The seeking mind which gains the self knowledge becomes completely indifferent to experience of duality and gains the sense of equanimity. And is free from illusory cycle of birth,life and death or experience of duality, which it was experiencing it as reality.

Agrees with "A", Disagrees with "B"

A) The mind, upon recognizing or finding "I", is indifferent [commonly called loving unconditionally] to all experiences and gains equanimity.

B) The cycles of birth, life and death or experience of duality, is not an illusion but is as real as the "I". Every experience of "I" IS WHAT IT IS, a teaching experience to the "I". How is it possible for "I" to encounter a learning experience only to find it an illusion?

The marriage is an illusion because of associated effects making distance observations appear to be something other than what it is. As soon as one is within the range which caused the appearance of the illusion the illusion moves to another location, thus, an illusion. Had what appeared in the distance been there when the observer arrived there, they experienced it is and not an illusion.

If I have caused you to question your beliefs I have accomplished my mission. Now, reason the differences in our concepts and reason that until you have reasoned all pros and cons concerning your new revelation.

FORMLESS SPRITUALITY[F.S]

Santthosh
Love compassion all are good for the well being of society. the religion is the tool to condition the mind into man and teaches him to be,to behave, to believe, to live according to its code of conduct with fear of its conceptual god. Religion is very much necessary to judge one's human conduct to live with harmony with in the society.

But human conducts are not the tool to unfold the mystery of the mind or duality.kingdom of heaven is beyond duality or mind where the lord's[TRUTH] name cannot be taken in vein [as physically].

you are doing a great service to human kind by spreading the massage of love. Spiritual pursuit is the personal journey and religion and human conducts are not the means to realize the self.

THUS ONE NEED NOT INDULGE IN CONDEMNING RELIGION AND ITS IDEA OF GOD OR GURU. BUT WHOEVER IS IN THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH MUST UNDERSTAND HOW RELIGION AND YOGA ARE OBSTACLE IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH FOR THEIR OWN INFORMATION, NOT FOR ABUSING.

I ADMIRE AND APRICAIATE YOUR SPREADING LOVE ADVENTURE AND WISH YOU ALL THE BEST.

WITH RESPECT AND REGARDS.
SANTTHOSH.

Based on my experience

Based on my experience and the experience of others, the mere intellectual inquiry does not yield much. I can be convinced in this non-duality but still this intellectual conviction does not yield results.

It was discussed here in http://www.gurusfeet.com/blog/three-levels-understanding-part-1

Even if something is "true" or "positive" or "right", I find the approach of trying "to be there" and experience this "right" view by force just redundant and harmful, it just creates conflict and brings the true belief of the individual to subconcious.

The mind cannot experience non-duality. The subject-object relationship is in the core of its functioning so all this non-duality preaching sounds to me as a vain positive-thinking religious-like stuff that can only cause conflicts to naive people who try to "experience" it.

I find it better to not resist the dual reality even if it is an illusion (god created this illusion for some reason). And if I have the grace from beyond then maybe I will be realized and "see" this non-duality.

Santthos - have you experienced non-duality? not the reasoning and the opinions, I mean experienced it as you experience the duality when you write blogs and eat lunch? This is the main question!
