REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 110
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana’s Teaching.]
For the Absolute Self there is nothing based on an “I”. For the Absolute Self there is no World. This realization should be even while apparently awake. Sri Ramana Maharshi has emphasized that our Self-Inquiry & our knowledge should not consist of suppositions, however apparently conclusive those ideas may be. Our knowledge should consist of the true Knowledge of Reality. The revelation Truth comes by giving up the objective outlook, abandoning the Ego-notion, & knowing one’s Self.
The Self’s Existence is independent of all & is different from all that is objective. The objectified “I” is the Ego. The super–imposed objective portion of the “I”–consciousness should be abandoned, for it is not actually the Self. Negation of what is objective means also Negation of the Ego. What remains is that which is implied in the aphorism, “I am Brahman“, (aham brahmasmi). Only Brahman can be itself, 1–without–a–2nd. That is the only true “I”. Brahman is Unborn, Immortal, Imperishable, ageless, & all-comprehensive.
If it were it true that you realize it later it means that you are not Self-Realized now. Absence of Realization in the present moment may be repeated at any moment in the future, for time is infinite. So such Realization is impermanent. But that is not true. It is wrong to consider Realization to be impermanent. Self-Realization is the true Eternal state which cannot change.
You are already That. Time & Space cannot affect the Self. Time & Space are in you. So also all that you see around you is in you.
