Where concepts of the self have been laid by
is truth revealed exactly as it is.
When every concept has been raised to doubt and question
and been recognized as made on no assumptions
which would stand the light,
then is the truth left free to enter in its sanctuary,
clean and free of guilt.
There is no statement that the world is more afraid to hear than this:
I do not know the thing I am
and therefore do not know what I am doing, where I am,
or how to look upon the world or on myself.
Yet in this learning is salvation born.
And what you are will tell you of Itself.

That innate wisdom is always available to you.  Don’t give up on
your heart’s desires and they won’t ever give up on you.
