REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 198
[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; & another selection based on Ramana’s disciple Annamalai.Swami]
In practice, Self-Inquiry is the dissolution of belief in false definitions attributed to one’s identity. Such definitions yield the delusion of the self being distinct from the Absolute, of one’s identity being that of a separate Individual or Ego-entity. The relinquishment of these false definitions, or Mis-identifications, is essential in knowing the Self.
Where is the World except in your Mind ? Realize your Self & then all is realized. If you dream & see several men, & then wake up & recall your Dream, do you try to ascertain if the persons of your Dream creation are also awake ?
Don’t chase your shadow thoughts & your shadow Mind with mind-control techniques because these techniques are also shadows. Instead, go back to the Source of the shadow-Mind & stay there. When you abide in that place, you will be happy, & the desire to go chasing after shadow thoughts will no longer be there.
