NMT (No-Me Teaching) new series 118:
Ribhu Gita (Tamil) Ch 32:
Apart from me, filled with Consciousness,
There is no appearance of the World whatever, which is itself just the consequence of concepts & ideas (sankalpa).
Apart from me filled with Consciousness, there are no Individuals (jivas) or Lord (Isvara) which are consequences of concepts & ideas (sankalpa).
Apart from me filled with Consciousness,
There is never any consequence of concepts & ideas (sankalpa), none at all.
I, filled with Consciousness, am ever blessedness.
Contemplating thus, contemplating thus, become blessedness yourself.
Just as the World & so on, seen in a Dream within me, filled with Consciousness,
Are nothing apart from me, the World & so on, seen within me, during the
Filled with Consciousness, are nothing apart from me. Waking State
I, filled with Consciousness, abide as the One, ever the One.
Established as all the perfectly full, pervasive blessedness,
I, filled with Consciousness, abide as myself.
Contemplating thus, contemplating thus,
Become the blessed state yourself.
[selections based on Master Nome’s Self-Knowledge]
Knowledge reveals the abiding place of Happiness. Those who have recognized the presence of Suffering in Life & are desirous of removing in permanently (intolerant of Suffering) search for an answer Knowledge & do not expect Happiness to be found in any worldly manner, such as in sensory things or in the moods & emotions of a wavering Mind. Those who desire to be free of desire, who are not content with the accidental respites from the Suffering caused by Ignorance, who are in search of spiritual Bliss & Peace, who are desirous of understanding of how it is that Happiness shines forth at times & yearn to have it abide knowingly & permanent, & who understand that the way to accomplish this permanent Abidance in Happiness is by Knowledge & not by any other means should determine with certainty the source of Happiness.
[based on the Maharshi's Teaching]
When we do not get whatever we desire or like, & when we cannot avoid whatever we fear or dislike, we feel unhappy, discontented or miserable. Thus unhappiness or suffering is the inevitable result of desire & fear, or likes & dislikes. Desire & fear, & likes & dislikes, are the inevitable result of identifying a Body as "I". And identifying a Body as "I" results from our lack of clear knowledge of our real nature – our essential Self-conscious being. Therefore if we want to be free of all forms of misery & unhappiness, we must free our self from our ignorance or confused knowledge of what we really are. In order to free our self from this confused knowledge, which makes us feel that we are a Body, we must attain a clear knowledge of our real Self. The only means by which we can attain such clear Self-knowledge is to turn our attention away from our Body, our Mind & all other things, & to focus it keenly upon our own essential Self-Consciousness – our fundamental consciousness of our own being, "I am". Thus the theory that underlies the science & art of Self-knowledge enables us to understand that all we need do in order to experience perfect & unlimited Happiness is to attain true Self-knowledge, & that the only means to attain true Self-knowledge is to practice keen scrutinizing Self-Attention.
