The ultimate goal of all spiritual striving

In the Avadhuta Gita it says:
‘The mind is formless like the sky,
yet it wears a million faces.
It appears as images from the past
or as wordly forms, but it is not the supreme Self.’
Then it continues further: ‘I am One. I am all of this,
yet I am undifferentiated, beyond all forms.’
You have to have a certain understanding to be able to say
that I am both manifest, and also the unmanifest
and even beyond any category – I am.
Listen as though you yourself are speaking these words
and then see what happens inside you.
Words like these are pushing you back into a place
from where you cannot divide.
A place earlier than mathematics,
earlier than proportions or size,
a place earlier than change and differences.
What within you comprehends the utterances of this?
The ultimate goal of all spiritual striving is
to come into the full recognition of the timeless Truth
and to merge our own individualized sense of self
into the supreme unity or totality.
