You aren’t actually a someone, a person, who is conscious. You are the awake space of awareness itself, within which all the thought up entities in your world appear. Out of all these imagined entities, you have simply made the mistake of thinking that one of them is you. - Enza Vita
Awareness is that which is reading these words right now, whatever that is. You know without a doubt that there is something reading these words right now and awareness is precisely what that is. - Enza Vita

The one who believes himself to be a person needs to try to find that person. This is a solution, an antidote, offered to a ghost that thinks it actually exists. - Enza Vita
Even amazing states of bliss, peace, clarity and spaciousness have nothing to do with awakening as these are just experiences coming and going in the impersonal awareness that you are. - Enza Vita
In enlightenment, the seer and the seen disappear. Or, more accurately, are seen through as illusions. In reality, they were never there, apart from being concept and misunderstanding. - Enza Vita
At the moment of enlightenment, everything is dropped—body, mind, all states, all things—everything. At that moment, there is no separate entity that can become enlightened, because there is no I that can experience it. - Enza Vita
What is constant? Is the mind anything more than a conglomeration of thoughts? Where is the mind apart from thought? If there is no thought, can there be a mind? They cancel each other out, do they not? - Enza Vita
