Advaita Vedanta är på ropet på YouTube. Sanning i all ära, men det blir lite "för" sant ibland. Underbar underhållning och utvecklande på alla sätt och vis, men...
Ord kan aldrig beskriva det sanna, det kan alltså aldrig vara helt sant....inte ens DET kan heller vara sant...??
ALL THERE IS IS THIS
And this is what is happening . . . reading these words, hearing sounds, feeling, thinking “so what’s next?” Well, what’s next is also this! Aliveness simply being what is . . . the arising in the falling away, the ending in the beginning, the nothing in the everything.
There is no other. So there is being this even in the seeking of this . . . the searching for peace of mind, fulfilment, happiness or anything else that would resolve this agitation, this longing . . .
And this is all there is, even within the struggle of trying to work it out, collecting meaningful concepts, turning the page yet again for further words and still not hearing what they whisper.
How can space be caught in a net? And what is it that would need to find that which has never been lost? What is trying to escape from being this? Run as fast as you can back to that which you think you can know and do . . . finding your true nature, opening your heart, staying aware, or killing the ego, and this will still be all there is . . . you looking for a place you can call your home.
But being cannot be possessed, taught or even valued . . . it is wonderfully useless, it’s not what you think you want. Being this won’t make you happy or special and neither will it make your life work.
And yet it is the priceless freedom that is beyond measure. Many will come across this message and move back to the fascination of personal endeavour. But for some there can be a resonance, a recognition . . . and suddenly the myth of separation collapses and all there is is the boundless wonder of simply being this.
