ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY–pt194
[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.]
The Senses, though, do not know of themselves. The Senses are in themselves as inert as the sensed objects. No Sense Object exists apart from the Senses. All is within the Senses. Your Senses are not traveling "out there" to perceive Objects. The Objects are conjured up within the Sensory experience. The sensing experience is conceived in the Mind. Sensing is under the Mind's power. The Mind must be in a certain state in order to create the Senses within it.
Solitude is a function of the Mind. A man attached to Desire cannot get solitude wherever he may be. A detached man is always in solitude.
One might be engaged in work & be free from Desire & keep up solitude. Work performed with Attachment is a shackle, whereas work performed with Detachment does not affect the Doer. He is, even while working, in solitude.
