REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 189
[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.]
The existence of the Senses is “in the Mind’s power.” Therefore, it is not really true to say that we have ever experienced a World. All the Objects of the World have just been what we have Seen, Heard, Touched, Smelled, & Tasted. There has never been a conclusive experience of any Sense Object. There has just been the Sensing, & proceeding along the same line of Self-Inquiry, there has never actually been the Sensing, but there has just been the Mind’s Conceiving.
The practice is a constant search for “I”, the source of the Ego. Find out “Who am I ?” The pure “I” is the Reality, the Absolute Existence-Consciousness-Bliss. When That is forgotten, all miseries crop up; when that is held fast, the miseries do not affect the person.
