“There is no reaching the Self. If the Self were to be reached, it would mean that the Self is not now and here, but that it should be got anew. What is got afresh, will also be lost. So it will be impermanent. What is not permanent is not worth striving for. So I say, the Self is not reached. You are the Self. You are already That.” RM
This message is not mere semantics. All great Saints and Seers have gifted us the same message. Do not believe it. Take it on faith, trust them and trim your sail in this direction. Understanding is a slow awakening and it naturally takes a little time. Realisation must follow and is hindered only by striving. It is possible. Don’t be discouraged. Doubt is only Mind.
