The death of the seeker.

The so called "Enlightenment" is not about gaining anything, its about losing everything.
When experienced, the whole concept of awakening becomes a big "joke".
Not neccecarily a funny one, but confusing and disorientating because of the fact that we are so familiar with the ego and thoughts, we actually think we ARE our egos.
Its the death of the seeker. The seeker wont gain anything but dissolves.
Its not about finding the answer, Its completely the other way around.
The QUESTION was the illuusion all the time. There are no questions outside ego.

The most striking thing was how sensitive the body emotions become.
I never knew, that joy is actually felt as sparks in the chest area.
You become a witness to this sensitive being that you are in love with.
Unconditionally.

We created the world of time and space, in where we pretend to be separate - asleep from our true nature.
We dont really want to wake up, not just yet, because it would ruin "the game".

Who am i, is the first question, and it is also the last.
Non-duality is not a religious, personal "belief". It HAPPENDS to you.
I find it impossible to talk about non-duality. Its the IS. The space between the words. Its a no-thing.
Once you realize yourself, it becomes a process, whatever you think or do. Even if you stop "spirituality" completely. It becomes a personal revolution.
In a way, its the death of all spirituality. You are no longer separate, loved by separate god as the ego likes to precieve it.
Theres nothing to find. You are it and everything.

The thinker is a thought, and therefore so is the seeker.
Can you take one thought, put it in my hand and say:"this is me"?
Theres nothing there.
Enlightenment is allready the case.

I enjoyed your post, MForrell. And I agree. Except that for many of us, it does not happen spontaneously. The seeker needs to be exhausted by his/her seeking sometimes to find that there was no seeker at all there.

Yes runstrails, i understand. It took another kind of exhaustion and expecially surrendering for me too.
