ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY–pt151
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi.]
On a path of Self-Knowledge, Discrimination signifies the ability to discern what is true and also implies the ability to determine what is false or unreal. By so discerning, or discriminating, one pursues Truth to realize it and destroys the dream of illusion or ignorance. Ignorance creates suffering. What destroys ignorance reveals blissful freedom, or Liberation.
Ignorance is destroyed when one discerns that it is, indeed, ignorance and not the Truth. Ignorance exists and is binding only if one conjures it up and believes it. If, by Discrimination, one discerns its unreality, or false nature, it no longer binds and ceases to exist. In its place is found real Knowledge, which is Knowledge of the Reality itself.
