#682a

January 3, 2013

The mind and world reinforce each other.
As world happens, mind thinks about it.
As mind thinks, illusion blocks truth and wisdom.

Conversely, when mind and world are let go, even temporarily during contemplation, reality is known and wisdom is clearly recognized.

  1. “When the mind has ceased to be because of the total absence of the notions of material existence, consciousness exists in its own nature as consciousness: and that is known as pure being. When consciousness devoid of notions of objectivity merges in itself losing its separate identity as it were, it is pure being. When all objects, external (material) and internal (notional) merge in consciousness, there is pure being of consciousness. This is the supreme vision which happens to all liberated ones, whether they seem to have a body or they are without one. This vision is available to one who has been ‘awakened’, to one who is in a state of deep contemplation, and to a man of Self-knowledge; it is not experienced by the ignorant person.”

    ~ The Supreme Yoga, Yoga Vasistha
