WHY SEEK WHAT'S ALWAYS PRESENT?
When you go to sleep, what happens to the person you believe you are? Where does it go? It ceases to be, because the thinking process which contains that idea of 'you' is not currently active. It's almost as if this idea of 'you' dies every night and is resurrected every morning.
Yet, during the night, while this idea is not functioning, if a loud noise were to rise the body from slumber, who or what was present that noticed this? Obviously, it was not an idea that roused the body from sleep. Even so, there had to be something which was aware in order for the noise to be heard. This that notices the noise is also that which notices thoughts which contain the idea of 'you'.
When 'you' sleep, this is still ever present and aware. When 'you' are awake, it is still present and aware. This is what is being sought by those who are seeking their source, the absolute. This is really what we are when no longer caught up by the stories presented by the mind.
There is no need to try to be aware, for it is our very nature to be so. There is no need to seek this, for it is always right here, always aware, always accessible, always present in all experiences. There is no need to seek this, just recognize what is already present, recognize this is what you are.
