Forget the Absolute, look at your life

Question: Acharya Ji, is everything happening in the realm of ‘consciousness’? And is the Absolute outside that realm, unaffected?

Acharya Prashant Ji: The first part of the question is valid. The second one is merely speculative, of no help.

Yes, all that is happening, or not happening, is all within the domain of ‘consciousness’.

What is outside that domain?

Dishonest consciousness.

‘Dishonest’ because it is still ‘consciousness’, but is calling itself, as ‘beyond consciousness’.

So consciousness says, “O! This is my domain, and then beyond me is the Absolute.” No, beyond consciousness, is ‘dishonest consciousness’.

If you can conceptualise it, speak of it, imagine it, describe it, even hint at it, it is still good old ‘consciousness’.

It is not ‘Absolute’.

Limit yourself to ‘consciousness’, and learn about the ways of ‘consciousness’. If you can learn the ways of ‘consciousness’, that is the blessing of the ‘Absolute’.

The ‘Absolute’ cannot be known the way objects and consciousness are. The Absolute is known, when you know ‘consciousness’ itself.

Are you getting it?

‘Absolute’ is not just another thing in the ‘consciousness’. ‘Absolute’ is when you go to the very roots of ‘consciousness’. And how do you do that? You do that by beginning where you are. You are in consciousness, you are conscious, you are surrounded by consciousness.

All this that you perceive, including yourself, the world, your relationships, things, this-that, know what they are.

And if you can deeply, rightly, honestly know, that is – Absoluteness.
