Nothing Makes Sense Except That I’m Awareness
Inquirer: How weird. I see that all this seeking makes no sense. I’m already awareness and always will be. I just had to give up my objective outlook. I trace thoughts to their root and I, awareness, stand revealed. Plain old ordinary awareness. I went searching country and planets only to find that which is already me. I can’t say I feel great, just ordinary. Suffering is just attachment and thinking you’re a doer. This whole teacher-student thing doesn’t make sense either. In fact nothing makes sense except that I’m awareness.
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
