Having come so far as to discover
all appearances to be unreal,
the final obstacle is the identity of the seeker.
The seeker says, ‘I just want to be free,
I just want to be who I am.
That is all I want now, nothing else.’
He says, ‘Please remove the last obstacle,’
not knowing it is he himself.
But all of this has only been our dream-talking,
Now, through the Master’s guidance and grace,
one must twist oneself loose from this
conditioned identity as a seeker
by recognising that it too is observable,
and is therefore phenomenal.
The seeker remains dissatisfied and says,
‘You never answer my questions.’
The question and the questioner have been answered
but can the ‘seeker’ accept an answer or response
that reveals its unreality? He says,
‘Wow, but without me, how can I be found?’
And I say, Without ‘you’, how can you be lost?
When this is grasped, one has found
the master key to awakening.
