Consciousness - Philosophical Research Material

I love the concept of how we all create our own maya (illusion) and the only way to be free is to free the mind. So simple, yet hard for the mind to grasp
I AM the WAY, the Master who watches in silence; thy friend and thy shelter and thy abode of peace. I AM the beginning and the middle and the end of all things: their seed of Eternity, their Treasure supreme. (Bhagavad Gita 9:18)

Hare Krishna!

In the context of consciousness existing with or without the body, The “free” mind you speak of is only a hard state to achieve because consciousness has to cater for the physical body, our bodies are pre programmed with survival instincts and ego built into us over generations, without such programming, as physical beings we would have never survived such harsh environments here on earth.

These survival instincts have served us well but there comes a time when one has to involves himself with self enquiry, only at this stage of our evolution do we have brains capable of such thought and can move beyond our primitive ways of being, one can hope that now we have come to this competent stage in our evolution, we can maybe evolve towards a more cooperative state between brain and consciousness.

Such a state arises through meditation to quiet the senses and survival programming, or naturally through self enquiry, when the ego and fear is dropped the mental chatter of survival and ego is lesser and thus our natural “inner worlds” state of mind arises, through diligent practise maybe the human race can move forward towards an evolutionary state that welcomes the natural mind more readily.

Great info. I actually seen The Cave video and Bruce Lee's interview quite a while ago :D

I really like your understanding uMonk. Programming is hard to escape because of what society demands. The noise will always slow us down.
"God help thee, old man, thy thoughts have created a creature in thee; and he whose intense thinking thus makes him a Prometheus; a vulture feeds upon that heart for ever; that vulture the very creature he creates."
