REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 108
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi.]
Not in relation to anything is the Unborn, the uncreated Consciousness. Instruction regarding the “Witness” is given only for those who are attempting to transcend the Mind. A person has some sense that there is a state that is the highest good & that is free of the “I” & the World. Falling asleep is dear & agreeable to us . If one misses sleep for some time, he longs for it. The subsidence of the “I” & the World make sleep dear. A state of Dreams full of images of himself & the World is not so appealing. More Dreams like the present state are not so much wanted.
The removal of super–imposition is accomplished by Self-Inquiry. This is the intention of the negation of the Upanishads, “neti neti” – “not this, not this”. Such indicates the negation as one’s attributes, identity, or definition, of what is not truly the Self, not the essential Existence, or pure Consciousness. The removal of super–imposition is the Revelation of the Truth. The Truth or Reality is not to be newly created. Nor did the super–imposition diminish Reality in any way, just as the Snake did not chase the Rope away. But to see the Rope, the Imagination of a Snake must cease. Similarly, to know the Truth of the Self, Ignorance must cease.
