What is Source?

travisthetraveler:
I joke about most people who tell you things only according to something else and how they require a reference or source to validate anything. Obviously there is a source, it just doesn’t have a traditional means of referencing it. DNA memory? Organic Frequency? A rose is just as sweet by any name you call it I suppose.

Me:
If you had asked Ramana Maharshi what the source is, he, like me, would have answered “Who is asking?”… Worth pondering on…:)

Source – or shall we call it Emptiness – being non-dual, that is, beyond projection, cannot be inferred by any of our so-called instruments of inquiry. It is beyond any reference, at the same time, it is the reference of everything. You know this already, I think.

Intrinsically, Mind is the outcome of duality and projection, and as such, it is in False Relation to everything. Being biased and insecure – what else?…- it always seeks validation in everything it undertakes: it simply cannot function outside preexisting reference. Consequently, it relentlessly turns Life into a sum of loose aspects put together,,,

As for the rose: release it from its name, and you might find the clue…;)
