In the so-called equation of subject and object, you are definitely the subject. Yet upon investigation, the subject is not a thing at all. Any "thing" is objective - therefore that subject is actually pure and formless, without attributes, without dimension in space or time.
That subject which you ARE has no individuality - the individuality comes as a feeling or sense, an accumulation of thoughts, memories, images and ideas. These are all objective content - that subject-ivity or "I"-ness isn't any of those things at all. This can be verified very easily in direct experience.
That "subject" is actually empty of any content - it is like a void or space - it cannot be seen or located - yet it is undeniably there.
Therefore the idea "ME" is a mixing of that pure subjectivity with objective content. It is not the "ME" or individual which is SEEING. That "ME" is objective content IN the seeing.
The only qualities of that subject or "I"-ness is that it is present - it is HERE - undeniably - and it is knowing or noticing or AWARE. Another word for the "subject" is KNOWING.
Filter out the objective content which is being mixed up with the pure subject-"I". Notice that the thought-"I" is a story of individuality - what that simple word "I" actually references is something which is not at all difficult to realize. In fact it is so intimately known it is overlooked.
The subject-"I" and the totality are in fact not two separate things. It is only when that "I"-ness is taken to be limited that the Universe of separate things is imagined.
Nothing is required to be what you are. Only notice what you are, and what is imagined that you are. The only bondage is this imagined idea that you are limited. That idea is called "ME".
You are the one essence, taking itself to be bound due to misidentification with appearance. Recognize the primacy of this "subjective" presence - there is nothing outside of it. It IS all there is.
