Never was, and never will there be a moment when That is not. What you currently take yourself to be is simply a shadow, simply a collection of thoughts, nothing more. Only That is. You are merely a ripple in the vast ocean of Thusness.
To come to the direct recognition of who and what you are, not intellectually, but experientially is not something that will just happen all because one knows what books and other teachers have to say with regards to the true nature of this universe. If it was only that simple this world would be overflowing with fully enlightened beings.
To realize the truth of who and what you are, you must be willing to enter a space that might be extremely uncomfortable. A space where you are not. To truly awaken you must be willing to let go of every idea, every belief and anything the mind throws your way.
You must keep discarding until That which cannot be discarded is realized.
To those who are willing to embark on a journey to true self-discovery, I welcome you with folded hands.
For too long so many have been running away from this discovery. Now is the time to merge fully with that that has never been apart from you.
Right here. Right now.
This is where the journey starts and ends.
