Some imagine that self-realisation is the highest state
within the realm of perception, but this is not so.
The authentic ones have transcended
the captivating illusions of duality
by recognising that they are themselves
unchanging Awareness, which is beyond all states.
Having overcome the myriad distractions
and temptations of the world,
they confirm with authority
personal identity to be mere illusion.
Thus they rise above the play,
consequence and concept of cause and effect.
Such beings are themselves
the living embodiment of Truth.
