Thoughts on this conversation
Posted 2/22/15
Just think of this as inner dialog between you unconscious and conscious decide which one's which...

"What is it that you seek?"
"Experience"
"Of what?"
"Of a meaningful relationship"
"Oh, why and with whom?"
"From what I can see... I've never had one, and with whom I don't know."
"What will you gain?"
"What was always here."
"How can you gain that which you've always had?"
"You're right... What I will gain is the acceptance of what I've always had..."
"Are you sure?
"I don't know."
"Does it matter?"
"Who can say?"
"Everyone..."
"Hmm..."
"Keep in mind if you've have always had that which you seek, it can be traced back to the root, so that the unseen can be seen..."
"See the unseen...How?"
"There is no method to the method."

Honestly I wonder how many people would be able to follow that.
Personally though I have had a wide range of odd experiences in my life, and have no qualms about having internal/(external) conversations with myself. From that perspective I would say the initial question is the sub-conscious that holds more knowledge and wisdom that the normal conscious mind is generally aware of as the 2nd party. (edit added for effect)

It seems somewhat reminiscent of the old question "what is the sound of one hand clapping?" A philosophical mental loop.

Also, a minor grammatical point about the 3rd to last line. "you've have" is redundant, and puts a stumble in the reading with the duplication.
