Edge of Mind and Beyond!
When we inquire, we eventually get to the edge of mind's domain. Beyond that is the "I Am", or the unknown. The boundary of mind is where the egoic sense of self can go no further. Inquiry is a useful tool, but it will only take as far as the edge of mind. A lot of us get fascinated by the boundary of mind and get sucked into identifying with the intensity of the energy (positive and negative) at that demarcation zone. Or, we get frightened by our fantasies of what is beyond mind's domain and follow thoughts that take us back into the story of me.
While sitting in silence, stop and let everything be as it is – there is nothing more to do. Just let mind be. Notice that there is no control over mind. Thoughts are just thoughting. Trust yourself and play with the feel of going beyond mind. The irony is that the Truth of who or what we are is already there beyond mind. So, we do not need to work to get to a place where we already are. The I am is present and unaffected by mind doing it's thing.
