20.3 “Where is Knowledge and ignorance? Where is “I”? Where is “this”? Where is “mine”? Where is bondage and liberation? Self has no attributes” Verse revisited on 27-August-2022 The veil of maya illusion and instrument of mind Narrow sensory spectrum that too does bind Useful no doubt for the world of transience Yet reveals not our soul’s luminescence Whilst wisdom directly imbibed in stillness When entwined with universal consciousness Merely dropping away of mind-body instrument That we become aware of the inner bliss current Becoming in effect that who we always were In active cognition feeling nodes within stir Head-heart fusion, both now act as one ‘I’, ‘this’ and ‘mine’ become light of the sun Wherein all that is, is consciousness singular One appearing as the many as boundaries blur The all pervading spiritual light self-luminescent Renewing within itself God’s rapturous bliss current
