Refleksion: Selvindsigt

Forskelen mellem Selvindsigt og Bevidsthed/Nærver/Glæde.

“Inquiry consists in retaining the mind in the Self. Meditation consists in thinking that one’s self is…, existence-consciousness-bliss.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi, 1902

Visdom er vedvarende selvindsigt.

“Desirelessness is wisdom. The two are not different; they are the same. Desirelessness is refraining from turning the mind towards any object. Wisdom means the appearance of no object. In other
words, not seeking what is other than the Self is detachment or desirelessness; not leaving the Self is wisdom.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi, 1902

Selvindsigt giver frihed.

“Inquiring into the nature of one’s self that is in bondage, and realising one’s true nature is release.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi, 1902

Forblive bevidst i ens selvindsigt.

“When the mind that is subtle goes out through the brain and the senseorgans, the gross names and forms appear; when it stays in the heart, the names and forms disappear.
Not letting the mind go out, but retaining it in the Heart is what is called “inwardness”. Letting the mind go out of the Heart is known as “externalisation”. Thus, when the mind stays in the Heart, the ‘I’ which is the source of all thoughts will go, and the Self which ever exists will shine. Whatever one does, one should do without the egoity “I”.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi, 1902
