A lady walks into the market and was astonished to see a man carving a fish out of a huge log of wood. She just could not believe her eyes and stops to strike a conversation with him. She asks him if its ok to talk to him and the man says its perfectly fine. So, she asks him,"how is it you are able to carve this fish without even a picture or a model infront of you". The man replies," I am a fisherman and i am only removing that which is not the fish. The fish unveils on its own."
Oh, My!! what a simple pointer yet so powerful !
All that one needs to do is to be aware of who you are and just keep removing that which you are not. Rest reveals by its ownself. You do nothing. Adi Sankara keeps reminding the same process with "Neti, neti".(not this, not this)
