The breath, the body, the name, all the forms and shapes the universe, “it’s all the same like branches of a tree just as one goes deeper and deeper one becomes aware of the fact that, the self is not physical but self is consciousness. And diversity is mere mirage. The one who realizes the consciousness is the true self, he shall be free from experiencing the mirage as reality.
One has lost himself in the game of form, time and space. When one is able to lift the veil of form, time and space mentally then the truth will shine as nondual existence.
Self-knowledge is nothing but just dissolution of the mind into consciousness. One has to go beyond, emotions, sensations and thoughts and feelings and through perfect understand it can be acquired.
One should not get stuck with accumulated knowledge but to flow towards nondual reality, which is the ultimate truth. Nondual Silence which is not loneliness, but it is the source from where the mind rises and subsides.
Inquiry, analysis and reasoning is the path, process as well as the goal. So the inner journey reaches towards the nondual destination to become one with the “WHOLE”
Self is not ‘you’ but the self is that witnesses ‘you and the world’ together without the physical apparatus. You are the false self(ego or waking entity) within the false experience(waking) bound by birth, life and death and form, time and space whereas the ‘Self ‘ is birthless and deathless because it is formless. Thus self is not limited to waking state alone because it pervades in everything and everywhere in all the three states. Thus limiting the ‘self’ to waking entity alone is cause of the ignorance.
The dream entity (you) and the dream world becomes falsehood when waking takes place. Similarly the waking entity (you) and the waking world become falsehood when wisdom dawns. Wisdom dawns when waking entity (you) realizes it itself is not the self but the self is that which witnesses the coming and going of the three states. The witness and the three states are one in essence. That essence is consciousness (Atman).
Thus consciousness is ultimate truth or Brahman. Atman is second to none.
Thus one has to know ‘What is mind? ‘What is the substance of the mind?’ and ‘What is the source of the mind?’ in order to realize the non-dualistic or Advaitic truth.
