Where there is no ignorance there is no burden and bondage of duality/illusion. Most of the people cannot understand this because they are egocentric.
People quote the authorities from the scriptures and famous people to prove their point. The formless soul/self, which is free never, becomes bond. No bondage non liberation from the ultimate point of view.
Only by analyzing the mind and its substance helps to get of bondage or illusion. In the nature of the consciousness there is no division as internal and external.
Seeker has to be steady in the pursuit of truth, and then alone it is possible to understand and assimilate the ultimate truth. Those who accepted the illusion as reality will not be able to understand assimilate the ultimate truth.
The disentangling of cause and effect is huge problem in mental thinking. Reason functions only where there is duality.
What is the first thought of the child? The child does not think until it is three years old. It does not think of ‘I’ or me because the ego is not formed yet. When it starts identifying itself with name then the ego is formed.
