REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 31
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
Knowledge is identical with the Existence known, without any notion, assumption, or supposition. If the Ego-“I” assumed, we so not know about Knowledge & Existence. If the Ego-“I” is no longer assumed, we no longer know about a World. We may seem to know about the World from the ideas that correspond to the sensory impressions to our feelings & perspectives about that “World”. Then wet do not know about the Supreme Self.
The “I”-notion, defined as a “thinker”, a “perceiver”, …, etc., is implicit in every thought. Sri Ramana Maharshi has given the instruction to inquire: “For whom is this thought ?” If pursued, that Inquiry dissolves the entire objective portion of thought, without which the thought cannot stand, & all is returned to the True “I”.
One should regard as Real & as one’s true Existence only That which has no beginning or end, which is ever–existent, which is continuous & Un–divided, which is Un–changing, which is transcendent of all that has Form, of all that changes, & of all that is in Time. By this Knowledge, one abides in the Natural State, which is the only true state of the Self. The Self may be said to call unto Itself, as the Sought & the seeker, as the Guru & the disciple, as God & the devotee. It seeks itself as Meditation. The Self reveals Itself as inner experience. It knows & “abides” in itself for Blissful eternity. May this blissful, Immortal Knowledge shine clearly.
