We cannot know what we are, we can only Be what we are. To “know” what we are implies two—what we are and what knows this.
Again, to the pointing of St. Francis of Assisi, “What you are looking for is what is looking.”
St. Francis is talking about resting in this very moment with no further interpretation. He could just as easily have said, “What you are looking for is what is touching, smelling, tasting.” To Be is to experience the unchanging, fathomless, Primordial Ground of Being as an expression in every aspect of life.
We are awareness, consciousness, subject without object. We are what remains when all else is dropped. Mooji states clearly, “Being here really is just the invitation to rest as Being. There is nothing you have to do. It is not an invitation to become.”
Nisargadatta Maharaj succinctly said, “Seek nothing, expect nothing, then the Supreme State will come to you.”
What a quandary for the seeker. We cannot find what we seek, we can only Be That. If this is understood, the search is finished.
Yours as Truth, Bec and Steve
