~ An Observation ~
There is value in viewing the world as a play. That which you witness knowing that is in an illusion does not affect your inner peace.
"I knew that I was perceiving an illusion. At the same time, I also perceived the present experience. Though I was being carried away by the flood, I experienced joy." The Sage, page 630
The Play of Infinite Consciousness
In Three Acts
You (Self) dwell in 'me' in a state of equilibrium as pure witness consciousness, without form and without the divisions of time and space.
The infinite self entertains the notion 'I am Mind' . . .
The Mind assumes it has a Body. . .
and, assumes a variety of creatures with all sorts of relationships existing between them and all subject to time.
Infinite Consciousness plays the roles of all beings.
Like a mirror which holds a reflection within itself, without undergoing any modification in itself, this consciousness appears as all these countless beings.
"It is clear that this is nothing but the play of the mind; the mind itself is but the play of the omnipotent infinite being."
This entire creation is like a stage. Diverse scenes arise and cease day after day.
The Stage is illumined by the sun and the moon and the stars.
Accompanied by the celestial music and the roaring of the oceans.
This delightful cosmic dance that you see in front of you. . .is but the play of the infinite consciousness. The Lord who is infinite consciousness is non-different from the dancer and the dance.
Delusion of the world-existence attains expansion by its repeated affirmations.
This play is an adaptation using quotations from the unabridged Vasistha's Yoga.
