What will enlightenment, advaita, non-duality, freedom, liberation, or seeing give you?
There is no gain whatsoever. How can you have more of yourself, if you are everything and nothing?
In the story of me, the "me" thinks it will gain something....like peace or freedom, etc. But if liberation is the seeing that there is no one, then who will benefit? If everything seen, imagined and experienced is YOU, what could be desired?
In the story, anything can happen. More peace, more conflict, less conflict, less peace....it matters not one bit because what you are is already complete, whole and fully THIS. We might say that WHAT IS expresses "isness," freely, in joy and in peace - and what that looks like is "everything." Oneness doesn't "give" anything to anyone, that is not possible.
So, "enlightenment" is not something new, it's simply what you are....and then if there arises the sensation and belief in a separate person with free will, so what? What could that possibly mean to YOU, the unfathomable Beingness that illuminates all? Just because there seems to be someone there, that doesn't mean there is....
And if in the story the "me" seems to drop away, has anything really changed? Are YOU any different than "before?" Sure, the story of "me" will change, that is the nature of appearances, with or without the story of "Liberation."
"But I don't know this," you might say. Oh really? What will knowing this give you that you don't already have? Who needs to know that YOU ARE? Do you want eternal peace-love-freedom-aliveness forever and ever?
Well, you can't have it because you already ARE IT. Now what? Notice how the story of me is never satisfied, the never-ending loop of "I want, I want, I want...." There is nothing wrong with this. In fact, it's beautiful....it just doesn't affect what you are, that's all. Getting what "you" want doesn't change anything about YOU.
Right here and right now, what is desired and what is given?
"Enlightenment will stop my suffering," is another statement we might make. Do you need to "get enlightened" to see right now, here, that you are not suffering? Not at all, right? It's all here, present, alive in every h-e-r-e-n-o-w.... no suffering.
This is it. This is YOU. Pure Grace.
Is that enough? ;-))
