Part of the talk is written out below the video.
God, or your essential nature is not something. Not content. Not form.
The best description through words is to say “not”. What it is not.
And then you are left with what it is, which cannot be named, but can be known. But cannot be known conceptionally because every concept is again a name and a form.
It can be known, simply, easily in the silent space of stillness. Which is in everyone.
Underneath the mental noise, no matter how heavy and turbulent the mental emotional noise may be. No matter how heavy the egoic sense of self is. In everyone, as their essential nature is the stillness of pure consciousness. Your essential nature, the essence – your essence – not separate from the essence of the Universe.
