It is the earnestness that liberates and not the theory. Your sincerity will guide you. Devotion to the goal of freedom and perfection will make you abandon all theories and systems and live by wisdom, intelligence and active love. Theories may be good as starting points, but must be abandoned, the sooner – the better. (Today is Sri Muruganar Day).
The enduring attainment is to become established in the Heart, abiding as the pure 'I', unruffled by the fierce gale whipped up by all the various branches of knowledge that are apprehended through the mind and senses, and cause us agitation.
-- Sri Muruganar

The one question

Give up all questions except one: 'Who am I?' After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The 'I am' is certain. The 'I am this' is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality. All these questions arise from your believing yourself to be a person. Go beyond the personal and see. (Today is Sri Kunju Swami Day)
