REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 149
[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.]
It is impossible for Pure Existence to become other than what it is, for oneself to become other than the Self. Thus there is no falling away from one’s nature into Maya (illusion), & there is no becoming the Self anew. Sri Sankara revealed that one cannot become other than what one is, for if one becomes another, one is destroyed. Thus, just as one cannot become other than Brahman, one cannot become Brahman. Knowledge simply reveals the Truth.
Because the Intellect holds you at present, you are in the grip of the Intellect in the Waking State when you discuss matters.
Grace is needed for Self-Realization. Grace is the Self. Grace is not always manifest because of Ignorance prevailing. With sincere study & trust in the Teaching, Grace will become manifest. Trust, Grace, Light, Spirit, are all synonymous with the Self.
