Non- bull/non-dual wisdom
What does it mean to shift from an experiencer to an inquirer? What is left when we come to terms that all experiences are impermanent and that we cannot count on its ever changing nature for freedom/lasting happiness? Seekers of liberation require something that is REALliable and always good.
It is quite common to realize your true nature as non-dual-ever-present-awareness through an experience/epiphany, this is very beautiful, but an experience does not last, and it is not a loyal ticket to weather life’s existential storms. We now want to shift the ‘realization’ into actualization. Meaning we want this understanding ”I am awareness” to be rock solid, hard and fast knowledge at all times. For this, a non-personal and proper teaching is required. Vedanta offers you a complete tool kit.
What if you are actually the always present-never changing seer of experience? Would this not then mean that experience relies on you, the knower, yet you remain free from experience?
What if everything you witness is actually an object to you? I am not talking about the ‘you’ that is sitting behind the screen and reading these words. I am talking about the ‘you’ that knows these words as an object, just as it sees the body, thoughts and feelings as an object too.
All things known must stand apart, from you, the “I” who knows. You cannot be a thing you see.
You are the seer of everything you not. Investigate this for a bit. Would this not be the ultimate freedom?
This is not a mystical state, statement or status- just absolutely utterly obvious. Actually, you are so obvious that it is apparently missed. This is not anything new, just simply ol- ordinary-non-dual-only- but-awareness you.
This understanding is called self knowledge, and self knowledge is always good. When this knowledge is firm you can weather any of life’s existential storms. Liberation is not experiential bliss but the bliss of knowledge. Discovering both our oneness with everything and our freedom from everything is liberation.
The spiritual market is mashed-up in all sorts of gobbledygook. A practical, non-personal and complete teaching is required_ Vedanta offers a proven means.
Nondoodle shares an introductory to the science of Self-inquiry. Discriminating between experience and knowledge is also covered.
