16.  Brahman alone sports as the individual.  Brahman alone manifests as Hari.  Brahman alone shines as Siva.  Brahman alone is dear to the Self.

17. Brahman alone shines as peace.  There is nothing in the least other than Brahman.
There is no 'I'.  There is no 'this'.  There is no  'other'.  There is nothing beyond the supreme.

18.  There is no 'this', no significance of scriptures, no mimamsa, (a branch of knowledge, no generation; no characteristics, no Vedas etc.,  no thought stuff,
no mind for me.

19. For me there is no 'this', no 'this - this', no resolution of intellect ever, nothing whatsoever, not in the least, truly, truly.

20.  None of 'just one',  no 'this', no inside no outside. There us not an iota of duality,
nor the generated, nor the appearance,

21.   no thinking, no remembrance, no forgetfulness -- not even an atom of these.
No comprehension of time and space, no will, no perception,

22. no knowledge, no body as separate, nothing as my being, knowable, no transmigration.  For me there is no sorrow. For me there is no liberation, no path or no ruination.

23. I am not the Self. I am not the jiva, I am not the centrally established Lord.
I am not the body. I am not the ear, not the skin, nor the deities, presiding over the
senses.

24. All being just Consciousness, all is simply non existent, ever. Being of the form of the undivided, all is always non existent.

Arunachala Siva.

General Discussion / Re: Two Lovers, One Beloved - Margaret Laulor:

In Teresa's example we find that she stressed love of God without the motive of self
interest; one should desire to suffer in imitation of Christ.  To be transformed into the likeness of the divine is one way to purify the will.  Teresa also defined the place of reasoning in this approach to God.

'We should contrive not to use our reasoning power, but be intent upon discovering what  the Lord is working in the soul..., It is best to put a stop to all discursive reasoning, yet not to suspend the understanding nor to cease from all thought.'  (Interior Castle p 87).

Thus all non Advaitic 'differential vision' (bheda drshti) corresponds to the 'erroneous
knowledge' of the second traveler which remains error-ridden till the end and must
inevitably disappoint the seeker.  Its only use is to disillusion him or her so that he or she seeks new pastures he or she seeks new pastures and inevitably gravitates towards the highest knowledge of Advaita Siddhana.   This is not to condemn dvaitic teachings found in every religion because they have their own use inasmuch as they ripen the mind to surrender to the Lord thus promoting chitta suddhi. But eventually it must yield way to the Advaitic vision in the last lap of Jiva Yatra.

It is thus a matter of perspective from different levels, not absolute pronouncements or judgments. The Vedic vision  accommodates a spectrum of divergent perspectives and allows the seekers full freedom to choose that vision which best appeals to their conviction. Even variant is given a honored plane (including atheism) in the grand scheme of evolution and encouraged as a legitimate step in that ladder.

Arunachala Siva.
