The soul, the innermost self is the subject, not an object (three states). All moments, change, difference, conflicts and ego, the false self and experiences are happening within in the object. The subject is apart and unaffected, because it is not an entity or identity within the object. Until one considers the ego as self or the subject, it leads to intellectuality or egocentricity. And one thinks the form is formless and the formless is the form within the object.
When the wisdom dawns one becomes fully aware there is nothing ever existed, noting exists, and nothing is going to exist other than the formless soul or spirit. Therefore, the experience of diversity is a mere mirage, which appears and disappears as mind. Within the mind, the man perceives the world. Nothingness is the nature of the soul, the innermost self.
Nothingness (Soul or consciousness) is the formless substance and witness of the mirage (three states). Realizing the fact that, the soul is the self, and then the mirage (ignorance) vanishes to its unadulterated non-dual nature. The one who is writing and the one who is reading is part of the mirage. The beyond is within the mirage and it is without the mirage.
