The simpler the better.

Yes, it is... I am glad you have realised this too!! So glad!!!!! It makes me very happy when people come to know this for themselves!

Interesting, this is what I say, set aside everything that you are, just one thing left keeps you away from that which always is there.

I didn't know English isn't your primary language so you're doing okay.

Aside from Sanskrit (maybe?) there's no language adequate for the task at hand. I think what Ramana Maharshi would have said is along the line of follow that sense of "I" until it too dissolves. That's the best I can describe it.

Yes, but I've learned English from a very young age because I used to play computer games quite a lot.

Yes, I understand, check this: https://www.nonduality.com/beyond.htm and this: https://www.nonduality.com/iam.htm

You're going to enjoy it! Not my website, something I found!

I'd also say unless one has massive amounts of time, immense dedication and a strict regimen with seasoned guidance it's beneficial to stay with the least number of techniques that get the job done.

Broadly speaking I'd say a focused concentration technique, an effortless technique and a technique to cultivate positive qualities. For me that's mindfulness (either breath or sound), do nothing/just sitting and a bit of loving kindness.


I like how you look a things.. particularly this question. Your answer is glass half full. As you can tell, I'm a work in progress. I do see your point.. and it will stick. As of late, during meditation, I'm allowing it to happen. Forcing things to happen pushes whatever you're trying to achieve away. It's been a process.. but one I'm enjoying.
