Reality can be indicated, pointed out, hinted by special & sometimes spectacular words:
Eternal in both Past & Future, indeed Timeless.
Infinite, Silent, All-Wisdom.
Resting safe as pure Being, Existence itself, without a trace of Individuality or Objectivity.
Reality ever is itself, knows itself, & when we open to it with sincere effort, the Real realizes itself by reveals itself to itself, which is to say: one’s Self.
Knock, knock !
Do you exist ?
Assuredly, yes !
Do you know that you exist ?
How do you know ? How instantaneous, immediate, deep, & certain is that Self-Knowledge ?
With what instrument is one’s Existence known, [or lack of instrument] ?
Or is this direct Knowledge ?
Penetrate deeply inward to the Source of this Being with the probe: “Who am I ?”
deham naham, koham so’ham Ramana Maharshi
deham the Body; naham is not “I”
koham who am “I” ? ; so-ham I am He / I am That
