Hva eller hvem ...

"The idea that you are separate in any way arises only from your mind. When you seek to find the real nature of mind, you will discover that there is no mind. When you abide in Self, mind is nowhere. Therefore to be concerned about that which is only a thought is totally pointless.

Once the mind accepts the fact that it has no power of its own, but is enabled to function by a higher power called Self, it will yield and dissolve in Self. All that is involved is a subtle movement of attention to exam­ine where in you does the thought "I" originate—then drop that question.

There is no bridge between who you think you are and who you really are. There is no bridge to the Self, because there is no gap be­tween the Self and anything else that can exist. You are the Self. Believing that you are otherwise brings suffering and pain. There is no place to go and nothing to do to make you more of what you already are. How you experience yourself is up to you. To make self-enquiry another spiritual exercise creates another habit of mind. 

It is best to relax, stay quiet and stop engaging with thoughts. All unfolds naturally, revealing the truth by a power that takes care of all arising in consciousness, together with consciousness itself. All things come and go—let them. That within which all things come and go is unaffected. Remove your attention from all that is transient. That which remains never came from anywhere. It cannot be experienced by a second. It is Absolute Self."  forts.
