REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 109
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi.]
If the dearness of sleep were just rest for the body, a horizontal position would suffice, and there would be less interest in sleep. A person who is lying in a bed & who cannot sleep, even though the body is in a horizontal position, after some time, may become agitated. He wants her sleep. He wants to get rid of this “I” & this World. Though waking & sleeping are a natural cycle, we should remain in identity with the Absolute Self which is “I”– less, which has no “I” arising.
True Knowledge is not experienced unless the prior ignorant conception is negated, just as the Snake-notion is destroyed to see the Rope. The Self, of the nature of Pure Consciousness, is self-existent & can never be negated. Egoism has its origin in Delusion & has for its object that which is only imagined. Ego’s definitions are only thoughts. The discernment of “neti neti” – “not this, not this” negates the Ego’s very existence, along with its origin, its effects, & its imagined objects.
