What is beyond you?
You yourself, that which is hidden within you – that is beyond you. Everything else is within your reach, everything else is easy. No matter how difficult it may appear to be, it is easy; everything else is insignificant. Only the wealth which lies hidden within you appears to be beyond you, and you cannot seem to find a way to get there. You cannot see the path leading to it. You cannot stretch your hands towards it, because hands reach outwards, nor can you open your eyes to it, because eyes open outwards, nor can you lend your ears to it, because ears listen outwards. All the senses reach outwards, and you have to look for it within. The mind goes outward, and the search has to take place within. Only that wealth within is beyond you
Your being is beyond you. This means that you are made up of two parts: one is your outgoing face – your senses – your body, your mind, your ego. The ego is sum total of all of these; it reaches outwards. And beyond this ego lies your actual nature, your soul. So if you have to desire something, then desire only that which is beyond you.

It is beyond you, because when you reach it you have lost yourself.
It is beyond you because in reaching it you will be dissolved. Try to understand this.
Attaining anything in which you do not become dissolved is not going beyond yourself. Attaining anything for which you do not have to drop your ego is not going beyond yourself. Only that which you have to pay for with your ego is beyond you. And the day a man attains to his true self the old self with which he started his journey drops away from him just like the old skin drops away from a snake. The day you attain to yourself, you will be really surprise to discover that the “I” who started the search has disappeared.
Kabir has said, ” Oh my friend, seeking and searching Kabir has been dissolved!” in the search Kabir has disappeared and then the union has happened. Of the one who went on the search, nothing is left and then the union takes place!
Kabir has said a very beautiful thing ” I went out in search to find it. while it was not “I” was. and When it was found I saw the seeker has disappeared.
