Advaita/Nonduality, Not two
Look within, there is no difference between yourself, Self and Guru. You are always Free. There is no teacher, there is no student, there is no teaching.~Papaji, Sri H.W.L. Poonja
Could it be that there is That which is beyond time, which therefore is so permanent that there is no”arrival” and no “departure” for it? We know that every thing in the material, external realm “comes” and “goes”. What is more “real”: that which is impermanent, or That which persists when everything else has come and gone?~Robert Wolfe, Living Nonduality.org (from the book Living Nonduality: Enlightenment Teachings of Self-Realization)
When we are so exhausted from the suffering, of being attached to an outcome and all along knowing that there is a deeper truth, the one desire is liberation. Liberation from the illusion that I am this body/mind; that I have existence separate from “that” which is my true nature. And what is “that”? “That” is what is left after all possible attempts at definition have been exhausted. “That” cannot be comprehended or apprehended by the mind, put into words or defined. We simply awaken to the Truth of Self–right here, right now.
