Nisargadatta Maharaj : - If you seek reality you must set yourself free of all backgrounds, of all cultures, of all patterns of thinking and feeling. Even the idea of being a man or woman, or even human should be discarded.
A multitude of forms and colours are the occurrence of Illusion. Illusion breaks, but the soul, the innermost self is unbreakable, always just as it is.
The entire animate and inanimate creation is all Illusion. The one Supreme God (soul or consciousness) pervades everything inside and out.
Through deeper inquiry into the nature of the mind one can unfold the mystery of the mind. When wisdom dawns, one gets freedom from experiencing the illusory form, time and space as reality. When one realizes the self is neither the waking entity nor the self is dream entity but the self is the formless soul or consciousness, which witnesses the coming and going of the three states in succession, one can attain liberation.
Swami Vivekananda:_ Space, time, causation are all delusions. It is your disease that you think you are bound and will be free. You are the Unchangeable. Talk not. Sit down and let all things melt away... they are but dreams. There is no differentiation, no distinction; it is all superstition. Therefore be silent and know what you are... You are the essence of Bliss.
The Spiritual Law belongs to duality. From the ultimate standpoint the duaity is mere an illusion.
Law of karma holds good only on the base of false physical identity, within the illusory Waking experience. Waking experience is as real as a dream.
When the body is not the ‘self’ than the birth, life and death become a mere illusion. The waking entity is an experience within the waking experience. Thus the waking entity is not the experiencer of the waking experience. Therefore it is necessary to know the formless witness of the waking experience in order to unfold the mystery behind the dual (waking or dream) and non-dual (deep sleep) experiences. From the ultimate standpoint the theories and laws hold no water because all the theories and laws are part and parcel of the duality. The duality is mere an illusion.
Therefore it is necessary to realize the fact that, the 'self' is neither the waking entity nor the 'self' is the dream entity but the 'self' is the formless soul, which witnesses the coming and going of the three states. When the 'self' is not the waking entity then whatever is based on the waking entity is bound to be falsehood because the waking entity is the false self within the false experience.
The so called spiritual laws are mere imagination based on the false self (waking entity or ego). When the mind itself is a myth, it means the whole Waking experience is a myth, because without the mind the waking experience is non-existent. Thus it is necessary to know how the mind is a myth. And on what base the mind or waking experience is a myth? To unfold the mystery of the existence.
There is no body, no ego and no experience of the world in the realm of truth because the body and the world are one in essence. That essence is consciousness.
The one who has the firm conviction that, he is an individual separate from the world and world existed prior to him and he is born in it afterwards is egocentric. And he is unfit to grasp the ultimate truth or Brahman.
The seeker has to trace the source of the mind or universe to realize the fact that, mind and its formless substance and the source are one in essence.
The truth is hidden within the mind which is in the form of the universe and it requires deeper self-search mental excavation, the removal of the ignorance, which is the cause of experiencing the illusion or duality as reality.
Grasping the transparent Truth of the self, which is hidden by illusion or waking or universe, is to be attained through soulcentric reasoning, followed by reflection, meditation and so forth, but not through perverted egocentric arguments
