REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 204
[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]
Self-Knowledge is deeply knowing the real significance of “I”. Self-Knowledge is the determination of one’s actual Identity. Self-Inquiry consists of sifting one’s real Identity from what is not actually one’s Identity. The real Identity is infinite Consciousness. One should distinguish the concept of “I”, or the “I”–notion, from what “I” really is, the True Self.
Neti-neti (not this – not this) is not meditation. Find the source. You must reach the source without fail. The false “I” will disappear & the real “I” will be realized. The former (false “I”) cannot exist apart from the latter (real “I”).
In the same way that you give up any wrong idea – you simply stop believing in it. If this does not happen spontaneously when you hear the Truth from a Teacher, keep telling yourself, “I am not the Mind; I am not the Mind. There is no Mind; there is no Mind.”
