What is your expectation in coming to know what you are? What form will it take? What sort of experience will it be?
Will it be a light, a bright light shining? Will it be a feeling, a sensation? Will it be a thought? Will it be a vision of God?
If any of these come, they will come to you, to be known by you, appearing to YOU. Still YOU remain undiscovered, still only the subject to these objective experiences.
What we are looking for is the subject, the Self. So by what means can we come to know the subject? Can we turn around and look? If we see it, it's still objective. The Self remains subjective. Maybe we can spin around really quick and get a fleeting glimpse?
We are concerned only with knowing what we are. Yet we are already familiar with it. You are present and aware. Do you not already know this?
That's it. And is that presence which is present and aware something other than what appears? Is that presence of awareness somehow divided from what appears?
Aren't they the same thing? Aren't they actually the very same reality, the same IS-ness, this present "happening"?
Without knowing anything else, it is clear that reality is already whole and you are THAT.
