"The very first step in understanding what this is all about is giving up the concept of an active, volitional 'I' as a separate entity and accepting the passive role of perceiving and functioning as a process." - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

All is One

Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj

What is false? Name and form are false. The "Vision of Knowledge" is seeing with "understanding". One who examines everything, is "a man of discernment", a King. He examines everything. He observes all observation. He observes the "observer" who is observing. He also observes the moment of observation. Observation goes to the final border, and one realizes the exact moment, or the origination of observation. The one who realizes is the true "observer", the King (Parikshit). One must examine everything. By examining, you come to know. Where there is no examination, there is ignorance. This ignorance is the thoughtlessness called Avidya. Correct thought is wisdom, or "good Knowledge" (Suvidya). To see, and know "as it is" is to speak Truth. People speak of something else while Reality is quite different, and they become proud, saying that they are speaking Truth. All of the worldly talk is only cunning speech and trickery. 

Only men of "Supreme Knowledge" (vijnana) can speak the Truth. It is very difficult to speak Truth. Only God can digest "truthful" speech. To behave according to what is actually inside, is possible only for God. People speak falsely swearing that they are speaking Truth. All of that is deceptive. Mother, father, children, all, are God, Rama. If you say "dog", it is dog, if you say" God", it is God. The Self is all beings. What is meant by the vision of the "entire universe"? To "One Being" are attached all shapes. All faces, and endless number of faces, and endless hands, and all their activities are vested in "One Being". Arjuna saw this when Lord Krishna revealed His True face. The pride of the body is the demon Narakasura. To kill it is difficult as well as easy. There is no death. Nothing in this world is ever totally destroyed. If it were, where would it go? That which is not, from where does it come? In the great battle of Bhagavad Gita, out of all the Pandavas, only Abhimanyu died. Abhimanyu is pride. However, all of the Kauravas, who were of evil mind and were attached to their bodies were killed. The "Sun of the Guru" (Guruputra) knows that "All is One", without a second.

सर्वभूताधिवासं यद्भूतेषु च वसत्यपि।
सर्वानुग्राहकत्वेन तद्स्म्यहं वासुदेवः॥

That in whom reside all beings and who resides in all beings,
who is the giver of grace to all, the Supreme Soul of the universe, the limitless being:
I AM THAT. -- Amritabindu Upanishad
