REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 192
[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.]
If when you wake up in the morning, or in the afternoon or evening, you have the idea that the World is coming to you, or that now you have come to your Senses, you have indeed come to the Senses, which is a mode of the Mind. You have not entered a World. The World was not waiting for you. The World is only in the Mind. One who knows for certain that the World is only in the Mind cannot be disturbed by anything in this World. So his Peace remains imperishable. Similarly, he cannot be frightened by anything in this World & his Happiness remains fearlessly.
Who was it that slept ? You did not say in your sleep that you slept. You say it now in your Wakeful state. The Ego therefore is the same in Wakefulness, Dream, & Sleep. Find out the underlying Reality behind these States. That is the Reality underlying these. In that State there is Existence alone. There is no you, nor I, nor he; no Present, nor Past, nor Future. That State is beyond Time & Space, beyond expression. It is ever there.
