Tripping on Self-Realisation
I am everything
The I am is everything
You are everything
Sundari: You bet.
Seeker: You can now see halfway between being in the dream and half out.
Sundari: For whom? As awareness, the dream of the apparent reality appears in you as you – there is only you – but you know it is not you. As the jiva (person) no longer identified with being a jiva, the dream of duality is seen, understood and even enjoyed for what it is: a mirage.
The all-seeing eye
I am that, that is, I am
Ha, ha, I’m so fucking enlightened
Sundari: It is a joke when you know there is no such thing as enlightenment, because you are and always have been that which makes light possible.
Seeker: I get it, I can’t change things, you use Isvara to bounce you back into the knowledge when it…
Sundari: As the jiva no longer identified with being the jiva, there is no need to change anything, because you know everything is perfect and Isvara controls the apparent reality. You also know that as awareness you are “beyond” Isvara as the Creator even though the jiva remains in the apparent reality.
Seeker: I will never die, I am existence.
Seeker: Okay, I’m sober now, what else do we know about existence?
Sundari: Who is “we”? If you are existence, what else is there to know?
Seeker: Holy shit, what a relief… or… naw, ha, ha… but so are you, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
I like what you do here, you helped me get free. It funny because I realize how free I am. The self, self-ness, whatever, is the nature of reality, you guys do understand this.
Sundari: It is one thing to know about awareness and that you are it. It is another thing to know what that means. You are not free until you are free of the jiva and live as awareness.
Seeker: Okay, cool, help me out, what can we do about anything or does God just handle that shit?
Sundari: The whole point of moksa is to negate the one who believes there is something to do. Isvara, the Creator, God (whatever name you prefer), makes up and runs the field of existence. The jiva, although really awareness, appears as a body-mind and identifies with objects, believing it needs to gain something to be free or happy. The only way to negate the doer is through the application of knowledge, i.e. karma yoga. See the attached satsang.
Seeker: And you’re going to say you have responsibilities too.
Sundari: You have responsibilities if you take yourself to be the doer, or person, with a name, address and a history. You do need to follow the rules of contact that we have on our contact page. Please read them carefully.
Seeker: What it is is that it really doesn’t matter what you do, because there is only reality and that’s you.
Sundari: Yes, there is only awareness – non-dual reality – and that is you.
Seeker: I know I’m going to have to tone down that craziness because that shit don’t fly and I will.
Sundari: I understand what you are saying, but yes, you need to write more clearly. This writing is a jumbled hotchpotch of verbiage.
Seeker: Just give me a while to bask in the glow of realization and I’ll help you get others free when I’m ready…
Sundari: Self-realisation is the biggest high, but it is experiential and will end because it takes place in time. Unless self-knowledge obtains and you “do the work” of cleaning up the jiva stuff (rendering binding vasanas non-binding and negating the doer through self-inquiry with a valid means of knowledge, i.e. Vedanta) the high will most likely pass. Self-knowledge needs to translate into the life of the person to set them free of limitation. Only when you can permanently discriminate you, awareness, from the objects that appear in you and never confuse the two again can it be said that you are free of limitation.
Thanks for the offer, but we don’t need help “to set others free.” We do not see that there are “others.” We teach the self, not others. If Isvara wants you to teach when you are ready, you will. Ambition to “free others” is ego-based.
