action <==> object.)
quoted in the book Meditation on Emptiness
Perceiver and Perceived ~ Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche
In absolute terms, each moment of experience is empty of a difference (or identity) in nature of perceiver (subject) and perceived (object). Rather than regarding consciousness (subject) merely as the seeing (relation / action) or observing aspect of a moment of experience, it is also the content (object) of that experience.
-- Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche
from the book Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness
A mere indescribable luminosity ~ Maitreya
If what appears to be apprehended (object) does not exist by its very own essence apart from that which apprehends it (subject), then what appears to be the apprehender (subject) does not exist either. The reason, here, is that the apprehender (subject) exists in relation to the apprehended (object), not in isolation.
Therefore, awareness is devoid of both apprehender (subject) and apprehended (object) (, and relation / action / apprehension), in all their various forms. Free from subject and object (and relation / action), by its very own nature awareness is a mere indescribable luminosity.
(Note: "Free from" but not without. Free means not being slave to, not fooled by.)

Let appearance and awareness be indivisible ~ Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
Do not divide appearances (OBJECTS / UNIVERSE) as being there
and awareness (SUBJECT) as being here.
Let appearance and awareness be indivisible (i.e. Union of the three spheres [U3S].).
-- Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
from the book Vajra Speech: A Commentary on The Quintessence of Spiritual
Three essential points ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Mindfulness should guide all your actions and your spiritual endeavors. Whatever you do, always apply three essential points: undertake the action with the intention of doing so for the good of all beings; execute it with perfect concentration, free of attachment to concepts of subject, object, and action; and, finally, dedicate the merit you have created to the enlightenment of all beings.
-- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Meditation is not a means to develop something or to arrive in some other place (or to reject / nagate / abandon / eliminate everything for mere-emptiness).
It is the way we rest in the 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 of ungraspable 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀 and the ceaseless display of ever shifting 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀.
