The Mechanisms of the Unreal World
Manfred: Dear Ram, it is clear that lack of discrimination between the eternal and ephemeral is what I am lacking. Still, is it not that at the dualistic level also discrimination between integrity and non-integrity is necessary? Or is it that the first dismisses the second, that when one has clarity about one's true nature he does not bother anymore with this concepts of integrity or not?
My question from the previous email about how to discriminate was more from the dualistic point of view of truth versus falsehood. Should I not bother with these things because they are not real in the first place, and focus on what is real? Or is it necessary to understand also the mechanisms of the unreal world?
I wish you a Merry Christmas!
Ram: Hi, Manfred. Now you are starting to think clearly. If you are going for moksa then you should discriminate what is changing from what is not. So you discriminate the worldly stuff away as “not-self” and keep your mind on awareness.
What does it matter what fools do in maya? Some are honest, some dishonest. They are all Isvara. You need to develop samadhana, focus of the attention on the self.
~ Much love, Ram
