Effort to Find Self - An Absurd Notion

So you want to get to know yourself.

What do you do?

Some close their eyes and try to feel the presence within them.

Others try to see everything as one.

Still others try to see that they don't exist.

Realize that all three and all other variations of practices imply effort.

Do you need effort to know you exist?

Do you need effort to know what you are?

Do you need effort to see what is?

Even if you close your eyes to feel the presence, you are aware that you have closed the eyes to feel the presence. You are Here already whether the eyes are open or closed.

Even if you try to see everything as one, you are aware that there are thoughts about seeing everything as one. You are Here already whether these thoughts are there or not.

Even if you try to see that there is no personal identity, you are aware of the presence looking to see that there is no personal identity. You are Here already whether you find the identity or not.

You are Here prior to all activities. You are Here during all activities. You are Here "after" all activities. You ARE the Screen on which ALL ACTIVITIES TAKE PLACE.

YOU ARE THIS ALREADY, HERE, NOW.
