The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).2.




The Realisation of the Absolute :


Chapter-2.The Nature of the World


(b) .The Critique of Duality - 2.


To assert diversity is to deny absoluteness.

It does not, however, mean that the Absolute excludes the diverse finitudes, but the finite is eternally dissolved in or is identical with the Absolute, and therefore, it does not claim for itself an individual reality.

It is argued that to ignore differences is to reduce the Absolute to a non-entity.

The Absolute does not depend upon the reality of egoistic differences.

By cancelling the relative we may not affect the Absolute, but we, so long as we are unconscious of the fundamental Being, improve thereby our present state of consciousness.

Individuality is in every speck of space and these egos must be so very undivided that diversity becomes an impossible conception and homogeneity persists in every form of true reasoning in our effort to come to a conclusion in regard to the nature of the Absolute.

We may blindly assert difference, but it is not possible to establish it through any acceptable reasoning.
