I have made another attempt to explain the truth in simple English in Plain Truths blog. Some of the readers suggested me to provide some scriptural statements supporting these posts. So, I have written Yoga Vedanta blog that gives references to the words of Lord.

I am currently studying Yoga VaasishTa and make few posts to the blog on wordpress.

Relitive and Absolute Truth - Enquiry

Pleasure and Pain, Good and Bad etc. all are relative. They are not absolute. These fundamental duals are seen as absolute duality through the senses. Senses and Mind start to believe in these duality and always seek pleasure, good to own self (ego, or selfishness) at any cost of pain or bad to some other self (other ego and other selfishness)

There by creating the fundamental bondage -> this further strengthen all the bondages and makes the mind a slave of ego. Mind slowly puts on all these fears - Fear of physical, psychological, spirutual insecurity. Insecurity drives the material motivation to get more and more -> increasing the desire -> fulfilled desire will lead to more bigger desire and posessiveness and non fulfulled desire leads to anger and madness -> finally pushing the soul (the true self) to fail its original objectives and move backwards.

The only way to get out of this cycle of duality is to free up the mind and enquire for truth. Once the enquiry process starts, one should break all the beliefs and do the enquiry by self introspection.
