Q. Hey Tom. I had one question to ask, if you don’t mind. Is Mukti (liberation) even there? Is there something called Liberation? If it’s there here and now, why don’t I feel it? And when it should be the most obvious thing, that is my own existence, why don’t I experience it, or rather recognize it? And what is the purpose of the world if it exists but doesn’t exist. A complete paradox, isn’t it?
Tom: Liberation just means removal of wrong ideas/what is false. Nothing is gained, mistakes are lost. Make sense?
Q. Yes. I’m on the same page. But if it’s so evident, why am I missing it?
Tom: Who says you are missing it? The mind?
Tom. Why believe the mind? Be still my friend ❤
Q. So belief is the reason for all misery, isn’t it?
Tom: Bondage is an illusion of the mind only. Bondage = suffering.
Q. Be still and know that I’m God. But I know this well, I experience it, sometimes. But when problems arise, I’m carried away with it. How to recollect the Self always?
Q. What is the best way of practicing this? Apart from Self-enquiry?
Tom: See here:
Q. Okay. I will read it. But liberation itself is an idea that I have to let go to completely enjoy bliss, isn’t it?
Tom: Have a read
Q. Thanks. It was a great read.
