If one googles Vedanta they will find nearly most of the web sites devoted to impersonalism (monism) ....and impersonalism is characterized by the teaching that Brahman is the Supreme and that everthing is ONE..that there is no difference between God and the living entity, but this is incorrect and does not ...[text shortened]... Vedanta Sutra by Vyasadeva" who is the literary incarnation of God and who compiled the Vedas.
I googled. Many lines of refuting arguments. Lots of certitude.
Not me really. I do not trust certitude these days. So we must agree to differ.
I have chosen the path of mystery, and I understand that to be a primary aspect of the nature of the Great.
Neither personal nor impersonal, neither relating nor not relating. It is the Middle Way.
I keep thinking of the awareness the sutra writer needed before he put pen to paper, the awareness inherent before any relating of "God" or man. Such awareness, that does not require an object, is to me pre-eminently the quality of the Source of All.
The qualities of relating, of creating, of loving or of beauty appreciation, of joy, of despair, of hells and heavens, all arise in an awareness that is required prior.
These are truly experienced in awareness, yet that Awareness is One, not two to me. And there is yet relating, creating, dying, etc.etc. Astounding really. Quite mysterious.
You are certain, and so too does certainty arise - in Awareness.
