Self realization – by Francis Bennett

Here is a beautiful essay on Meditation by Francis Bennett.

Lovingly turn your attention toward attention itself, toward basic consciousness before it is conscious of anything in particular. Be aware of that which is aware. Know that which knows. Be present to presence itself.

When this is your temporary, intentional focus it is called ” spiritual practice” or “self inquiry”. When it is spontaneously seen to be the truth as it always has been abiding in the heart, it is self realization.
