Pow! Right Between the Eyes

Nisargadatta dishes out the facts about reality:

We dream that we are awake, we dream that we are asleep. The three states are only varieties of the dream state. Treating everything as a dream liberates. As long as you give reality to dreams, you are their slave. By imaging that you are born as so and so, you become a slave to the so-and-so. The essence of slavery is to imagine yourself to be a process, to have past and future, to have history.

    Beautiful. And funny how the story seems to play out, a slave to this circumstance, a prisoner of that condition…with an apparent process of becoming…yet none of it needs to be important at all.

    Yes, it is beautiful. Nisargadatta presents these ideas in a really digestible way.
