My friend Charlie Hayes like to say:
“The bad news is you will never get this, the good news is you will never get this”
Sounds a bit confusing, doesn’t it? And even in my feeble attempt to explain it results in more the confusion. The mind is incapable of getting this. The you that you think you are is simply a product of the mind. A collection of past and future thoughts occurring right now. Outside of thought, do you even exist?
The mind will try desperately to figure all of this “nobody”, “self-realization”, “enlightenment” stuff out. But it never will. And that is the frustrating part, the bad news. . Ultimately, it will give up, the good news. And in that giving up, that exhausting of the mind, there is only liberation.
