Sometimes, knowing ‘how’ is the worst thing
because it goes straight to the mind’s bank account.
Mind appears to want to know how to find the Self
so it can remember how to ‘get there’ next time.
But it’s a cunning illusionist who distracts you
from the Self and then appears to want to guide you
to find the very Self it has distracted you from.
Actually, it is leading you deeper and deeper into
the forest of delusion, for it is a deceitful guide.
The one who knows himSelf is not deceived
by any of this, but abides effortlessly
in his own timeless perfection.
