Beyond Thought and Feeling

Anything that can be thought or felt is not It, because It is that which knows the thought or feeling. That which knows is beyond thought or feeling. It can only be the undefinable, ineffable, devoid of any attachment. It is the "I" of all. Pure Awareness.

What is the difference between "not It" and "Ït" ? Thank you !

In the ultimate sense everything is it, a nonduality. However, for us to get a handle on our true nature, a training method used in Advaita is to distinguish between what appears, and the source, or Absolute. Since whatever appears, thoughts, feelings, objects, are temporary, that is not ultimately what we are. Thanks for commenting.
