There exists a kingdom that contains nothing impermanent.
The ruler of this kingdom has access to unlimited knowledge, and therefore lives in bliss.
There is a minister who serves the ruler by creating everything the ruler desires, and whose existence relies solely on this duty; without this duty the minister would not exist.
The role of Self.
The role of Self is to discover the kingdom of the ruler, and in doing so one will instantly acquire the entire state.
To discover the kingdom one must see the ruler; yet one cannot see the ruler (who is always in plain sight) unless one conquers the minister who serves the ruler. However, the minister cannot be conquered until one sees the ruler - therein we have the conundrum.
In order to solve this mystery one must accomplish both tasks at the same time. Conquer the minister & see the ruler! At that very moment one will instantly acquire the entire estate.
When one recognizes each piece, success is guaranteed; the puzzle is no longer a puzzle, it is the answer.
You create reality, based on your thoughts alone.
