"Jesus said:-"Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all." (Gospel of Thomas 2)
"The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you, Not in a mansion of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and God is there, Lift a stone and you will find God." (Gospel of Thomas)
The mind eludes measurement; therefore it cannot be studied or analyzed with scientific instruments as science does with other physical things. But the scientific method can be applied to it apart from scientific measurement. The scientist is not aware of the fact that, he is searching within the mind, for the mind, with his mind.
Whatever object he is aware of within the waking experience is the mind itself, everything in the waking or dream is nothing but mind. If there is no mind, then there is no experience. If there is no experience then there is no waking or dream. If there is no waking or dream, then there is nothing but non dual Consciousness, the true self.
No one knows the length and breadth of the mind. One does not know where it begins or ends. One cannot say where it stops. No one has seen their own mind, or others mind. Yet everyone talk of my mind, his mind, as though each mind was tagged and separated.
The mind is not limited; one cannot measure it or allot it to separate individuals; that it is everywhere because the whole waking or dream is nothing but mind.
The reality which shines fully, without waking or dream , not only when the waking or dream is known but also when the waking or dream is not known, is the real form of the soul or true self.
The consciousness is present equally within and without the mind, is the supreme primal reality. Its form is silence and final and un-obstructable state of true knowledge. The seeker has to know that non dual wisdom alone is non-attachment; non-dual wisdom alone is purity; non-dual wisdom is the attainment of ultimate truth or Brahman; non-dual wisdom which is devoid of forgetfulness of the Self the alone is immortality; non-dual wisdom alone is everything.
The “Self” is in the form of awareness. Awareness is another name for the Self. Since “Self “is awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that has to do is to give up being aware of other things other than the “Self”. That is of three states. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains and that is the “Self”.
The “Self “is itself aware of dual and non-dual experiences. There is no duality in reality. Duality is due to the ego and is only relative. Relative knowledge requires a subject and an object, whereas the awareness of the “Self “is absolute and requires no object.
There is no body, no ego and no experience of the world in 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.
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 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.
