Who are you without any concepts of who you are?
If you let all concepts about yourself, others, existence, reality, and spirituality, come to rest completely, who are you? This question, if genuinely followed, reveals a non-conceptual space that is prior to all thoughts, feelings, states, sensations, or experiences. In this non-conceptual space all experiences and states come and go and the essence of our natural state is self-evident. For some, one look from this non-conceptual space, and as this non-conceptual space, is enough to settle the whole issue of identity. For others, this is not enough.
For these people it is recommended that they allow all thoughts to come to rest on a frequent basis throughout the day. These moments of being able to rest as awareness become longer and longer until there seems to be a spontaneous natural return to presence/awareness.
This return, however, is not an event in time to which you, as a separate person, are returning. This space is what you are, what you have always been. “Leaving” and “returning” to awareness are realized to be just more experiences coming and going, inseparably, within awareness itself, always eternally present, regardless of whether it is recognized or not.
You are beingness itself, pure presence/awareness, whose true nature encompasses enlightenment and everything else you think you have to work for in the story.
