Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

D: because we can be very forgetful, and is why all knowledge comes from a source that exists prior to our knowing of it, else we wouldn't know how to function or do anything.

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

''There is no such thing as peace of mind. Mind means disturbance; restlessness itself is mind. Examine closely and you will see that the mind is seething with thoughts. It may occasionally go blank, but it does it for a time and reverts to its usual restlessness. '' . '' Watch your mind, how it com...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

It hinges on the word, “exist.” Which hinges on the question who exists? The I AM itself is Maya, illusion. YOU exist, but not as a thought. . Under these conditions you exist only as thoughts. You exist as the thoughts of others who are creating you from the words formed by your thoughts, and by w...

Look more closely.

Under these conditions, you only exist as thoughts.
?

Under conditions you exist as a thought.

Absent of condition ..existence IS.. but this ISness does not know of any other knower ?

Re: ~ The Brilliant Light of the Spotless Sun Now Shines Upon the New Citizen of the World ~

I cannot talk to you if you are not prepared to listen to what I am saying, I've been giving you the answers, but are you listening?

Both knower and known are the same ONE in the same moment NOW. All concepts are essentially necessary for one to know its...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

“I am talking about the one principle that is untouched by anything in the universe. “It is prior to the appearance of the I am.” With these words, do you think Sri Nisargadatta is referring to thinking, as in, “I think, therefore I am,” as the one principle that is untouched by anything in the uni...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

That’s an amazing response. Rare. However, it’s not my rule. It’s a rule of rationality. Ask around. That things may stray is not cause for things to stray.
