The mind can be observed. You can see thoughts appear.
You are aware that there is thought. Thoughts are recieved, but who hears them? Awareness is aware of thoughts appearing, awareness is aware of
Any appearance is not you. You are aware of the appearance. Do not confuse yourself with the appearance. You are what never appears.
The significance of neti neti:
Neti Neti, meaning, "Not this, Not this", is the method of Vedic analysis of negation. It is a keynote of Vedic inquiry. With its aid the Jnani
negates identification with all things of this world which is not the Atman, in this way he negates the Anatman. Through this gradual process he
negating the mind and transcends all worldly experiences that are negated till nothing remains but the Self. He attains union with the Absolute by
denying the body, name, form, intellect, senses and all limiting adjuncts and discovers what remains, the true “I” alone. L.C.Beckett in his book,
Neti Neti, explains that this expression is an expression of something inexpressible, it expresses the ‘suchness’ (the essence) of that which it
refers to when ‘no other definition applies to it’.Neti neti negates all descriptions about the Ultimate Reality but not the Reality itself.
Inuitive interpretation of uncertainty principle can be expressed by "Neti neti" that annihilates ego and the world as non-self (Anatman), it
annihilates our sense of self altogether.
