REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 101
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi.]
Silence can be of help, but such are not the Core or the Essence. The real Silence must be found in that in which the Ego-“I”-notion does not appear. Better than quieting the Mind is the dissolution of the Mind. It is fine to do things that tend to support our spiritual practice of turning our Mind inward. There is no point in our Mind immersing itself in worldly topics & making as much noise as possible. So doing those things that we find supportive of our spiritual practice means wisely governing, or directing the use of our Senses, our Speech, our thinking, & such. But the essential key is the Knowledge of our Self, the dissolution of false Identity, & the dissolution of the idea of an existent Mind.
Absolute Reality is Infinite & Eternal & can be realized so that one remains in that Absolute Reality, as it, always. To thus realize is to remain in lasting Peace, complete spiritual Freedom, & perfect Happiness, which is spiritual Bliss. The way to do this is to know oneself, for if one knows oneself as one really is, that itself is indeed the Absolute. What one really is not what one might have mistakenly conceived oneself to be. Regardless of whatever be the spiritual practices in which one may engage, eventually he or she is brought to this: the importance of knowing one’s True Nature as it is. Self-Inquiry, which is characterized by asking within oneself, “Who am I ?”, is the keen Discernment of what one is & the relinquishment of ignorant mis–identifications.
