Intereststs; Meditation/Spiritual Life

« on: Apr 01, 2019 12:18 am »

Self inquiry appears to be the trapped in its own questioning dialogue. For me-so far-self -inquiry has not been helpful in meditation. It just leads to more thought and thought is a product of mind; the chatter of the mind. Of course I cannot speak for others but only myself. I Wonder how Ramana would respond to my situation and my Response to him....

I Find it is better not to ask any questions but rather practice techniques that help extinguish the thoughts because just behind our thoughts Is bliss. The More I ask about my thoughts; the more I’m inundated with new thoughts.The real self reveals itself for this entity-that I call me-for a Lack of better words-when all questions answers witticisms and criticisms are silenced. So I would call what Ramana calls self inquiry; introspection, Which is also a necessary ingredient in spiritual evolution and enlightenment. I do not claim to have the only technique to enlightenment-nor to say his technique wouldn’t work for someone else-only to express my experience with what Ramana has explained here that I have Found indispensable to spiritual enlightenment or experience of any sort that is introspection. Because without introspection behavioral patterns and habits remain; Many of which are a detriment to spiritual experience.
