How can we learn about non-duality and realize the teachings in direct experience? There are practices to be done at special times, and methods that apply to all aspects of life.
Most important is meditation practice, to be done daily at a chosen time.
It is also helpful to dedicate some time each day to study and reflection.
Throughout the day we can learn to live consciously, and to remember the ideal, sometimes with the aid of practices such as mantra.
We develop inner freedom, peace, fearlessness and fulfilment, based on a growing discernment between what is transient and what is lasting, between the activity in our minds, and our true Self.
In this way we become inwardly more independent of outer circumstances and more even-minded in relation to changing events, as we associate ourselves and our true well-being with what underlies all equally.
We can learn how to live in the here and now, and to always ‘do our best, and then let go.’ When matured, this skill makes our actions effective, harmonious and ultimately liberating.
To deepen our understanding and awareness of the reality within and around us it is helpful to practice non-duality in these three ways: regular meditation, dedicated study and reflection time, and consciously developing helpful qualities and life-skills.
