Ramesh Balsekar; 'Het leven gebeurt niet DANKZIJ ons, maar ONDANKS ons'
'I AM' has become 'This is Awareness' *** 'His mind makes the human being dualistic'
ADVAITA The Living Teaching is nothing more than a collection of pointers aimed at identifying the False Sense of Authorship - that sense all human beings get at around two years old that they are separate, independent and powerful entities. The Living Teaching also encourages a deep inquiry into this sense to determine if it is actually true. The reason for this focus is that the sense that I am separate, independant and powerful (the FSA) is connected to all suffering in life. We feel guilty because we have the sense that we could have and should have acted differently. We hate others because we have the sense that they could have and should have acted better towards us, or that they deliberately chose to harm us. Opening to the possibility that there is another way to look at things in a great blessing indeed! The benefits of such openness are not esoteric, or abstract. Seeing the Truth of What Is in this moment relieves us of the bondage of the FSA, allowing us to walk the earth peacefully regardless of circumstances.
