Excerpt About Consciousness
All of Existence is a Manifestation of ConsciousnessOne realizes that all of existence is a manifestation of consciousness; that ultimately everything is made out of consciousness. This can happen only when one transcends identity with the body. There are many ways that this realization appears. One is the perception that there is an infinite and boundless ocean of Presence-Consciousness-Love, and that all physical forms appear to arise out of this substratum. One's body and the rest of the universe appear as forms arising out of this primordial substance. One feels direct affinity and divine love for everybody and everything.
