The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).5.



The Realisation of the Absolute :


Chapter-2.The Nature of the World


(b) .The Critique of Duality - 5.


The Absolute does necessarily and obviously cancel the validity of the existence of the fictitious relative and the finite.

The form of the world is not simply less real than the Absolute but a distortion of the characteristic nature of the Absolute.

Progress and downfall in life are not an actual process but an appearance of the states of the one Consciousness.



The form of the process of the world seems to be rigidly determined when looked from the point of view of the corresponding subjective intellects or the individuals in the same grade of reality, but it appears otherwise when we are open to the fact that the perceiving subjects are not made of the same processes of the psychological stuff, that all are not in the same grade of reality, and that cognising subjects are also infinite in number.

The form of the world has no authoritative existence and does not bear the test of reason.
