MOST RECENT

Out of The Void was born The Light. This Light can never know or create another. It is but one Light spawning an infinite and inseparable existence of multiplicity inside of an infinite perfection of singleness. This Light is the world. The world, nothing but this Light. You are both The Void as well as The Light. Few know themselves as the Light, even fewer know themselves as this Void. It takes practice and desire of the deepest, most earnest kind—but it is liberation; everything else but temporary relief.

The #yogasutras have this to say about thoughts ("vrittis"): They are always restless and only useful for surviving in the material realm. Incorrect knowledge & memories of the past are some of the thoughts that torture us the most. Patanjali's solution: 🙏

-VIVEKA-

Nope, it's not a pill, it's the ability to discriminate...this ability can grow strong and thus help discover who I am, what I am not, what's mine and what's not.

First steps...
🙏
We can practice to trust only our perception (for instance: "I see water")
🙏
And practice not to jump to conclusions, not to trust our prejudices, but stay with the facts (for instance:"water is wet")
🙏
This - for a start- will help break the chains of the identification with the mind. *

This "viveka"-principle we can also use as a tool for shedding off the layers of false and painful identifications, thus discover what we always were. I'll share Patanjali's techniques in my next posts❤ Namaste *

You are not a kindergarten student of spirituality, so you must cease to think and speak as if you are a phenomenal object. You are the animating consciousness that provides sentience to the sentient being. But you are this consciousness only in manifestation. In truth you are that which is prior to consciousness itself. You are the pure Awareness. You do not need to be liberated. Liberation is a preposterous idea, for were you an object as you still think you are, then as an object you could never be liberated. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

This message comes right on time while discussing it with someone..being bound/free 😊

Which path is best or true?

For each path there are many deviations. Each of them might claim to be the best or true path. So what will your choice be based upon? How it feels? The charisma of the teacher? What seems to be in line with what you like or believe at this moment in your life?
Each path can have its merits and weaknesses.

Vedanta offers guided steps, yet the gradual proces of Advaita Vedanta can turn into conditioning into truth.

Neo can offer direct realization without study, yet the instant bullet of neo-advaita may require luck and can turn out to be a series of blanks.

One possibility can not be overlooked: without books or teachers, even if you were the only person in the world, still you would be able to come to realisation of Truth by yourself. All you have to do is look, at everything, even at that which is looking.
