Nothing for the mind
Conscious mind looses interest
And falls asleep
If you are identified within the mind
Then when it goes to sleep . . . you go to sleep
But, for those of you continuing on
You will notice your Natural State
The boundless, objectless presence
That you are
Self-recognition is important
Because until the Self. . . recognizes Itself
How will you pass beyond
What reference would you use?
What will you be aware of?
How will you stay conscious
When everything you recognize fades into silence?
The identity you are accustomed to
Fades from view
Can you stay awake
When there is no you there?
There is another Self, which is always present
It is what is aware of your mind, your thoughts
Even when you are not
It is what's aware of the you . . . that you imagine yourself to be
This is the You that is calling you
Can you hear yourSelf calling you?
It is calling you Home . . . to Itself
But self-recognition does not
Happen to you
It does not happen to the you
That you think you are
It is the larger You
Becoming aware of Itself
