There is no gap between „you“ and Life

With belief in self, in you experiencing life, there is a more or less constant gap between you and life. You are here and life is over there; And in-between gap full of hopes, expectations, fears... But in reality there is no gap. Gap is created by thoughts. It emerges every time belief in thought “you” emerges. Drop the belief and gap disappears; life flows freely without divisions. It is subtle but simple if you are ready to focus and look within. 
There are now more and more people ready for that; popping out of the illusion of separate self.
World seems to be preparing for the restart; For the new phase of life - not any more based on illusion of separate selfs, people lost in imaginary gap of thoughts.
It is a pleasure witnessing people, recently yet entangled in their life stories, as they just wake up out of it. Sometimes very silently and softly; Sometimes it is in the youth ages without following any special spiritual path, while sometimes it is after many years of spiritual practice and life of seeking. For many of them feeling that something is wrong and agony of continuous seeking for fulfillment become unbearable. And they want to get out of it. Don’t know how, but they feel intuitively the end of it must be here, very close. And if they dare to look with honesty it is really so. Just not out there, but here and now, clouded by some un-integrated feelings and beliefs in deficiency of life, life lived by someone called “me”. “Me” having the feeling that something is missing; me feeling the fear that something needs to be protected; But what? Non-existent I; Unexamined assumption that there must be “me” for life to happen.
However in readiness to look honestly in what is here and now, what always been here and now life reveals itself. Sense of aliveness, awareness, just labeled with the thought as “I”.
For some even a little push is enough to start the process which unfolds itself quickly. After the shift, after passing through the gateless gate, it is seen that actually never was any gate to begin with. As there never was real “me”. It was from start just false identification, interpretation, belief. And life didn’t fit very well when perceived through that limiting filter. And filter is removed in the moment of seeing it; what is seen can’t be unseen and life continues to flow as ever; but it feels much more freely.

Here is one particular case how it may look like when the gap is just disappearing (Like a grapefruit falling from the tree...:); 
First steps over the border in the uncharted land. But they inevitably lead further. How many steps there are till the final destination - if there is one - and how the rest of the journey will look like, is unknown. Open to be experienced.
