Student Question: Ultimately there has to be a transcendence of the thought that there is anyone there; the concept that there is anyone aware of this. Is that right?

Not only are we someone, we are “the One.” But we are not, nevertheless, someone as an ego identity. We are the Universal Intelligence. The Supreme Self. And because of our limited ego-minds, we cannot even hope to comprehend the vastness of our transfinite nature, at least not when we still categorize reality in language. But when we let go of language, one of the more subtle, but powerful, attachments, then we can start to understand our Supreme Nature. Language limits us because it is finite thought. “And we’re so attached to finite thought because it’s what gives us the illusion of power over events. . . . But it doesn’t allow us to access infinite thought.” When we can keep the mind silent for long enough, we can start to download realizations; the famous, enlightening “Aha!” moments of legends such as Aurobindo or Spinoza when unfathomable amounts of information enter the mind in one instant. And this is available to anyone who has the dedication to completely silence the mind. Recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 18, 2009.
