Philosophies create confusion

The intricate maze of philosophy of different schools of thought claim to clarify and reveal the truth,but in fact they create confusion where no confusion need to exist.

To understand anything there is need to understand what is mind.Why worry about the physical body, ego,world,god,religion,scriptures and yoga when they are unreal on the standpoint of the true self, which is the invisible substance and witness of the mind, which is non dual spirit or Ataman.

From here, philosophy is a form of war, mental war ;-). One 'takes a stance and defends it' intellectually, which is the same thing as physical war, only it happens in the mind instead. Absence of confusion is absence of (attachment to) the mind, not the presence of a belief in a philosophy.

TRUTH is only to be experienced not to be gained from scriptures.
