The seeker is the seer
There is a rise and fall in the mind’s activity causing fluctuations in consciousness.
By skilful repeated efforts consciousness is transformed, cultured, refined and polished.
It develops freedom from all forms of fluctuations so that undisturbed peace may flow. Sorrows are conquered, the search of the soul ceases, proficiency in meditation occurs.
All convey the same meaning - that the seeker and the sought are one; that the seeker is the seer.
