How You Go From No-Self to One-Mind?
Answer

After seeing no-self, clearly nothing can be called I.
But they talk of One Mind and realizing One Taste in All.

Now the Problem is that Awareness Watching Awareness turns into
a Santa Claus watches Santa Claus. It(Awareness) not being a thing
is hard to see or examine it to realize it.

So objects, seem self-luminous and their existence implies they
are known. But still seems One Mind is not seen. 
Who AM I doen't result in anything.

Dzogchen pointings of skylike empty cognizant nature seems
just a concept. Same as Advaita pointing of what doesn't come and go.
As there isn't anything that doesn't come and go.

Help please.

Where is the problem and confusion if thoughts aren't being taken as significant and serious? Where's the mind now?

The "one mind" is not an object to be found. And awareness cannot be aware of itself. And "Who am I" is just another thought. None of them is of any concern to this right now. And it's always this right now. Beyond the concept of "this right now". Just This.

I don't have the realization of many here, but I'll just say that non-duality is like pornography - you know it when you see it. You can't intellectualize your way into understanding it. Keep practicing.

If nothing can be called I, then what do you call anything?

(Mind)

But it's one thing to understand this, it's another thing to see this. Hope this helps!
