Giving up one’s expectations in favor of a willingness to simply accept what is may create a vacuum that could be filled with surprising alternatives.
.
.
For instance, it might be recognized that finding does not come from seeking,
.
.
but that it may be revealed through giving up the search;
.
.
that it is not something to see, but the seeing itself;
.
.
that cherished beliefs might be unmasked as conceptual obstacles,
.
.
and spiritual practices may turn out to be a way of avoiding a direct seeing into the heart of the matter.
.
.
This direct seeing exposes the illusion of a separate seeker who can arrive at’destination enlightenment’ somewhere in the future.
.
.
Consequently, the seeking and the seeker are both annihilated in the realization that he is already home.
