Student: Lately I've been so busy, it's as if not even being able to be myself.
Teacher: What you are is happening in times of busyness, and in times of not being busy.
Student: Is it happening even when I'm not aware of that it's happening?
Teacher: It's happening with or without awareness. You as the One is happening along everything else, everybody else, among all that is presenting itself in this moment.
Student: You mean, all is one? But this to be experienced, that's what I'm not quite sure of.
Teacher: There's only the One or whatever you may call it.
Student: But then there's no separation. I mean if it's all one how can there be two? But still, to get the feeling for it, it's seems quite difficult.
Teacher: You may get a feeling for it if you experimentally explore what is happening in this moment.
In this instant everything is the One, all of it. All of your experiences, all of your senses, sight, smell, sound, taste, touch. The feelings you're having right now. The thoughts that are running through your mind and the gaps of no thinking. The awareness of all that is, and the aspect of not being aware at all. The chair you sit on, the typing of these words, your breathing. Everything you could ever imagine, that is consciously or unconsciously happening in this moment, is the One.
Student: That's overwhelming.
Teacher: The feeling of being overwhelmed is the One. Everything is included. And nothing is included. It's full and empty, simultaneously. It knows no two. It only knows itself as the One. You're the One, the substance of all there is. You can't find it, and you can't lose it.
Student: It can't be conceptualized in any way?
Teacher: Just let it find you as what you already are. It will find itself if it's allowed to be.
