The Flies Are Isvara Too
Sarah: Hi, Sundari. When you know who you are there is no more need to discriminate because everything is seen as me. So the flies are Isvara, all jargon leading to the complete realisation that it is all me, awareness, and everything is contained in me as a dream. And when you know…the technicalities, such as the part can never be the whole, are redundant. Is this correct? In other words, it doesn’t much matter if you say the flies are Isvara or Isvara is the flies. There is no separation.
~ Lots of love, Sarah
Sundari: Hello, Sarah. Yes, you have it. When non-dual vision has replaced duality, one sees duality playing out without identifying with it, no discrimination is needed anymore because you are the all-seeing “I,” the screen upon which it is all playing out. Duality can then be enjoyed for what it is, a superimposition onto non-duality. Ignorance and knowledge are just objects known to you and they no longer apply, other than to the jiva who still lives in the apparent reality and has to abide by Isvara’s laws. This is the self-actualisation we emphasize; unless self-knowledge fully translates into the life of the person, you are not free of the person.
Your one statement needs a little work; you are presenting awareness as an object, but possibly just the way you worded it. You said, “…awareness, and everything is contained in me as a dream.” If awareness is who you are, then the dream is contained in you.
Well done to you, you have worked so faithfully on your sadhana. What a joy self-knowledge is!
~ Many blessings and much love, Sundari
