REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 179

REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 179

[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.]

Self-Inquiry is a finding out what is true about one’s actual Existence of Non-Duality.  That which causes one to suffer, namely the false notions in his own Mind, are regarded as un-natural, not inherent in oneself, but something one falsely attributes to himself.  One who suffers is one who believes these notions to be true.  What remains when these are no more is what is Natural, & what is Natural is something actually present all the time.  Self-Inquiry is NOT a precise means acquired.  Rather it is something intrinsic to oneself, of the very nature of one’s Existence.

[Sri Ramana]

A realized being sees the Self, just like a goldsmith estimating the gold in various jewels. When you identify yourself with the Body, then only the forms & shapes are there. But when you transcend your Body, the other objects disappear along with your Body-consciousness.  Plants, trees, etc. also exist, not at all apart from the Self.  Find it out. You think that you see them. The thought is projected out from your Self.  Find out wherefrom it rises.  Thoughts will cease to rise & the Self alone will remain.
