"The one thing you are looking for, the one thing you truly want, is the one thing that can never, ever appear. That is why so many people I’ve met over the years are so exhausted, burnt out, at the end of their spiritual tether. They are seeking something they cannot find, but continue to seek anyway, in the vain hope that one day ‘it’ will appear… What you seek is what you truly are. Your true Self - the One you want - can never appear to you, it can never be a ‘thing’ for you, an ‘object’ to have and to hold, for there cannot be two of you. One seeker and one sought is already one too many. Break up from this false relationship. Simplify, simplify."
