Self realization is a bit like the discovery you can make when digging a pit:

“We dig a well and create a huge pit. The space in the pit or well has not been created by us. We have just removed the earth which was filling the space there. The space was there then and is also there now.”

You just realize and become aware of the space once the earth is taken away.

I think the earth in us is the ego / mind.

– quoted bit from Ramana Maharishi
