The Self, which is the most pure, has no distance. There is no gap except the distance of a concept, the distance of thought. But really, we are That - the Self. Just the belief that we are not the Self brings in the feeling of separation. So the Self is our perfect place. Only there can we leave the world alone, leave ourselves alone. There is perceiving in this place but there is no effort, no intention, no management, no faith or hope. These things have their beginning and their life in the mind, in the identity. Beyond the mind, meaning right here, there is no effort. Where there is no effort, that alone is called natural.
