Who realizes the Self? Perception of the world is a product of the mind thought process. This perception obstructs the Self. How can the Self be perceived to be realized if not by the same mind that is obstructing the Self?

There are not two selves. Since our birth we have gathered a lot of knowledge, and our ego became developed. Yet this self brings forth confusion: you and me, good and bad, win and loss. We keep being involved in a dualistic view. We have lost this mind that can take in all, and from there all becomes complicated. That is where we train to not let our mind become unclear, and having this inner space within the world is what realizing satori is. That is the moment when we experience this inner space where we do not need to hold onto anything anymore.
