Discard all stories

There isn’t a ‘you’ who is SEEING, there is only SEEING.
Perhaps the thought: “I see” arises.
This is an extraordinarily subtle story.
The mind takes credit for SEEING/KNOWING.
Discard the thought “I see” and what’s left?
Discard the concept SEEING/KNOWING.
What’s left?

Perhaps in that open space of KNOWING a thought will arise:
“Is this it?”
Discard it.

Didn’t the thought appear on THAT?
SEEING/KNOWING cannot be grasped by the mind because thoughts appear on THAT.
The description that thoughts appear “on” THAT is still duality, which implies that thoughts can appear some place other than THAT. Can a thought exist without it being known? The thought and SEEING/KNOWING, seemingly two are ONE.

There isn’t an answer…
(do not stop there and cling to the story of “no answer”)

In response to the reader who left the anonymous post “So then what?”
Just THIS – without an explanation; that’s about as close as words can point but even that’s false. All concepts are immediately duality and therefore, false.

Extremely subtle and so easily overlooked- so simple and very ordinary…

There seems to be some that are searching for an explosion of permanent bliss or supernatural powers as a confirmation. This is another story. Clinging to the idea of achieving a ‘stateless’ state is another trap. Abandon the search because there isn’t a goal to be reached. You ARE already THAT.
