One who is willing to forego all beliefs and concepts

and rely solely upon direct experience will see that ALL THAT EXISTS is AWARENESS and no thing else.

A doubt arises

and is cleared. Another arises and that is cleared, making way for yet another; and so it goes on. So there is no possibility of clearing away all doubts.

See to whom the doubts arise. Go to their source and abide in it. Then they cease to arise. That is how doubts are to be cleared.

If you love the sacred and despise the ordinary

you are still bobbing in the ocean of delusion.
