Essence of Breema: 13 December, 2022

Walking on the bank of the rivers gorge.

The Universe is not the Universe unless you include yourself in it. You can’t say that something exists unless you include yourself. The world is the world only with you as a part of it. When you know yourself, when you know that you are, you are a part of the fundamental unity of all that exists. This knowledge cannot be experienced in your head, in your feelings, or by your body. But it could be experienced in your consciousness. We don’t know what consciousness is, but it is something that is not our mind, feelings, or body. If mind, feelings, and body come together, we have receptivity that allows us to experience consciousness. That’s when the world comes into existence for us. Before that, we just take our idea of the world to be the world.
