Knowing is a thing. It's a something that appears in wholeness. Yet the seeker looks for some kind of knowing, as if what is or freedom, is known. When the sense of separation is not there, the desire to know is also no longer there.
Wanting to know is the desire of the seeker. The seeker can only look in separation. It is a dualistic appearance, an apparent separate reality, and its base setting, is dualism. What conundrum for the seeker. Yes it's hopeless but it is also aliveness.
