The death of the thought based separate self
The only one who can find yourself, is yourself
Seek your true nature in your heart.
Your mind sees the separate self.
Your mind thinks your wave is separate from other waves in the ocean.
Your heart sees the eternal self.
Your heart knows all waves are the ocean.
A self is the wave and the universe is the ocean
enlightenment is nothing to find
enlightenment is stop searching and knowing
No separate person becomes enlightened because there is no separate person to become enlightened.
The thought “I” is taking ownership of something that can’t be owned
It is the thinking mind’s rejection or analysis of what is unfolding right now in this present moment that is creating suffering.
The formed thought based conceptual self dies when the mind drops all its acquired lifetime stories.
The true formless self then emerges as a pure unbiased field of awareness free of any preconceived notion.
This true self is inseparable from the universe it is woven into and therefore is not a self at all.
This is our true nature.
Free of thought.
Our original innocent childlike state.
Your realization is dependent on the acceptance of the “isness” of NOW.
This present moment is all we ever have.
We are presence.
We are NOW.
The mind creates a conceptual you and a conceptual reality creating a separation (Dualism)
The heart unites you and reality into a oneness (Nondualism)
Knowing is false
Not knowing is truth
The illness is in the mind’s search for its own illness
The illness stops when the search stops
When you attach to thought, you are only as good as your next thought
When you detach from thought, you become eternal
“I am” is a transient thought in the mind, not an identity.
