The World, time, space, life, death, objective things, the mind, ignorance, bondage, & an experiencer of these are just concepts. Concepts are unreal. Absolute Being alone is. (2.55)
Spiritual notes of a great Sage 2
Reality remains unchanging states of Mind — Waking, Dream, & Deep Dreamless Sleep. Look to the common sense of Existence in all 3 States.
In every experience, the changing expression is the objective part, while the un changing Background is the subjective Consciousness part, which is the changeless Reality.
Bodies seem to be born & die, while the subjective Self transcends both.
Knowledge alone can know Knowledge, Brahman alone knows Brahman. That in you which knows you exist is Brahman.
Each is already Liberated, & he has only to know it.
Whatever you assume yourself, the Atma [Self] to be, so you will see the World "outside" you.
If you want Suffering, be attached to the World. If you want Happiness, be spiritual.
The vanishingly narrow "razor" of the "Present" moment is only a word representing the conceptual joining of a remembered, long-gone Past & an imagined, not-yet existing Future.
After Realization you may outwardly live exactly as before in terms of Objective appearance; but you cannot fail to know the Subjective transformation you have undergone.
Liberated Knowledge that dawns on the subsidence of the Ego can never cease to be.
Realization consists in becoming deeply aware of the fact that you have never been in Bondage.
Because Realization can never happen, it can never occur in Time. Only timeless self-awareness of the always-so Reality becomes vivid.
Self-Realization is not a case of understanding at all, but of being one with the Truth. Merging identity is a better hint at the inexpressible than any kind of thinking.
