The highest realization was described by Bhagavan in terms of the Ajata doctrine of Advaita Vedanta: there is only pure Selfhood as a Totality, no creation, no being separate, no seeker, and no enlightenment. His life is testimony to the fact that it is not an unworldly abstraction.
We can only perceive objects and also the subject consists, as far as perceptible, only of objective components. The pure I is not objectifiable, in so far Neti is the giving away of the recognized objects, also those hidden in the subject.
But in order to cross the 'watershed', there must be a complete letting go. Samadhi is non-dual. For this, the intensive collection, which I brought into the discussion at the beginning, is the best option - although we cannot manufacture this. Only 'there'
Spirituality is not about being or wanting to become an ideal human being. If you remember our telephone conversation, I said that every human being is fragmentary within himself and only integration into the Divine can bring peace.
R: Of course is the Self the most intimate consciousness there is, far more than any indirect experience of senses, body, and mind.

Friend: I’m sober now. I have been a heavy drug user most of my life and through self-inquiry and surrender, I’m 3 weeks clean. But I feel like I’m barely touching the depths of what I truly am but I’m in love with remaining in the center of the I - it feels safe.

Friend: Recently I have been thinking a lot about something that you said to me some time ago - that in our spiritual practice, we cannot skip the level of the person. Within the teachings of Bhagavan, I perceive different levels of expression of truth, so to speak.
