Right now, what is going on?
"I am reading a blog".
Is this absolutely true? This statement requires many layers of assumption. Are you truly looking at a computer screen? Is there a computer screen outside of you, somewhere "out there"? Is there someone doing the reading? Where did this entire paradigm or template come from?
How did it get lined up this way? That there is "someone" here and a screen "there" - and "I'm reading". Is that actual direct experience?
Take a close look - is it really lined up that way? Is there really someone seeing a screen? Without any spiritual experiences - just in direct immediate experience right here and now, is there actually a ME-SEEING-WORLD?
The assumption MUST pop up - if this immediacy is questioned - the assumption of ME-SEEING-WORLD MUST pop up - but HOW do you know? Are you ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that there is a ME-SEEING-WORLD?
It's absolutely only an assumption. This layout is only assumed. The totality of THIS, right here and now, isn't ME-SEEING anything, is it? This layout or template is purely an assumption. That "screen over there" is not really "over there" or "out there", is it?
Right now, before the spiritual search is all wrapped up nicely, all figured out, before that magical insight or special spiritual experience is revealed - THIS right here and now isn't ME-SEEING-WORLD.
Can you see the assumption? Can it ever be anything BUT an assumption? So what IS, right here and now, before the next spiritual insight?
What IS, is nondual reality. THIS is it. Whatever THIS might be assumed to be, whatever THIS might be conceptualized AS, whatever THIS might be in thought - THIS is Advaita - not-two. Not two "things" - not a ME SEEING a WORLD. There is no ME seeing anything. There is only THIS, and the ME-SEEING comes after - in thought - applied after - applied on top of the immediacy of THIS.
There is an enduring concept that once this is all grasped, that the world will change, that perception or experience will change. The point is that THIS is ALREADY Oneness or Advaita - the filter or template or assumptions or translations ON TOP OF it VEIL THIS.
Instead of seeking special spiritual experiences, which may come but will always pass - take a hard look at THIS, notice that this assumption of ME-SEEING-WORLD MUST come up every single time - it comes up automatically due to it being taken as absolutely true and beyond investigation.
ME-SEEING-WORLD is the platform from which the search is undertaken. When that platform is questioned, it falls away naturally, just like a mirage.
Then the entire spiritual search is known to be only a symptom - an attempt at finding something from within a false paradigm. Once the paradigm itself is seen to be obviously false, who remains to seek? Who will benefit from spirituality?
Reality is One Without A Second - right here and now. There MUST BE an assumption to the contrary going on. Instead of seeking some validating experience - recognize the assumption that THIS is NOT IT.
