ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY–pt192
[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.
