Teachings

Your self-investigation won't change you from a seeker into a finder. It will lead you to the discovery that this seeker that you think you are, is merely a series of thoughts. So, for a seeker, it is impossible to discover anything, because a series of thoughts cannot see or discover anything. Thoughts appear in what you really are, and as such they are objects in consciousness. Thoughts can be seen, but cannot see for themselves. What you really are can see for itself, but cannot be seen. You can only BE it, never see it as you could see any object. And yet, any object is a reflection of your true nature.

~Jan Koehoorn
