Ramesh past away this autum/winter, here is some words from this great sage from India:
Who wants to know what?
Our intellect or the ability the human being have namely "thinking", creates the idea in the Human that he is a separate entity, an individual. There is the constant feeling and an overwhelming conviction, that the world is over there and the sense of me is something different. This very idea, thought of separation IS the bondage. And with this concept of bondage the idea of liberation comes in. The intellect has separated him from the rest of the universe. The liberation comes when he realizes that he cannot be a separate entity, that he is an unbroken part with the whole of universe. When the impersonal consciousness identifies with an object, then the me comes in. It is the impersonal consciousness that brings about the individual, the individual is a concept. So the realisation of the falasy of the individual is the elightenment.
