Simply Put

by Robert Wolfe on December 24th, 2011

I have spoken about this: one evening, I typed out a page of what was presenting itself to my consciousness, in so many words. When I read it back, it was clear to me that seeking the meaning of the nondual enigma had come to an end: I understood.

I no longer know where to find the page that I typed out. But the significance of this, I would say, is that a moment can arise when the truth which one is seeking is discovered to be within; it is not dependent upon externals. And the awareness that what was sought has been found, is beyond doubt. Also, when that clarity is completely present, it remains so--effortlessly.

What is discovered, in that moment, is: That which is sought is actually inescapable; it is always ever-present, whether we recognize it or not. And, too: as Nisargadatta's book is titled, I am That; the "seeker" and the "sought" cannot, in truth, be separated.

This recognition, two decades ago, is likely the substance of what I typed out, though I must have used dozens of words in the initial attempt to express it.
