What is clear seeing? Even if dust is in your eyes,
you can see. You can see that you cannot see clearly.
Imagine a room that is completely dark
—no windows, no light. You go in, close the door
and say, ‘I can’t see! I can’t see!’ But you can see.
You cannot see objects in the expected way,
but you can see darkness.
Always you see. You perceive somehow.
Similarly, we expect to find something when searching
for the Truth, but the Truth is not an object.
It is the subject in front of whom is seen
the illusory object-self searching for the Self it already is.
It is like the lie hides the Truth, but only from the lie,
for Truth cannot be hidden.
