The nature of the one Reality must be known by one’s own clear
spiritual perception; it cannot be known through a pandit
(learned man). Similarly the form of the moon can only be
known through one’s own eyes. How can it be known through others?
Who but the Atman is capable of removing the bonds of ignorance, passion and self-interested action?
Liberation cannot be achieved except by the perception of the
identity of the individual spirit with the universal Spirit. It can
be achieved neither by Yoga (physical training), nor by Sankhya
(speculative philosophy), nor by the practice of religious ceremonies,
nor by mere learning. . . .
Disease is not cured by pronouncing the name of medicine, but
by taking medicine. Deliverance is not achieved by repeating the word
Brahman,’ but by directly experiencing Brahman. . . .
The Atman is the Witness of die individual mind and its operations.
It is absolute knowledge. . . .
The wise man is one who understands that the essence of
Brahman and of Atman is Pure Consciousness, and who realizes
their absolute identity. The identity of Brahman and Atman is
affirmed in hundreds of sacred texts. . . .
Caste, creed, family and lineage do not exist in Brahman. Brahman
has neither name nor form, transcends merit and demerit, is
beyond time, space and the objects of sense-experience. Such is
Brahman, and ‘ thou art That.’ Meditate upon this truth within
Supreme, beyond the power of speech to express, Brahman may
yet be apprehended by the eye of pure illumination. Pure, absolute
and eternal Reality such is Brahman, and ‘thou art That.’
Everything that exists in every dimension has a unique vibrational signature. Thought is the metronome that determines the frequency to which you are tuned. Consciousness is complete; it is the resultant force of the creator. Thought is the definer of the resonant vibrations in your reality. You are the master alchemist of your life by participating in the flow of consciousness that surrounds you and mastering the thoughts within you. There is nothing that can be created that is not first thought of. There is no creation that can be sustained without focused thought. Without the intentional, focused thought, your creations would wither like unwatered grass in the heat of the sun. Consciousness is eternal, resonant vibrations must be sustained to manifest creation. Therefore, the earth upon which you stand, the universe in which you dwell, exists because of an intentional, focused thought in the mind of All That Is.
Consciousness was the first split that man introduced into himself. He became a perceiver rather than a creator in the true sense. Consciousness is correctly identified as the domain of the ego. The ego is a man-made attempt to perceive himself as he wished to be rather than as he is. This is an example of the created-creator confusion we have spoken of before. Yet man can only know himself as he is because that is all he can be sure of. Everything else is open to question
Consciousness is the necessary precondition of all knowing;nothing can be known unless consciousness reveals it; it’s impossible to think consciousness away or imagine its absence;
