REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 14
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
The question in Self-Inquiry can be: “For whom is the thought ?” Everything that appears to exist is utterly dependent on this Existence, which is Absolute, but this Absolute Existence is devoid of any such modification as change, Duality, & thought. If something seems to rise, it is based upon some kind of differentiation from that Absolute Existence. This split styles itself as “I”, even without the word, “I”. It is the notion, the mere supposition, that there is an “I”. Whether one has many thoughts or very few thoughts, we need to find his identity. If we find his identity, he ceases to exist as such, & all that remains is the Absolute Existence in which nothing ever happened.
Ignorance is the lack of Discrimination, the lack of Discernment regarding what is real or not teal. But Discernment in Knowledge, or Discrimination is the perception of what is real & actually the Self. Discrimination is essential for the destruction of Ignorance & the inner revelation of Knowledge. The Knowledge itself is transcendent of concepts & thoughts. Discrimination means using Knowledge to Self-Realize that Knowledge.
Self-Inquiry is always the inward, non–objective (trans–subjective) examination of the Subject. Thereby, the Seer & the Seen are known to be only that Pure Existence they & have no different existence whatsoever. Such Realization ultimately rewards the spiritual practitioner with Happiness.
