HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY
Genuine Freedom … the unbroken Awareness of the ONE SELF You Are requires absolute and ruthless ‘transparency’. Transparency is far beyond what the mind [false self] calls ‘honesty’, which is a constantly changing parade of made up agreements about what is true. The simple question: ‘Who am I’ spoken as part of Self Inquiry ‘is’ this transparency in its perfect expression. It allows ‘nothing’ to slip by its laser-gaze. The fanciful antics of the false self cannot escape this magnifying Presence that exposes everything that suggests there is a separate and personal identity.
This is True Surrender, since it exposes the least hint of special-ness that confers privilege and status to the body-mind-identity ‘as if’ it ‘is’ unique in someway. You must be willing to strip away any and all vestiges of this ‘separate entity’ called ‘me’ in order for the Light of Truth to Shine as the Awareness ‘of’ Truth. There is no ‘clinging’ to anything in the Grand Dream when the transparency of Surrender is present.
