If it is a concept - the awakened, bows and smiles,
If it isn't - there's nothing to smile at,
And no-one to bow.
I am the awareness of being aware that I am universal awareness.
The quality of 'humility' refers to the lack of anyone to possess it.
I cannot say it,
I cannot know it,
I cannot be it,
Because I am it,
And that is all I am.
When Light seeks out Darkness,
The only finding
is understanding that what has been 'found'
..was the absence of that which was seeking.
You? You - whoever you think you are -
you are just an error of perception
a misinterpretation of the facts.
I think that I act;
But all the time I am being dreamed by what-I-am.
Whatever you may be, you are being 'lived.'
You are not
traveling, as you think:
you are being
You are in a train.
bother trying to carry your own baggage
It will come along with you anyhow.
The identified man takes part;
the unidentified man looks on.
All is just seeing;
there is no thing seen.
And there is no see-er
other than the seeing of the seen.
The only possible practice is total absence of practice
AND the absence of non-practice;
Since in total absence of both,
there is no identity any more.
As long as there is thinking as if by an objective appearance -
there is a 'you',
and 'it' thinks 'it' is bound.
As soon as such a thinking-process ceases
there is no 'you' to think that it is bound.
For no 'you' is present when mind is fasting.
In a fasting mind no I-concept arises.
And there is no inferential entity to assume that it is
The ultimate question is "Who am I?'
There could never be an answer
other than a repetition of the word 'Who?' -
for that may supply the no-answer;
Which is awakening to the understanding of
why no answer could be.
Absence of an entity to be enlightened
Or not to be enlightened
Is the double negative,
the double Absence..........
Can we remember.....that what we are looking for,....
is what is looking.
I am the light that falls on ten-thousand specks of dust
so that each may shine.
Destroy the 'ego,' hound it, beat it, snub it, tell it where it gets off?
Great fun, no doubt,
but where is it?
Must you not find it first?
Isn't there a word about catching your goose,
before you cook it?
The great difficulty here, is that there isn't one.
There is nothing to acquire,
but only a hypnosis to be exposed.
