Seeking enlightenment only pushes it further away from attainment. It is in the seeking and the grasping that only entrenches us more firmly in the ego’s hold. Releasing and letting go it the only way, but there is no way to stop the mind from thinking. This is where the ego is centered. Thoughts and ideas are what have created the ego self, but it is not reality, and certainly not self.
Self is the part of you that goes on, though in truth, true self has no beginning and no end. Self is not in the mind, but in the heart, without separation, without time. It is oneness with all things and so there is no duality. To find your true self, become the stillness. Forget all identity the ego has created, for that is a false trapping made by the mind to keep us asleep. Wake up from the dream state into reality.
Reality is never changing. It passes out of time where change happens. It is all one. It is being. It is clarity and truth. Peace and harmony abide in reality, because it is the nothing that is everything. It is the moment that begins and ends simultaneously. It is the moment of pause, where reality can be seen. It is a moment of silence, of stillness and quiet that pervades over all things.
This is where we see that there is one god that is everything, making it impossible for god to be separate from us or anything. There is no time and so there is no moment in time. Then the moment we believed to be is gone, just as the heaven and hell, the good and the bad. All these things become complete and are one. They are without division, no separation or duality. There is only the one and it encompasses all.
