Who is Doing the Seeking?
The illusion of the ego dissolves as the prefix “I” is removed from all action. What ego claims as its actions are merely self-existent characteristics whose functions are automatic, determined by local conditions, and without an imaginary “I” to activate them. One does not think, feel, or even exist because of an action or decision by some inner, invisible ‘I’. Thinking and feeling occur unasked. What is searching for higher truth is not a personal ‘I’ but an aspect of consciousness itself that expresses as inspiration, devotion, dedication, and perseverance, all of which are aspects of the spiritual will. Therefore, the source of the search for the Self is the Self itself actualizing the necessary processes by virtue of its own qualities, which are facilitated by Grace.
