What stands in the way of self-remembering? Knowing that YOU are prior to the “YOU” that is created in time by thought, the aggregate of historical experiences, begins self-inquiry: who am I?
If YOU do not understand it is because,
using thought, YOU cannot.
A clue is this YOU who wants to do.
To think YOU can understand is to create
a pretend thinker
and be caught hook, line and sinker.
The thought that YOU think YOU can know
will go and when nothing is sought
in that absence of thought, YOU are not.
With this YOU idea forgotten,
cloudy mind moves out of the way
and the sun comes out to play!
