The thinker and thought are part of the illusion/mirage. The thought will not arise without the form. The form will not arise without the mind. The minds cease to exist without the consciousness, which is in the form of spirit. Therefore, there is a need to know the “Self” is not limited to the physical entity, but it pervades in everything and everywhere in the experience of diversity [waking/dream]. The self [consciousness] remains in its formless nondual true nature which is identified as deep sleep in ignorance or duality. There is neither thinker, nor the thought in reality. The one who bases himself on the thinker and thought or creation and creator will not be able cross the threshold duality. All the three states are created, sustained by the consciousness and finally dissolves itself remains in its formless nondual nature. There is no second thing other than the consciousness. Thus everything else other than the consciousness is illusion. Thus the consciousness alone is real all else is mere mirage.
Thus, the individual experiences, which are happening within the waking experience, are also as good as dream. The one which is aware of the appearance and disappearance of the three states is the consciousness. Thus, the thought arises to the individual. And Individuality is falsehood within the false experience. Thus it is necessary to know the self is not ‘I’ but the formless consciousness in order to grasp the nondual truth.
