This is a terrible message for the person.
There is Nothing in the topic of Nonduality for the person.
There is not a someone who will get
more happy, more free, more intelligent.
This is NOT what the person wants to hear.
It is a bleak landscape with no control.
An emptiness which is disconcerting.
When through Grace the contraction
of a felt identity falls away,
the center of existence of this person is gone.
The me around which the entire life has been operating
my story, my character, my past, my blah blah
Much like they say in all the texts:
it is the death of the personal self.
At the same time:
You are already That which is aware and sees
the story of the person happening.
Sees everything always happening.
And there is Nothing that needs to be done
to come closer to what you are.
It is the noticing of presence of awareness.
And noticing that this is already in place.
Always has been.
The simplicity of This is something from which
the mind and self turn away.
Can't be this.
Can't be this simple.
And they go on
hand in hand
looking for things to do,
how to come closer
to what is.
Maybe just notice this tendency of the mind?
Notice this happening in what we are?
Awareness sees it All.
