Whatever have appeared (birth, life, death and world) has appeared on its own and it disappears on its own.

Buddha:No one saves us but ourselves.  No one can and no one may.  We ourselves must walk the path. 
Whatever have appeared (birth, life, death and world) has appeared on its own and it disappears on its own.  Whether a person takes it as reality or illusion it all depends on his mental and intellectual conditions will determine the phenomenal world observed and experienced. The look of an object will depend upon the medium through which the observer views it. A Gnani viewing the universe (practical life within the practical world) different from the ignorant is viewing the same universe (practical life within the practical world). Each one of them interprets the universe he sees in term of his existing knowledge.   The Gnani sees his body, his ego and his experience of the world as mere mirage created out of consciousness whereas the ignorant sees his body as body, his ego as ego and his experience of the world as world. 

Thus experiencing the pain and pleasure within the illusion with the illusory self, within the illusory experience, has to be illusion. The illusion is created, and sustained, and finally dissolves as consciousness, which is the innermost Self.  Since, there is no second thing other than the consciousness (soul); the consciousness itself is ultimate truth or Brahman.   The one who has realized this truth for him this illusion is passing show because he is fully aware of the fact that his body, his ego and his experience of the world to be consciousness. Practical peoples approach is more practical, and they are stuck with the reality of the practical life within the practical world, they take it as real whereas for Gnani has the firm conviction that:- The formless soul or Consciousness is the witness that experiences the action, the actor, and the world of separate things. It is like a light that illuminates everything in a theatre, revealing the master of ceremonies, the guests, and the dancers with complete impartiality. Even when they all depart, the light shines to reveal their absence.

What is not the  consciousness (formless) in the experience of diversity (universe or waking)?  The waking and the dream cease to exist without consciousness.  The seeker, seeking and his destination   all are one in essence.

Love, happiness and misery are part of the illusory reality. Creation is neither good nor bad; it is as it is because it is illusory reality.  Until we think duality as reality we bound to experience the burden and bondage as reality.

 It is the thinking faculty, which puts all sorts of constructions on it, as it sees things from its own angle and as it suits its own interests within the illusion. Not becoming aware of the fact that experience of diversity which consists of man and universe is a  mere illusion is the causes of all the misery in the world.

Within the experience of duality one feels there the world is creation. And world existed prior to him and he is born in the world afterwards. But in reality there is neither creation, nor creator because the experience of diversity is created out of single formless clay.   Illusion is like cloud and it continues to move and when it is enlightened with coolness it vanishes and realizes it is mere water.

 It is the human mind that created all difficulties in realizing the truth of its true existence, by imagining all sorts of theories based on the form to realize the formless reality. One has to realize the fact that the formless is prior to the form, how can one realize the truth, by theories  based on the form [body], which cease to exist without  the world and the world ceases to  exist without waking or dream . And waking dream cease to exist without the formless witness.  Thus the waking or dream which consists of the man and world are dependent on the formless for its existence.

 The idea of God is creation of man. Man worship God within the  illusory  duality . Man and the world do not exist in reality, because they are the part of the mirage created out of consciousness . Therefore whatever man sees, knows, believes and experiences of the world are  part of the illusion. Thus the godly business is a  reality due to  inborn and inherited ignorance. For the truth seeker the truth itself is God. That is the soul, which is present in the form of consciousness itself is God.
