We all do some avoiding and pursuing -- some don't do it "from morning until night," and many do less and less of it as the years go by. I see enlightenment as involving absence of pursuing a goal and absence of having an agenda or purpose, all of which are limiting. I've seen through and beyond the mirage of subject object split during peak experiences; other than those experiences, I remind myself often that I and object appear separate but are one or are different aspects of oneness. What helps me close the gap is my deep belief that all is one existence of which there are a zillion manifestations each of which is different but not separate. It also helps me to minimize goal-directed living and to eliminate have to's, such as having to practice -- have to's are another mirage, a human created mirage, by which we imprison self.
