Action continues without a Doer

It is not possible to fake detachment or pretend to not want a certain result.

When one realizes the Self in the House, beyond all appearances of form and time,
a natural surrender occurs, and the mechanism that creates desire bound destinations is deactivated.

Without an agent of doership, there is no one to worry about the affairs of the world, though participating continues.

The form will continue to act, but it is like a marble that has been set in motion by a child, which continues to roll long after the child forgets about it.

The desire to do or not do anything is absent.

As soon as a thought about the future is identified with, there seems to arise an experiencer of that thought.

A simple thought, like, I have to pick up my son at 2:00 today is not the same as
thoughts like, how do I get people to buy my book? Or when will I be enlightened?

These types of thoughts are projections of an identity that doesn't really exist.

The 'I-thought' generates ideas about itself and about a fantasy life it wants to have but it is no more you than a reflection in a mirror.

To stay as Self is to be in desireless action. As being Self, desire is seen as relative to the body and mind only. As Self is source of body and mind, the desire to do or not do anything, is absent.

Fourth state

Turning one's attention inward reveals the 'fourth state'. The three states common to all are waking, dreaming, and dreamless sleep.

The state that these three alternating states occur in is Reality or Home or Heart or Self.

Being established in this state illiminates comparitive evaluation to another being's life.

One's activities become entireley independent of cognitive evaluation even to the one whose form is acting. Just as there is no particular interest to evaluate a stranger's actions, the interest to evaluate the actions of one's own apparent form ceases.
