Reality 104

Self-Knowledge [further continued]:

The direct path of Knowledge is that in which one discriminates, one renounces the actions of the Body & Mind.  He frees himself from the ideas of being a Performer, Experiencer, Thinker, etc.  He abides free of outer sensing & inner conceiving activities, & thus knows the Self to be that. The practice of the Teaching of "Thou Art That" is the Self-Inquiry: "Who am I ?" 

When the Knowledge of the Self which is the Absolute, is not can rejected by the false notions that one lacks Bliss & has desires, that one is not consciousness & is an "activity", and that one is not Existence, but instead is a bound entity, then Knowledge is firm. 

The body is not the Self, the Self is not the Performer of action. Action is unrelated to Self-Knowledge & in no way can bring about the Liberation that this Knowledge alone yields.  Yet the holy Sage who knows this will always be manifesting what is true good & beautiful anyway. With love for all beings, knowing all to be himself, endowed with equanimity & imperturbable peace, with no self-interest, he is ever engaged in the highest good, whether he appears active or still.  His honesty derives from the Truth itself, his Love from the Indivisible Nature of Existence, his Peace from the immovable absolute, & his kindness & care from the perfect Fullness.  For one who knows about Liberation in the Non-Dual Teaching of Identity with the Absolute Self, how would it be possible  to engage in conduct that would be otherwise ?

Nonetheless, it is never possible to determine the State of a realized Sage from the outer appearances of the Body with which he has no identity whatsoever.  The Sage has gone beyond the illusions of life and death, never to return to that which never really was.  The Sage is serene in & as the Absolute, & abides as the Eternal.  Whatever is done, he does nothing.  Whatever is said he remains silent.  Whatever is thought, he remains unmodified.  The Sage has known himself, & he himself is what he knows.

You are that.  Realize the Truth of this by Self-Inquiry.  Supreme Knowledge, Consciousness is Brahman.  Attain Liberation by Knowledge to realize that True Knowledge is the Eternal, Supreme Consciousness itself.  This Self is Brahman. Self With Self-Inquiry: "Who am I ?" & realize pure Existence as 1withouta2nd.  

I am Brahman.  Abide in the Natural State of the Real Self, in the State of Identity with no other "I".  Abide as that, which when known, leaves no other thing to be known. Abide as that, the Happiness of which leaves no thing else to be desired.  Abide as That, which when realized, leaves no other Reality but itself.  Abide as That which is the Self, & which alone exists eternally, for it is That which alone is.

 for very succinct summary of the teaching & practice, see:

[A brief note of explanation the other Blog noted below is entitled "Non-Duality & Science", & so the more Science oriented pages (from what I like to think of as a "comic book") have been posted there, while other chapters have been posted here. Science is a mental discipline that attracts some worthy admirers & participators.  Some of these, too few, are good prospects for the ancient teaching introduced here in many ways.  Otherwise certain Science topics like the Anthropic Principle, reinforce the general Theism which is a good idea in this materialistic age. A few other topics in Science, such as the Copenhagen II Max Born Von Neumann Wigner model of Quantum Mechanics, are worthy entries to the extent that they introduce Consciousness into the physical Sciences. All that aside, the real topic here is the pinnacle as Advaita Vedanta, Non-Duality that pinnacle being Ajata Vada, NoCreation. The great Teachers of the same include Sri Shankara & Sri Ramana Maharshi.  Both would support Theism in general & adaptations of Vedanta, such as Vishishtadvaita Vedanta Qualified Non-Duality, for those not making headway in Ajata Vada, their present course of growth might be better served with a temporary involvement in Qualified Non-Duality. The scientist who perhaps best expresses the influence of Qualified Non-Duality in Science, for instance, would be the quintessential "NewAge" Quantum Physicist, Amit Goswami. And so to that source, & the Quantum Activism he currently advocates [with a 1course  degree program], along with more than a half-dozen good books & former participation in the controversial What the Bleep movie, to him I extend enthusiastic endorsement, for that Qualified Non-Duality described in the context of Science.  I do not stand so much "with him", as much as nearby saluting his good work. Again, as here, the goal is inserting Consciousness into Science & "saving the World."]
