For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

And then there was one..

What is to be done? Reality is One only. How can It be realised? Realisation is thus an illusion. Practice seems to be necessary. Who is to practise? Looking for the doer, the act and the accessories disappear.

Moreover, if Realisation is not present here and now, how can It, newly got, be of any use? What is permanent must be eternally present. Can it be newly got and be permanent also?

Realise what is present here and now. The sages did so before and still do that only. Hence they say that it looks as if newly got. Once veiled by ignorance and later revealed, Reality looks as if newly realised.

But it is not new.

Living in the now would eliminate depression and anxiety thinking. And there IS only one.

I agree. Reality is permanent and thus is not new.

Yet personally, to me, practice is needed. Not to gain new Reality, but to unveil the cover of illusion, since all along we are all so conditioned to live the illusion of separateness :)

Disciple :Q: "Bliss manifests occasionally but I am unable to describe it. At times there is illumination, but is it the Reality? If so, how to make it permanent? The method must be simple. Please make it clear without logic, learned discussions or mystifying words."

Maharshi :A: (No answer.)


Perfect answer huh? Not sure if the disciple got it tho.
