Consciousness is shore less non-dual Ocean. Consciousness is beyond form, time and space. Consciousness is beyond instinct, intellect, imagination and inspiration. It is unconscious of its true nature when it is in illusion. Only beyond illusion it is in its true nature.
It is cause of the illusory creation, which it creates, preserves and destroys. As the cause it does not know it is the shore less ocean of truth. Consequently, consciousness is beyond form, time and space and the illusion is the effect of the cause, which is consciousness but it itself is uncaused. And on the standpoint of the uncaused nothing ever existed, noting exists nothing will exist.
In the state of illusion of birth, life, death and the world, the consciousness is unconscious of its formless non-dual true nature and it fully immersed with illusory physical identity perceiving the illusory world. It is only conscious of limited existence of an individual. Only when the individual inquires to find out truth about his own existence he becomes aware of the fact that, the physical existence (man + world0 is mere mirage created out of consciousness. The form, time and space are mere mirage created out of consciousness.
One has to be true renunciant within though an active householder in the world outside. Non-duality is not even a philosophical dish cooked to suit exclusively the palate of the particular religion. It is spiritual food for the whole humankind. The truth does not depend on individual opinion. The guidance and help is required only to those, who have the intense urge to know the self, which is formless eternal identity [soul]. On the base of the true self [soul], the bliss and ego are mere illusion.
Expanding horizons is possible only in the illusion, which every one of us experiencing it as reality. Since everyone thinks, their accepted truth as reality, because their worldview(three states) is based on the false self (ego or waking entity), and they view and judge on the base of false self.
There is no point in arguing with the religionists and yogis, because, the base of argument is on different pole, it will yield no fruits.
