Consciousness is not only is within the mind but it is without the mind. Consciousness is the power of all powers.
Everything is consciousness. In the final sense there is second thing at all. Yet, at the moment on e find him-self in the seemingly manifold condition that is necessary for his evolution in understanding and ultimate freedom.
By mistaking the self to be physical, on e is mistaking the nature of consciousness as well. Consciousness is “the power of all powers, but thinking the physical body to be the self, one has created unconsciously the physical prison out of consciousness. When one becomes aware of the fact that, the whole physical prison created out of consciousness, the ignorance vanishes the consciousness alone prevails as eternal existence.
When the self is not the form but it is formless, then how can one accept himself to be the servants or slaves of any god men or conceptual God? If one accepts the idea of god or god men to be the god, then he is accepting the self to be physical. By accepting the self as physical he is accepting the illusion as reality. By accepting the illusion as reality one is accepting the illusory birth, life, death and the world as reality.
All the god oriented theories are based on the false physical self (ego or waking entity). Holding the god as the base of existence becomes a greatest obstacle in pursuit of truth.
