Question:

Thank you Didi for explaining and bringing all the precious knowledge, the truth, and the reality of who we are and how to end this mind/ego suffering, very very grateful. After practicing listening to the ‘Anhad Naad’, I can recognize the Naad in not-so-busy moments. Today in the afternoon I slept listening to the Naad and after some time I became a little awake and for the first time, ‘I-the-witness consciousness’ witnessed the mass of sensations called the body rise and fall. It was an ‘Ahaa’ moment for me.

 

Answer:

That’s wonderful dear. But don’t stop at the experience merely. The next step for a true Advaitin is to analyze his ‘seeing’ and attain clarity. The path of Advaita is NOT for getting high on ‘experiences’. On this path, experiences are a window for the Gnyana to dawn.

Now dive in further with the following self-inquiry!

Ask yourself the following questions:
– What or Who recognized the mass of sensations, arise and fall?
– Can I turn away from the object [sensation] towards the subject [the observer]?
– Is it possible to see the witness consciousness?
– Is it possible to follow the Witness?
– What happens when the witness is followed?

Experiment and find out dear! This is where your self-inquiry begins. This is not the end. So don’t stop short.

Keep chugging! I am right by your side!
