Excerpt About Self Realization
Self Realization is Ultimately Self AnnihilationWhat we’re seeing here is that self-realization is ultimately self-annihilation. We don’t gain anything. Rather we are going to lose everything. We lose the concepts of our mind, one after another, one category after another, people, objects, values. When all the concepts and categories are gone, only the nonconceptual awareness, which is a field of pure consciousness, remains. This spontaneously dissolves into its underlying ground, absolute nonbeing, total absence of being. This nonbeing, when we recognize it as the ground and inner secret of all of reality, is the night of reality, the inner of the inner. This is the guest.
