We often look to the mind to gauge whether we "get" this or not. If there is understanding or clarity, then we decide that we are "there". But often times this "mind" tells us that we don't get it, that we are not quite there, or confused, etc.
But what authority does this so-called mind have anyway? Isn't it just a seeming mass of thoughts and concepts just like every other appearance in the Beingness? Why would we look there for confirmation of anything?
The "mind" is not able to tell you what you are. It may seem like it tries...( so sweet, always trying to help us out, explain things, give us a clue..... ;-) )
But what you are is beyond the mind, beyond thoughts, beyond concepts - ALL concepts. Even the concept "mind." Even the concept "words" "thought" "inquiry" "beyond" "emptiness" "bliss".....What is before all, all, ALL that can be known, spoken, seen or conceived??? What is That? Does the mind have anything to say about it? Or does it get suddenly quiet in the head space?
Nothing can touch YOU.
