For Self-Realization, all that is required is the abandonment of the Imagination. If something seems to arise, the simple instruction is to deeply inquire into the nature of the one for whom there is this arising. Self-Inquiry dissipates his apparent (Ego) reality, as dawn dissipates the dark of night. There is no connection at all between thought & Pure Existence. For that Pure Existence, thought does not have any independent existence. Absorption in the core of one’s Self, the Heart, is the Silence in which all questions, all doubts, & all thoughts are dissolved.
Mis–identification seems to condition the experience of the Self. But the inquiry is : “Whose experience ?” Does it condition the Self’s experience of Itself ? Since it does not, it would have to condition someone else’s experience of the Self, & who would that someone else be ? An unreal person entangles himself in an unreal Mind, which projects an unreal World, which then conceives of all kinds of conditioning. For purposes of spiritual instruction, it is said that the Mis–identification conditions the experience of the Self, or conditions the Self. But the Self is actually forever un–conditioned.
