It is in the very nature of thought to move & to change. Sri Ramana Maharshi has revealed firm Self–abidance or “absorption”. This is the Knowledge that truly recalls one’s Existence as it is. Therefore, again & again, Self-Inquire to determine what your True Nature is, what your Identity is, what your actual Existence is. Dwelling as that Pure Existence, without the super–imposition of any idea & without any Mis–identification, that is the Self–”abidance” referred to.
When Sri Ramana Maharshi says: “remember the Self”, it is a “remembrance” but not a remembrance in the usual sense of “memory”. It is a recalling of a direct Knowledge that you actually always had about your Existence, which you always were. In this way we reclaim the Bliss that was actually never lost. Nothing new is attained, but something that did not actually come to be, that is “lost” – Ignorance. It is almost as if he is saying: “Remember that you exist.”
One Formless Existence appears as if all this Multiplicity. All the Multiplicity is only the one formless Existence imagined as such. To realize the Truth, for the Truth to be Self-revealed, one should abandon Ignorance, Multiplicity, the transitory, & the Illusion of Form, & thus be absorbed (“abide”) as the Formless, which is real, Non-Dual & ever-existent. This “abidance” is Knowledge. The destruction of Illusion means the destruction of Ignorance regarding the Self, or the destruction of Mis–identification. Such is the destruction of suffering & the “death” of death. This is blissful Immortality. It is simply the vanquishing of Ignorance. By the Truth being revealed within, Mis–identifications, or super–impositions, are destroyed. By the destruction of Mis–identifications or super– impositions, Absolute Truth is revealed within.
