[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
We cannot “think” of that Undivided, Absolute One Existence. We cannot stand apart from It to think about It. When we think about something – we think about some “thing”. There is an objective portion of our thought. But how could there be an objectless thought ? The object need not be gross [physical]. It can be a subtle [mental, prana–“astral”] object, such as an abstract idea, but there is always an objective portion of the thought, without which, the thought is not a thought at all.
To set the experience of Happiness free of limitation, the experiencer himself must be free of limitation, that is, free of misidentification with Form. Then, one remains in infinite, unending, intense Bliss, which is so intense that even the memory of suffering & sorrow is erased. All the superimposed forms are of a sensory or mental character. The experience of Happiness is not a sensation like as seeing or hearing. Happiness is not a thought or a collection of thoughts. Happiness is of a formless nature, shining at the same depth from which the Desire for Happiness springs, at the very source of Happiness itself. The Source of the Desire & the Source of the experience of Happiness are one & the same. That Source is within. Unrealized, the Source manifests as the Desire for Happiness. Realized, the Source shines as Bliss itself. Realization means Knowledge. Knowledge is direct experience of the Self. Such is remaining at & as the very source of Happiness.
