Reaching Exhaustion

That which is even before the self
Appears as the self,
Then appears as other-than-self,
Yet all the time, remains the Self.
The Self is always realized.
Wu Hsin merely removes the obstacles.
What is your strategy to undo all of your conditioning?
You must see that anything that
Directs you to a path with
A gradual attainment.
It is no better than chasing after the horizon.
It feeds the belief in becoming;
I must become like this or that.
There are those who refuse to accept this and
Continue on their path until they are exhausted.
At that point of complete exhaustion,
They might possibly be ready.
