REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 25
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
The “I” truly is Pure Existence & not at all the assumed “I”-notion or Ego-entity. It is not quite right when a person says that he focuses on the “I”-thought & sees the “I”-thought. It is unclear what he is actually focusing on or what he is seeing, since an “I”-thought has never actually been born. If we really focus, if we inquire into the nature of the “I”–notion, we discover that there is no “I”–notion, there is no Individual. There is just the “I”-less true “I” which is the real Self. So the only way to “remember” the Self is by firm absorption therein.
All wish to continue to exist forever. This is an intuition of the True Nature of Pure Existence. This desire to exist cannot be fulfilled externally in bodily forms. When the state of Pure Existence is unrealized & Delusion is present, that Pure Existence manifests as desire for anything to last. Realized, the Self itself is the Un–born & the Un–dying, remaining in the state of imperturbable Peace, completely detached & not dependent on anything. The Self is transcendent of the entire Universe for all Time. The desire to endure springs from the deepest inner core & is fulfilled solely by realizing the deepest Reality. That is the eternal Existence of the Self. Immortality is complete Happiness, for the essence of both Immortality & complete Happiness is the same. Such is only that which is unending & complete. The temporary is not complete & suffering is not Eternal.
