Discernment yields Freedom from the illusory Bondage when the World is apparently perceived as well as when it is not perceived, as in Deep Dreamless Sleep, samadhi, & the interval between thoughts.
By Self-Knowledge, one realizes the Self is not of the World & is not in the World. The Self is not produced by anything of the World, shares none of its limited qualities, & is not an object within the World. The Self is neither the Body nor located in the Body. Once there is deeper Knowledge regarding the Self, the questions about the World's nature no longer arise.
The Realization of the Unborn (everlasting) Reality is the Realization of no creation. In the absence of this Knowledge, there may arise confusion such as: "If the World is unreal why does it appear; if the World is unreal why does it not disappear ?"
The confusion is rooted in the delusive supposition that the Senses determine Reality, & the that Knower is conceived as a sensory being engaged in experience that is of the same Sense nature as himself. Deep Self-Inquiry into the nature of the Knower himself will result in the absence of a defined, separate experiencer & thus the absence of the World, the supposedly the "experienced" or Known. This yields the revelation of one infinite Existence of the Self. The meaning of "all is the Self" or "all as Brahman" is comprehended in this Non-Dual Knowledge without a trace of anything other.
