Questioner: What is your "state"?

Questioner: What is your "state"?

No state at all.

No one to have a 'state,' and no state in which that no one abides. Simply nothing. Wanting nothing, having nothing, being nothing this is the freedom of the sage, and it is a freedom from every so-called 'state.' 

Here, which is Nowhere, the spontaneous luminosity shines and shimmers as all experience, perception without ever "being" or "becoming" anything or any thing - it dos not even imply an anyone or any other. The unborn wisdom awareness does not deny appearance, only birth. 

If the whole universe, gross and subtle, were to disappear this instant, it would not change the disposition, or reality, of the sage in the slightest. If there is appearance or if there is nothing - no difference.

 When mind is goes to wisdom, then 'Self' becomes, first transparent, and then simply gone. Mystery looks through body at world - admiring the handiwork of the Beloved. What is that mystery? I have no idea - even while being the nothingness somethingness of it. No one has ever had any idea ... no Buddha, no avadhut, no sage ... they simply abide as nothing no-one nowhere, luminously ignorant without being or non-being. I can assure you this is not something you want. The 'you' wants something glorious, some imagined spiritual greatness. This, is to be nothing and for 'body' to remain without identity as the slave of Love.
