REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 7
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
Thought is never a definition for what I am, for what you are, what remains to be called “your Existence” ? What boundary does it have ? What form does it have ? What division does it have, ? It is none & has none of such things. In this space–like, One Existence, where is the place for thought ? Where is the cause of thought ? Examining one’s own nature, know that it is transcendent of thought. Reality is this inconceivable sole Non-Dual Existence. Inconceivable because it cannot be conceived of, thought about, or any known as an object.
Examine your own experience to perceive what it actually is that you refer to as thought. A mere wisp in instantaneous nothingness, inexplicable “mental” experience. We, as Pure Existence, can remain free from the influence of any (apparent) idea, free from the impact of any thought, free from the hold of any concept, desire, or fear.
Unreal is the idea of an existent object, the idea of an existent perceiver, the idea of an “I” since there is subject–object division, perceived or conceptual attributes. Fortunately, the (apparent) idea of the existence of the Supreme Self (though only apparent, yet still a redeeming idea) derives as Grace from that One Existence, even though the One Existence, which is, indeed, the Self, & which is the only true “I” transcends all ideas.
If you do not identify yourself with a thought & remain steady in the certain Knowledge that what is thought cannot possibly be who you are, Liberation reveals itself.
